    scroll down and uncheck the box that says "hide file extensions for known file types",
    click OK, go back to your iso file, right click, rename, then delete the extension .exe replace with .bin.
    Now it should show up.* B)

    @The_Great_Dude...how do you suggest renaming the file extension that windows associates with the program.
    I have to use a rename utility and have never been able to change the association with a right click. I am on an XP Pro machine btw.

    A utility is not needed for renaming extensions. It is set to default you can't rename them because most users will get confused. You could also do other things with it such as convert it, virtual drive, etc.
