Free ISO editor.

by chris_sundown13 / June 22, 2008 11:45 PM PDT

What is a good free ISO editor for Vista? I use InfraRecorder for burning CD's and DVD's. I also have Roxio My DVD avalibal if needed. Thease are both burning software not editors. I would like a free ISO editing software package.

How about a workaround?

I don't know of any good, free, Vista-compatible ISO editors off the top, but what does pop to mind is using a compression utility such as ExtractNow to extract the contents, modify them as needed, then use the ISO compilation feature of CDBurnerXP or the like to create a new ISO from the modified files. Performs the same basic duties with minimal extra work.

Hope this helps,
John

Not on a bootable ISO.

That wouldn't work with a bootable ISO. One would loose the boot sectors doing that but a ISO editor keeps thouse.

Is it worth it? I found paying for software to be a great way to get what I want done.

There are free ways to creat and edit ISO files in Linux why not in Vista. I may just try to edit it in a vertual machean if unable to find one.

Did I miss something?

Look at the target audience of Vista. They wouldn't know a .ISO if it sat in their lap and called them papa. Linux didn't come with such but did you just reveal you have a working solution?

Most tech's know how to use and edit ISO files. Vista is just a operatting system. The long going debate can exist on weather a good OS or not. The same problem would exist with any version of windows. That's why I was asking for a Free ISO editor. Linux has some and the technology is built into most distrobutions if not all, but I am useing windows right now for school and work.

Test this.

Ask 10 random Vista owners to create an ASCII text file with the numbers 1 to 10 in it and you will find better than half at best buy would ask What's a text file?

Sadly you may demand that such a feature exists and that it be free but you have misread the market for Vista.

Two-step Process, but completely free
by tommyleeyyz / December 10, 2008 12:34 PM PST

Get the following:
1. WinIso or UltraIso (Full = $, but trial version has 320MB write limit)
2. Free ISO Creator 2.8 (Free)

User either WinIso or UltraIso to extract files from CD (no limitations with trial version). Manipulate the files as desired. Use Free ISO Creator to create the ISO file, thereby getting around WinIso/UltraIso's write limitation. Burn.
Cheers
