    "Invalid ISO file - The selected ISO file is not a valid ISO file.
    Please select a valid ISO file and try again"

    I am trying to use Microsoft's official Tool to create a USB Flash Drive
    from my DVD. I have created the iso file using:

    1) ImgBurn (latest version)
    2) Nero Version 8
    3) PowerISO (5.1)

    Everytime I try to use this iso file, I get the same error:

    "Invalid ISO file - The selected ISO file is not a valid ISO file.
    Please select a valid ISO file and try again"

    I have tried almost everything to noavail. The only way to make the iso
    file compatible is to use: isoavdpcopy_0.1 available free of charge on
    the net but my question is: What is the correct format of ISO file? The
    downloaded version of trial Windows 7 all work fine but how can I create
    the same format using any of the DVD burners/ISO creators.

    Thanks for any insight into this secret M$ format.

    The Official Microsoft Tool I am talking about is this:

    Thanks.

    The tool that fixes this problem is at this link:

    <http://www.withinwindows.com/2009/11/01/use-the-windows-7-usbdvd-download-tool-with-custom-isos/>

    But my question still stands: how do you create the correct format of
    the ISO file without using any other third party tools like the one at
    this link. I just want to use the standard CD/DVD burners that can
    create the ISO files.

    Where did you get the .iso file from?

    He created it (three times, I'd say) using these three apps:

    1) ImgBurn (latest version)
    2) Nero Version 8
    3) PowerISO (5.1)

    Some apps have settings like "Use ISO-9660" (I almost certainly
    misremember that) and other format choices. Possibly the problem
    hot-totty experienced involved wrong default settings in each of the
    three programs.

    I wouldn't touch Nero with a barge-pole.
    I've used ImgBurn for years, always with great success; including recent
    Win8 downloads.
    I got the impression that he'd downloaded the .exe file and tried to
    burn it as an .iso.
    What he should do is run the .exe and point it to the .iso to burn to
    the flash drive. It might even work directly from the Windows DVD in a
    drive.

    Maybe the question is what disk did he extract the ISO from.

    I was too brief.

    I read it that he did not extract an existing ISO but created it from a
    set of files.

    OK, rereading & rethinking yours and Crash's posts, as well as the OP's
    post, I have come around to thinking that the OP's description is either
    limited or ambiguous - or both :)

    So I send my apologies to all concerned.

    >> What he should do is run the .exe and point it to the .iso to burn to

    Nero used to be given away with a new CD burner.
    If you had two burners with different mfrs,
    each Nero version locked out the other.
    Originally, we were able to merge one of the Nero files and stop this
    nonsense. We weren't so lucky with later versions, and gave up on Nero.
    There were (and are) too many other free burner utilities available to
    bother with Nero.

    I've done a bit of re-reading too, and reinterpreted the problem.
    This is my current opinion of what's up.
    1. The OP has downloaded an MS iso of Win8 but has run up against the
    problem dealt with here;
    http://www.withinwindows.com/2009/11/01/use-the-windows-7-usbdvd-download-tool-with-custom-isos/
    2. He has (or maybe hasn't) run the correction tool mentioned;
    "As a quick hack to resolve this issue, I wrote a tool that merely finds
    the AVDP in your ISO file and copies it to offset (EOF-2048). This will
    allow you to use your own ISOs with the Microsoft tool. Microsoft.NET
    2.x or higher required."
    3. He should let us know.

    Hi guys, it seems you know well about win 7. I am posting this hoping you may know what to do next. \
    1. i tried to boot my laptop from DVD, it did not
    2. I tried MS tool. It gives me "Invalid iso", then downloaded "isoavdpcopy.exe ran in command prompt from the same folder that contained win7.iso image. It popped out "specified ISO is read-only"
    3. Now this is funny. What to do next?
    4. My intention is to make a USB run win7 to boot my laptop and install.

    thanks
