File name extensions are meaningless in UNIX.  You can call them
anything you want.  As somebody else observed, it might be a
proprietary format, in which case you're out of luck.  But don't
assume anything based on the name.  file(1) is your friend some of the
time, but it doesn't recognize ISO images.
