When you say "iso", are you referring to an archive? If moving some files is blocked, then those files within the archive are probably locked; or you do not have sufficient admin privileges. You may need to inspect the individual files within the iso to identify their properties and permissions, and change them if necessary.

You need to mount the .iso, double clicking it should suffice.
