http://serverfault.com – I have a .iso file under linux and have been trying to find a way to change the volume id without having to recreate the .iso file. Most of the authoring tools such as mkisofs provide a switch for setting the volume (-V) for example. However I can't figure out how to change it on a pre-existing .iso file. For clarification, the bit I'm trying to change is this Volume id: string. Here's an example dump from the isoinfo command. % isoinfo -d -i /usr/share/virtualbox/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso CD-ROM is in ISO 9660 format System id: Win32 Volume id: VBOXADDITIONS_4.1.8_75467 Volume set id: Publis (HowTos)
