Using DVD-ROM Devices
The Solaris 8 Operating Environment includes support for the Universal Disk Format (UDFS) file system, which is the industry-standard format for storing information on the optical media technology called DVD (Digital Versatile Disc or Digital Video Disc).
UDFS is provided as dynamically loadable 32-bit and 64-bit modules, with system administration commands that you can use to create, mount, and check the file system on both SPARC and IA platforms. The Solaris UDFS works with supported ATAPI and SCSI DVD drives, CD-ROM devices, and disk and diskette drives. In addition, the Solaris UDFS is fully compliant with the UDF 1.50 specification. See "Disk-Based File Systems" on page 182 for more information.
Hardware and Software Requirements
The UDF file system requires the following components.
UDF Compatibility Issues
This first Solaris UDF file system implementation provides support for industry-standard read-write UDF version 1.50 and fully internationalized file system commands.
Connecting a DVD-ROM Device
Use the following steps to connect a DVD-ROM device.
Accessing Files on a DVD-ROM Device
Use the following steps to access files on a DVD-ROM device.
NOTE. If a system has both a CD-ROM and a DVD-ROM device, the CD-ROM might be named /cdrom/cdrom0 and the DVD-ROM might be named /cdrom/cdrom1. If the system has only a DVD-ROM device, try using /cdrom/cdrom0.
$ ls /cdrom/cdrom1 Copyright install.sh product.gz $
Automatic display with the CDE file manager is not yet implemented. You can use all other CDE file manager functions, such as drag and drop for copying and imagetool features.
Displaying UDF File System Parameters
Use the -F udfs and -m options of the mkfs command to display UDF file system parameters.
Creating a UDF File System
Use the -F udfs option of the mkfs command to create a UDF file system.
Determining Whether a File System Is a UDF File System
Use the fstyp command to determine whether a file system is a UDF file system.
Checking a UDF File System
Use the -F udfs option of the fsck command to check the integrity of a UDF file system.
Mounting a UDF File System
Use the -F udfs option of the mount command to mount UDF file systems.
Unmounting a UDF File System
Use the umount command to unmount UDF file systems.
Labeling a Device with a UDF File System and Volume Name
Use the -F udfs option of the labelit command to create a file system and volume name for a UDF file system.
