1 Tera Byte CD..
« on: April 07, 2008, 12:18:11 PM »
When I saw this, I had to post this, take a look at the attached image,

I burned an iso file (about 250 MB) to a 700 MB disk, and now, when I insert the disk, the disk size is reported to be 1 TB!!! Thats 50 times greater than my hard disk! whew, its one of those things that make you go "Oh my God!" with a smile on your face.

The thing is that i edited the iso file with Isoedit (inserted a folder in it), that is what I think caused such a behaviour. This has caused me to lose trust on that program, can you suggest any alternatives??

Never used IsoEdit so not sure what you want to do. I do use IsoBuster and never had any probs with that.

Hehe, I remember something similar *way* back when I messed up a FAT partition slightly with a disk editor. Corrupted filesystem metadata can be funny sometimes...

as for ISO editing programs, UltraISO seems pretty competent.

What I want to do is insert a folder/file in an iso image, I dont think Isobuster does that(though it does a great job of extracting files from scratched cds).

Do you live near a nuclear power plant?
No, but i think my computer is emitting ultraradio-ultraactive rays..

Please may I have a couple of the CDs from that spindle?  :Thmbsup:
Sure, ill just pack them in a radiation proof box and tell me where to teleport them!
