Can't extract ISO

Sep 30, 2010 at 11:05 AM

I want to extract an ISO file that has been created with tool Alcohol 120%.

This ISO file can be extracted with 7z GUI and WinRar. However it can't be extracted with SevenZipSharp because SevenZipSharp can't recognize the mime type. (The header bytes of the file start with a lot of 0's.)

It is not exactly the same problem as this one: because no readme.txt is produced.

Sometimes I wish that SevenZipExtractor.Format was a settable property.

It is very easy to add the explicit format specification to the Extractor constructor, but I am afraid that many people will get it wrong and always set formats in their code. So you think I should add something like


using (var extr = new SevenZipExtractor("file", InArchiveFormat.Udf))



don't you?

Time shows that this solution is unavoidable.

Anyway, if you could extract the Udf signature from the image, it would be great. I will mention you in SevenZipSharp code :)
