So far I have burn so many ISO image into CD/DVD. But never try to burn multiple ISO image into one bootable disk. Recently I have downloaded some ISO files of system utilities software and want to make bootable CD. Though I could make bootable CD in a single disk of those ISO image singly but I want to combine them all in a bootable DVD.

I am running Nero 7 version in my pc to burn file. But I can’t see any option to combine all those ISO files. Do you know any other software to burn multiple ISO image easily? Please let me know if you have the correct answer.

Dear Foster,

You did not combine multiple ISO images in bootable DVD. There are only one method: write four ISO images in one DVD as data format not an image format. There are no software available to burn multiple ISO images in one DVD as image.

Alternate solution:

What you can do: mount each of the images on a Linux system, then try aggregating the items of each ISO filesystem into one. If no conflicts exists then you can build a new ISO image with the aggregated data. Finally, burn that ISO to a DVD.

Nero burning software is the best and simplest software for burn the CDs/ DVDs.

Cheers

Unfortunately, what you want to do is not possible. An ISO file is an image of one actual CD or DVD disc. And it is designed to be burned on one CD or DVD disc only. If you have many ISO files, there’s no problem if you want to burn them but as data files and not as a bootable disc.

You can also add them as data files to an existing bootable CD or DVD but you have to edit the image of the bootable disc and include the ISO files. But still, you won’t be able to access them once the bootable disc starts to load unless you’re in Microsoft Windows and not in the DOS environment.

Also, there’s no way to access the contents of the ISO files if you add them as data files. You have to unpack them first with WinZip, WinRAR, or 7-Zip.
