Re: Problems when writing DVDs with growisofs
...Am I right here ?:"When writing to a DVDRAM with growisofs I will
get a filesystem identical to that of a DVD: udf or iso9660."
Or you can make an empty placeholder on hard disk, losetup it, format to
your liking and burn it. I mean growisofs is actually a recording
program and formally is filesystem neutral. But it does treat mkisofs
output in special way, so you might get an impression that iso9660 is
what you "get"...
I heard, that using ext2 or such will kill DVDRAM soon, since there
are sectors (blocks? or whatever it is named ... sorry, I am not a
native English speaker...) constantly written to, so they will die
to soon since there max. write count has been reached.
And so would read-write mounted UDF. It's definitely good idea to mount
*either* with noatime, but otherwise I don't think that ext2 would "wear
out" the media faster than UDF. Even safer approach would be to keep
media mounted read-only for most of the time and re-mount read-write
when you actually intend to manipulate data. A.
