Re: UDF for HP E5200ex Optical Disk Drive

Hello Mahmoud,

Your customer will need a software package that will write UDF disks under the operating systems you mention. I don't believe that many OS's support UDF natively (maybe Solaris and Linux)

One example is Optisys software ( but I guess there are many more packages out there. Most of the better packages will support Mainstream unix (HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, etc) as well as the M$ operating systems.

Hope this helps,
