I doubt you can.  UDF is a format that is not natively supported by most operating systems.  Without the Reader, Windows doesn't know how to read the disk.

Windows XP has some sort of support to copy files to a cd, and I believe this is based on UDF, so you may be able to read disks  with that OS. You will still have to "mount" such a drive.

You can also close UDF CD's, that converts the file system to normal cdfs and then you should also be able to read the disk on any system which is cdfs compatible.

Linux can have direct UDF support as well.

Have you tried Isobuster?


Fantastic for CD/DVD recovery even when disc has errors. Full details can be read on their website, bit too much too copy and paste here. :)
