Compare ISO images for file / directory differences

I am looking for a small app or utility (like winISO size) to compare the contents of two ISO files, for major differences, like extra directories or files in one image vs. the other.  It does not have to search the files themselves, just report which folders and or files are present/absent in one Vs. the other.

I cant find such a program.  If nothing, I will have to extract the ISOs and then do a directory compare.  So in this less-desirable event, anyone know of a utility to show differences in directory contents?  Note, I dont just want a 2-pane explorer, it would have to be something to actuallly analyze the entire trees and report ONLY the differences, both directories and files.....   Thanks.

Windiff Allows you to compare files and folders:

It doesnt work for comparing ISO to finished CD though.  Might be worth a look

Total Commander has a ISO plugin and a Synchronize command. Inside the synchronize command there is a compare feature.

There has been nothing forthcoming from this question that can do the job.  All future readers, please realize that nothing can compare ISO images for similarities and differences, I have checked a hundred sites, and there simply IS nothing.  Of the programs suggested by the people above, none were that good, they did standard directory file compares.  After looking at those, I went with Beyond Compare, as it was clearer than the others suggested.

Nevertheless, these guys did try to help, so I am splitting points.  Thanks for trying guys.
