I want to corrupt a file while burning it on a CD, is there a way to overlap some sectors of that file with another one while burning?

Maybe with the .cue file or a second session instructed to overlap the last couple sectors of the disc?

Thanks a lot.

What are you trying to achieve with this? – Devdatta Tengshe Oct 8 '10 at 3:07
I'm trying to corrupt a file enough so only one part of it is readable by the machine. – Javier Parra Oct 8 '10 at 13:51
And what are you trying to achieve by that? Why not just copy the file and remove some of it? – Wuffers Nov 7 '10 at 16:16

You can use an ISO editor to simulate this.

  1. Make an ISO
  2. Modify the file you want in the way you want
  3. Burn the modified ISO
