Which DVD standard I can use for UNIX???

Hi there,

I just want to know what is the best DVD-writer & software I can use is PC, but I want to be able to read it from Unix. I tried to burn a DVD from my friend DVD-writer, when I try to read it in Unix the name of the file all mixed up. I'm not that familiar with DVD standard and which will fit for UNIX?? Please advice...thanks

Was this a video DVD or a data DVD?

I haven't ran into any problems with FreeBSD mounting DVDs and reading data off of them. I used `mount -t iso9660` to mount the DVDs without issue.
