So what? there will be no need to later burn these files into CD in order to use them as any other ordinary files in case of a CD image, directly use the files from folder in case of ZIP files without extracting them with compression/decompression tools. In situations where you want to retain the content whether its video or any other media at the same time use them. It does have many other capabilities along with the mounting files options.
