The title says it all. How do I unpack an iso.wv? What program should I use to obtain the separate audio files, cue, etc that I think are contained within the iso.wv?

Any program that can make an ISO file.

Itís just an ISO containing a WavPack file in the first position and then, usually (since I presume this is the point), cover art and other such supplementary files. The reason some people choose to do this is because WavPack decoders will skip a certain amount of unrecognised material at the beginning of a file, so in this case they skip the ISO header (and, I assume, any other files after the audio has EOFd) and begin playing the WavPack file as normal.

I would just use an actual archival format in conjunction with an archive-reading component for my media player if choice, but whatever!
