Does Vista have native support for UDF (base don ISO/IEC 133460)?

  1. I purchased an HP notebook on 31 May 2008.
    OS is Vista Premium.

    Today, I tried using DVD drive for first time.
    Drive will not record CD-RW, but is supposed to be able to read them.

    Created a CD-R and a CD-RW on another system.

    No problem reading the CD-R in the DVD drive.
    Using DVD-R media, was able to write on the DVD via Windows.

    When I try to read the CD-RW, Roxio pops up and asks to install some Easy
    Write critter.
    After doing so, when I try to see the files on the drive, all I see is the
    UUReader stuff, not the actual files.

    This is essentially the same issue I saw back with Win 98 and Easy Creator

    How do I see the files on the CD-RW?

    The software is the pre-installed Roxio Creator.
    Do not know the version.
    I'm creating Recovery DVDs now so I do not want to check the version until
    after the recovery DVDs have been created.

    I thought that Vista had built-in software for reading UDF???
