Is it possible to burn an UDF DVD with Linux? ISO9660 won't allow 2Gb+ files.

Install in Synaptic Package Manager:

yes. k3b will automatically select UDF if needed, assuming you have the needed packages installed.

K3b really does burn UDF. But I got a feeling it mangles up my files!
My DVD's files didn't pass the cmp check!
Well some bytes mangled in Video file would make few glitches, but in binary file a single missing bit would produce different machine code. Scary!
Of course I can boot into Windows, It just isn't that convenient to reboot when DVD's need to be burnt.
EDIT: Well I tried to burn with very low speeds. Seems OK, now. Somehow Nero and Alcohol had better dynamic speed correction! Maybe I should mention this in some K3b dev forums? (though I reckon it wouldn't help much)

I have had this speed problem with DVDs,
now I only use "auto" when I burn DVDs, never fails.

Well 'Auto' was the one what failed me the first time!
I had to put 6x
But I've tried only once. Gotta do more tests.
And have to make a habit to cmp files after burn, just in case.

Hmm... I have problems reading k3b burned UDF disks in XP.
I just have one UDF disk, so I don't know if this applies generally.
