Thread: Does Linux support the Mt. Rainier (MRW) file system?

  1. Does Linux support the Mt. Rainier (MRW) file system?

    Mt. Rainier is a file system for CD and DVD re-writeables which lets the
    medium be used like a giant floppy. Does Linux support this file system
    yet? if so, how?

    Thanks for your help.

    Actually Mt. Rainier is a way to remap bad blocks on CD-RW/DVD-RW
    media. UDF file system is the file system used, support is in the
    recent 2.6 and possibly 2.4 kernels.

    This file has more info:
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.11.8/Documentation/cdrom/packet-writing.txt

    You need the udftools package (pktsetup, mkudffs, cdrwtool). Download
    from http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-udf/

    The information I've seen is that no one has implemented Mt.Rainier
    yet, it really belongs in the firmware on the drive.

    I've used it, it works.
