Default dvd filesystem type

when you guys mount your dvds, do you use the cd9660 standard or mount with udf?

I believe cd9660. Why not give it a shot and find out?

thats what i thought too but i was reading wikipedia earlier and read this, dont know how relevant this is:

DVDs may also use the ISO 9660 file system. However, the UDF file system is more appropriate on DVDs as it has better support for the larger media and is better suited for modern operating system needs.

It's not going to break your disk if you try the wrong one! Give it a shot and let us know how it goes

cd9660 works fine. im more curious if using udf is a better option or not with FreeBSD.

EDIT: for instance i have only done a simple read/write to a recordable dvd-r. I have not tried anything like copying files from a CSS encrypted dvd. If udf has better support for stuff like this is what im curious about.

UDF is in a so-called 'sorry-state' in FreeBSD, so nothing to worry about. Your aren't able to read most modern versions or more complex ones.

See my PR,
