Well, you mean more like a disk than a CD-RW, right?

No. UDF has nothing to do with ISO 9660. From the specs available
at http://www.osta.org/ ...
NOTE: The disc may also include the ISO 9660 file system. If the disc
contains both UDF and ISO 9660 file systems it shall be know as a
"UDF Bridge" disc. This "UDF Bridge" disc will allow playing DVD-ROM
media in computers, which may inly support ISO 9660. As UDF computer
implementations are provided, the need for ISO 9660 will disappear,
and future disks should contain only UDF.
