The UDFtools package contains utilities for creating and mounting CD-RW disks with UDF file systems for both reading and writing. UDF files systems are used on both CD-RW media and on DVD. For more details of the UDF file system standard see: http://www.osta.org and http://www.ecma-international.org.

Now, as the root user:
provides facilities to manage CD-RW drives, including formatting new disks, setting the read and write speeds, etc.
cdrwtool -d /dev/scd0 -q
prepares a new CD-RW for use and formats it with a UDF file system.
is used to create new UDF file systems. It can be used on hard disks and CD-Rs as well as CD-RWs.
is used to establish and break down associations between the kernel packet driver and a physical drive.
pktsetup /dev/pktcdvd0 /dev/scd0 mount /dev/pktcdvd0 /mnt/cdrom -t udf -o rw,noatime
associates the physical device /dev/scd0 with the kernel packet driver /dev/pktcdvd0, then mounts a UDF formatted CD-RW for read/write access.
is used to check the integrity and correct errors on UDF filesystems.
is used to maintain a UDF filesystem.
contains functions used by the UDFtools programs.
