newfs_udf -- construct a new UDF file system SYNOPSIS
newfs_udf [-cFM] [-L loglabel] [-P discid] [-p percentage] [-S setlabel] [-s size] [-t gmtoff] [-V max_udf] [-v min_udf] special DESCRIPTION
The newfs_udf utility creates an UDF file system on device special suitable for the media currently inserted. The options are as follow: -c Perform a crude surface check first to weed out disc faults on rewritable media. -F Force file system construction on non-empty recordable media. -L loglabel Set the disc logical label to the specified loglabel. -M Disable metadata partition creation when selected UDF version or media dictates this. For strict conformance and interchange, don't disable this unless its causing problems. -P discid Set the physical disc label to the specified discid. For strict conformance and interchange, don't set this manually. -p percentage Percentage of partition to be initially reserved for metadata on the Metadata partition. It defaults to 20 %. -S setlabel Set the disc set label to the specified setlabel. For strict conformance and interchange, don't set this manually. -s size Ignored for now. -t gmtoff Use the specified gmtoff as gmt time offset for recording times on the disc. -V max_udf Select max_udf as the maximum UDF version to be supported. For UDF version 2.50, use ``0x250'' or ``2.50''. -v min_udf Select min_udf as the minimum UDF version to be supported. For UDF version 2.01, use ``0x201'' or ``2.01''. NOTES
The UDF file system is defined for the entire optical medium. It can only function on the entire CD/DVD/BD so the raw partition has to be specified for read/write actions. For newfs_udf this means specifying the raw device with the raw partition, i.e. /dev/rcd0d or /dev/rcd0c. Some rewritable optical media needs to be formatted first before it can be used by UDF. This can be done using mmcformat(8). The default UDF version is version 2.01. EXAMPLES
newfs_udf -S "Encyclopedia" -L "volume 2" -P "copy-nr-1" /dev/rcd0d Create a file system, using the specified names on the device /dev/rcd0d with the default UDF version. dd if=/dev/zero of=bigdisk.2048.udf seek=9999999 count=1 vnconfig -c vnd0 bigdisk.2048.udf 2048/1/1/1 newfs_udf -L bigdisk /dev/rvnd0d Create a 4.8 GiB sparse file and configure it using vnconfig(8) to be a 2048 sector size disc and create a new UDF file system on /dev/rvnd0d. newfs_udf -L "My USB stick" /dev/rsd0d Create a new UDF file system on the inserted USB stick using its ``native'' sectorsize of 512.

cdrwtool - perform various actions on a CD-R, CD-RW, and DVD-R SYNOPSIS
cdrwtool -d device -i | -g cdrwtool -d device -s [ write-parameters ] cdrwtool -d device -q [ write-parameters ] cdrwtool -d device -m offset [ write-parameters ] cdwrtool -d device -u blocks [ write-parameters ] cdrwtool -d device -b b_mode [ write-parameters ] cdrwtool -d device -c blocks [ write-parameters ] cdwrtool -d device -f filename [ write-parameters ] cdwrtool -d device -r track [ write-parameters ] cdrwtool -h DESCRIPTION
The cdwrtool command can perform certain actions on a CD-R, CD-RW, or DVD-R device. Mainly these are blanking the media, formating it for use with the packet-cd device, and applying an UDF filesystem. The most common usage is probably the `quick setup' option: cdrwtool -d device -q which will blank the disc, format it as one large track, and write the UDF filesystem structures. Other options get and set various parameters of how the device is set up, and provide for different offsets, modes and settings from the defaults. The usefulness of most of the options is not explained. OPTIONS
Main directives: -d device Specify the device to use. eg. /dev/sr0 -i Print disc track info. -g Print write parameters. -u length Make a UDF filesystem using length number of blocks. -m offset Format the disc at offset number of blocks. -b mode Blank the disk using a mode of `full' or `fast'. -f filename Write file. -c track Close track. -r track Reserve track. -z length Fixed packet length. -s Set write parameters determined by -l, -w, and -p options for the disc. -v version Specify the udf revision to use. Valid revisions are 0x0201, 0x0200, 0x0150, and 0x0102. If omitted, mkudffs udf-version is 0x0150. -h Prints a sparse help message. Write parameters: -t speed Set write speed. (Defaults to 12x ?) -l type Set multi-session field. Either `0', `1', or `3', corresponding to `No B0 pointer. Next Session not allowed', `B0 pointer = FF:FF:FF. Next session not allowed', and `Next session allowed. B0 pointer = next possible program area' respectively. -w mode Set write mode. Either `mode1' or `mode2'. -p type Set packet type. Either `0' or `1', corresponding to variable and fixed packet sizes respectively. -o offset Set write offset. AUTHORS
