I have the followjng problem with ISO master software: I try to edit WIndows 7 ISO image

$ isomaster windows7.iso

The file does open, unfortunately all I get is README with message:

This disc contains a "UDF" file system and requires an operating system that supports the ISO-13346 "UDF" file system specification.

isomaster comes form Ubuntu repository, I am using 12.04. The system has kernel support for UDF installed, I can mount above ISO (mount -o loop) and see its content read only. Any idea how to fix it? Using other than isomaster tool is also an option. Regards, Jacek

Why was this flagged off topic? Question is about using Ubuntu software from the repos. – Tom Brossman Dec 13 '12 at 18:43
Apparently isomaster does not support UDF. – psusi Dec 13 '12 at 18:48
ISO master is positioned ISO editor of choice on this forum. Lack of UDF support and consequently lack of Windows image editing capability is a serious drawback and should be clearly stated so people don't waste time attempting to do not doable. – Jacek Blocki Dec 13 '12 at 22:42
@Jacek Blocki, that is a good point. You should open a bug against the isomaster package to update their document to clearly state this information. – PJ Singh Nov 4 '14 at 20:03
