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.
