Default ISO Editor with no limit

Hello,

I am looking for a freeware program to edit ISO files.

What I mean is to take an ISO file and either remove file or add files to it.

There are commercial programs that do this (I don't think I'm allowed to mention any names) and one of these offers a free option but is limited to 300Mb.

Finding a free program to do this can't be Magic

Can anyone help?

Regards,

Paul

I only know of a Linux version. All the free Windows programs I'm aware of have some sort of 'catch' that makes them virtually useless. Maybe others have greater knowledge.

Unfortunately most capable ISO editors for Windows are either features limited or not free, but there are other ways to do it. For example, see this article: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-ad...so-in-windows/

You're welcome Paul. For Linux, maybe you can try ISO Master http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/iso-master.htm

Yes, it's the same program referenced by Jojo.

Default But why is it so hard

Just wondering why it is so hard for someone to code a simple iso editing program for Wndows?

If it was easy then surely someone would have developed one right.

Unless I am missing something.

PS I edited the iso in Ubuntu and then did further work using another free program called wintoolkit to add updates to a W8 iso. Saved myself hours of Downloads following a clean install.

Cool :-)

I guess the devs note on the ISO Master site gives a clue.

"What happened to the Windows version? I’ve removed it from the site, most likely permanently. Sorry, it was costing me too much bandwidth and I was making too little money from it".

Mainly because
a) CD distribuion is not common enough
b) it is just as easy to extract and rebuild a CD
c) CDs (the media) don't lend themselves to being updated.
