Smile UDF support.


Hi all, I'm new to linux and just join this forum. I have several questions on my mind. Let me start with this. I understand Linux support UDF for CD-RW. How do I get it to work? I'm running Fedora Core 6 and my CD-RW drive is a Sony model. Many thanks.

It is as simple as enabling the -udf option in genisoimage... when burning. You need to include udf as a fs option in fstab for your CD.

man genisoimage
man cdrecord

Do you have a specific issue with a udf CD?

UDF support.

Thanks for your advice.

No, I don't have any issue with UDF support. I'm trying to enable it so that I could write data onto the CD-RW disk. What about reading from a disk that is written in UDF? Could I read the data directly like I did in Windows?

Hi, as long as the kernel has the UDF module compiled in it (or as a module) there is no problem (at least, I haven't experienced any).

UDF mode is usually used for rewritable disks that you intend to overwrite or erase.
The normal iso standard is good (better) for everything else (and probably this too).

The standard burners and readers will handle this for you, without any intervention from you.

Stick a udf disk in and it appears on your dektop... honestly, just try these things!

Read the man pages like I told you: they have examples at the end.
