in the compressed file there is no more .img file, only the individual folders and the Isos, how to create the pendrive?
Use Ventoy2Disk to create the flash drive.

Then format the drive as FAT32.

Then extract the zip's contents to the root of the drive, and you're all done. :)

Hi Jayro - thank you for these great tools.

One issue i am having is most of the different ISO's do not recognise the WiFi cards in my machines so i cannot do a definition update. I have tried this on a couple of laptops and desktops and it doesn't work on any?

Is this normal?

Yeah, it's normal. The ISOs typically all use old versions of Linux, and the manufacturers don't keep them updated. Sadly, antivirus bootdisks are becoming a thing of the past it seems.

Your C drive isn't your M.2? It should be possible.

Hi again, Jayro...
You told me in another reply about replacing the old ISOs in the USB with the newest ones:

"Yes, you can update the ISOs by replacing them with new versions. But if you don't edit ventoy.json to match, their icons won't show up. Not a huge deal, but worth mentioning."

What would happen if I keep the same name for old and new Isos? Would there be any problem?

Thanks in advance
