    The .MDS file is a small meta file that contains description information about the associated ISO. The .MDS file contains the layer break (for dual-layer backups) as well as other helpful information regarding burning. It is not an ISO file nor can a .MDS file be converted into a ISO. You must have the ISO; however, you can usually have an ISO without a .MDS file. To answer your question, when burning, I always burn from the .MDS file if there is one. Choose the .MDS as a matter of habit.
