CFS files were designed to be easier to read than ISO files, which can be difficult to read due to the large range of supported storage options in the ISO specification. Since CFS files are compatible with the ISO file standard, they can be read by many existing ISO applications.

NOTE: The CFS format is based on the following standards: ISO-9660, Joliet Extensions, ISO-9660:1999, Compact ISO.
