UDF Media Reader

UDF Media Reader reads disks created by packet-writing programs like DirectCD. Mac OS X 10.0 through 10.4.5 mounts UDF+VAT disks using their ISO 9660 information, but a bug causes it to silently truncate the beginning of files which cross packet gaps. UDF Media Reader is a Cocoa program that analyzes a UDF disk, presents its contents as a directory tree, and allows the user to copy all or part of the disk's contents to the host filesystem. It has been tested with CD-Rs created by DirectCD on Windows 9x. It will probably work with CD-Rs created by InCD, and it might work with Sony Mavica CD-Rs.

    Release Notes: This release has been recompiled for OS X 10.5+ to create an Intel binary, since OS X Lion will not be able to run PowerPC binaries. It makes minor changes to the source to compile on little-endian Intel processors.

    Release Notes: This release adds drag-and-drop to Desktop or Finder windows and a no-copy flag to block copying of individual files or directories.

    Release Notes: The ability to open mounted ISO files was added. An automatic scan of each disk as it is loaded was added to determine if it is a problem UDF disk. A mount point (the /Volumes name) and the auto-scan result were added to the initial disk menu. Directory contents are sorted by name.
