This is just a list to understand what File Systems are put on a CD or DVD when a 
write application masters the data (not just makes a copy of ... 
because then no new File System is created, the old one is just copied).

'Classical' data mastering applications (such as Easy CD Creator, Nero, WinOnCD, ...) put on CD :

ISO9660 Almost always (which is a good idea for max. compatibility with other systems)
Joliet     Almost always (long file names ; not used on VCD (exceptions prove the rule))
UDF       Hardly ever (Nero offers the option to use it anyway)

'Classical' data mastering applications (such as Easy CD Creator, Nero, WinOnCD, ...) put on DVD :

ISO9660  Almost always (which is a good idea for max. compatibility with other systems)
Joliet      Almost always (long file names ; not used on Video DVD (exceptions prove the rule))
               Some versions of Creator seem to forget this File System which results in no long File Names 
               under Windows NT4 and Windows 95.  If UDF is present, IsoBuster comes to the rescue !
UDF        Almost always (This File System is mandatory on DVD) 
               Some mastering applications seem to forget this (e.g. Nero) although not a problem for Windows.

Packet writing software on CD and DVD (e.g. Direct CD, InCD, B's gold, DLA, Packet CD, ABCD, ...) 

UDF         ALWAYS (This File System allows to add / delete / change files) 
               Some or most applications reserve room to be able to convert the UDF file System to another File System
               e.g. Iso and Joliet on eject or when the CD / DVD is full.
