I just burnt a bunch of files to a blank DVD+R Verbatim disc, using ImgBurn.
It all went fine and ImgBurn verified it.
But when I reload the disc (the same drive that just burned it), it just reads as empty, file system "RAW".
I put the disc in a Linux laptop and it read it as a data disc and I could access the files.
The file system set in ImgBurn was "ISO 9660 + UDF"
I'm using WinXP SP3.
Is it a driver problem, or should I choose different file system?
I want this to be readable by any Windows PC.
The disc and drive is are good, I've been using them to make DVD video for years with never a glitch.
And here is the log:

If I use ImgBurn "Read" mode, it reads the correct label and tells me its file sys is "1SO 9660, UDF (1.02)"
And ImgBurn can read the DVD back to an ISO, which I can mount and read on my PC. Windows sees the mounted ISO as a UDF CD.
But Windows Explorer still can't read the damn DVD.

I concur. By default the old version of Nero I use burns DVD Video discs as ISO9660+UDF 1.02 and Explorer has no trouble reading them (XP SP3). It uses ISO9660+Joilet for data discs by default, but either should be fine.
Maybe check one of your known good video DVDs to see if Windows can still see the files.
Here's something I didn't know. It might be worth a try.
If your Windows version supports the UDF version on the disc and the disc is a 'bridge disc' that contains ISO9660 or Joliet (for example DVD-ROM discs are typically bridge discs), try to open Windows Media Player while the disc is in the drive. Windows Media Player sends a particular type of file system request that can sometimes cause the disc to become visible through the CDFS file system.
I made another disc, this time I set the file system as "ISO 9660 + Joliet + UDF"
And now Windows can read it, identifying it as a UDF disc.
I don't know if the 1st one was just a one-off, maybe waste a disc later and try again.
-- PS even weirder: I put the 1st disc in to try the Windows Media Player trick, but before I could do that it just opened.
I had tried a dozen times yesterday, ejected, inserted, tried various disk tools.
Now it works.
Windows..... even when it works it drives you nuts.
