It might be already a type of ISO file. Can you open it with file roller or archive manager?

Do you know what you downloaded? Is it a disk image?

When using openstudio and you choose to create your build as an ISO and or Live Cd it created the image and allows you to download it after you are satisfied with what you have. Once downloaded it comes as a build.tar.gz (600MG) and uncompressed, it is a build.raw (2.6G) file. I read that you can just rename it as build.iso and then burn it but that did not work. It seems as though I have to convert it to an ISO from the RAW format that it is in. thanks

I scanned the help pages on the their website and you can create your build as either a CD/DVD, hard disk image or a VM. The raw image appears to be the hard disk version. Using the dd command you would copy the file to a USB or hard drive.
