10.4: UDF DVD and Sony CD Mavica
Authored by: seonline on Aug 18, '05 06:31:58PM

I have a Sony CD Mavica and I just tried it...and it totally works. I had to put the cd in that special cd attachment ring so I could put it in my iBook but it mounted and I could see all the files. [By the way this is a finalized disc. I'll try and see if it works without finalizing the disc.]

10.4: UDF DVD and Sony CD Mavica MVC CD-1000
Authored by: witzelwords on Jun 03, '06 07:21:56PM

How do I mount Mavica MVC CD-1000 Discs on Mac OS X?

Disable Apple's UDF support by simply dragging out a folder called "udf.fs" located in System/Library/Filesystems.

You can do this without even having to re-boot. If the folder is in there along with SAI_udf.fs, (from ReadDVD), the disc will not mount - disk utility can see it - but it will not mount. Now all you do is eject the cd and take out the folder 'udf.fs' and then re-insert the CD - it mounts.

If you eject the CD and put that folder back the CD will once again not read. No re-booting needed at all to test. Tried his on OS X 10.3.9 and it works great. Tried all other UDF tips and none worked.
