  1. How can I add files to an ISO image.

    For example i want to copy a CD <aka Clone> and then add files to the image before I burn it.

    Can anyone suggest a program that can do this

    I don't know of a way to do this.. It probably has something to do with an ISO file being exact copy of the file system.

    I usually just extract the files on my hard disk and add my own, then burn it to a CD.

    That is also what I would suggest....

    Extract image to your HD then add the files to whatever folder needed, then just burn the resultant image.

    I assume you're using Windows, so check out ISOBuster. It should do the job and a lot more.

    WinISO is also really good.

    I think you can just open the file and add files to it pretty easily. Never tried it before, however. I can't find a reason why not...

    How can you endorse something you've never used?

    I've used it for opening and extracting ISO files :stickout: just not adding files and the like.

    WinISO works great for me.

    You can get a trial version at winiso.com, which you can upgrade to the full thing for $30....but you know how else you can get the full version...;)

    - but that's up to you and your conscience.


    On the other hand, there might be a similar free program that does the job..
