An iso image is a file that is an exact duplicate of a CD or DVD

 

Burn the image refers to creating/burning an iso image (filename.iso) to CD or DVD.

 

 

Mounting an image is to treat the iso file as if it were alreay a CD or DVD without burning it to disk.

i will explain it my way ;)

 

get a picture at the art gallery, in order to get everyone to see it you must mount it.

 

in this case the picture is an image except its data, regardless if its on a cd or sitting in some folder it can be mounted, when its mounted the operating system can see it and run that data, i believe for windows they call it a virtual drive, this tricks windows into thinking its a cd/ dvd .
