Some minutes ago I wrote in this topic a very detailed report of new tests while being logged in, and suddenly I see the topic again, as if I didn't write anything.
So, If you need more specifics, I'll write the report again. In the meantime, the final conclusion after testing the extraction using 7-zip, uniextract, Peazip and IZArc, is that there is no difference, no "strange" behaviors, except for the boot record ("[BOOT]" or "boot.images" folders and files inside them).

I installed IZArc V4.1.2, but couldn't get it to extract the UBCD ISO.
When I opened the UBCD ISO in IZArc, I don't see anything at all. Whereas when I opened it in 7-Zip, I could see all the files.
@ady: Any advice on how to get IZArc to extract the UBCD ISO?
I'm using IZArc2go, the portable version, but I guess is the same. Open IZArc -> "File" -> "Open Archive". At the "Open Archive" dialog, change the file type (bottom-right corner), instead of "All Archives", select "All images". Now select the path to the iso image and select the iso you want to open.
You should see the content at the right panel, and the folders' tree of the opened iso at the left panel. (IZArc hasn't the "file manager" functions of 7-zip, so the left panel only has the folders' tree inside
the archive/image you opened).
If, instead of using the "File" - "Open Archive" method, you want to use Drag&Drop, then first open IZArc, and when you drag the iso image into IZArc's UI, drop it over the "Open" icon of the toolbar (not over the left panel).
@Icecube and Victor, let me know if you need more specifics or additional info.
BTW, all 4 programs (7-zip, uniextract, Peazip, and IZArc) are either freeware or open source, and have portable versions.
