Description Ralf Ertzinger 2006-10-27 08:00:48 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a data DVD which has both filesystems on it - UDF and ISO9660. Reading a
specific file while the DVD is mounted as UDF just results in a bunch of NUL
bytes. Reading the same file while the DVD is mounted as ISO9660 results in
usable data.

$ mount | grep hdc

Comment 1 Ralf Ertzinger 2006-10-27 11:02:37 UTC
Other files from the same DVD read fine with UDF and ISO9660, btw.

Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2007-04-27 20:56:08 UTC
This may be due to a 1GB size limitation in the UDF driver.

Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2007-09-12 17:58:42 UTC
That 1GB file size limit should be lifted on latest kernels - is this still an


Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 18:32:58 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
