PowerIso question

Hi,
I have an ISO file containing numerous sub files, and I want to change a couple of the values in one of those files.
When I open an individual sub-file, it opens in Notepad, and I can change the values I want to change, but I cannot then save that changed file.
On the help tutorials for PowerIso, it appears that I can delete or add a file, and I was wondering, do I have to create a new sub-file with the values changed, and then delete the old sub-file and add the new one.
It just seems a long way of doing a simple change.......................but I don't know the answer.

Hi again,

I have never had the need to edit ISO files so my advice may be somewhat limited.
I assume that you have seen this on the PowerISO website ?

Yes, I've seen those instructions.
They seem to suggest what I put in the post above.As I said I can open the main iso file with PowerIso, but when I change values in the subfiles, I cannot save those changes.
I'll try and do what I thought might be the case and see what happens.

Just to update this thread.
I opened the ISO file with PowerIso, found the file I wanted to alter. I could only open that file with NotePad, so I copied it, changed the value I needed to, and saved that file
Using PowerIso, I deleted the original file and added my newly created file.
Everything looks OK, but it doesn't work....................... so perhaps I'm no further forward.
It maybe doesn't work because the value I changed causes problems, or the method I used was wrong. If I find out I will update
