Hi all,

Can we write in UDF file format in DVDs using nero api?
How the file system is set for DVD?


Yes, you write using UDF. You can select UDF by using the NCITEF_CREATE_UDF_FS flag in the NeroCreateIsoTrackEx function call.

If you want to write files the same way you do on a normal disk, then you are better off using a hard disk. They are cheap and reliable, and besides:

  • you don’t need a DVD recorder
  • you don’t need recording software
  • you don’t have to worry about media compatibility
  • you don’t have to fear a PC freeze each time you write on the UDF filesystem.

Avoid UDF as much as you can.
