It doesn't install during PnP like a driver. An addon would be more appropriate I think. I was going to make an addon for it myself, but the only compute I've ever encountered that would benefit from it is my wife's laptop (that has a Bluray burner).

She hasn't had any obvious problems, but I just don't quite trust it for some reason. If I could spend a bit more time day to day looking for anomolies, perhaps it would change my mind.

RS is right: a UDF support driver is like a exFAT support driver: it's a file system driver, which is not installed in the same way a hardware driver is.

Windows has built-in support for UDF through udfs.sys. XP supports UDF up to 2.0. Vista has support for for UDF up to 2.6. I'm generally wary of third-party file system drivers, since file systems really should be the purview of the OS. How would this Toshiba driver interact w/ XP's pre-2.5 UDF support? Does Toshiba have any custom "extensions" to UDF that this driver would support? &c. Although I generally cringe at the idea of arbitrarily backporting Windows components, I wonder if installing the Vista udfs.sys in XP would work... (the latest udfs.sys, along with a .cat that signs it, is available here, if anyone wants to be a guinea pig)
My addons: CmdOpen - HashCheck - Notepad2 - MS Runtimes - DirectX

Into the breach, meatbags!

're probably right, but I managed to integrate successfully through nLite. The reason why I'm looking for this addon, because i dont like to use nLite for my installations.

Toshiba isn't only driver, i saw aslo Panasonic BD UDF2.5/UDF2.6 (Read/Write) Driver v.5.3.0.1

which have support for Windows 2000/XP/XPx64/Vista/Vistax64, and it's hacked and works flawlessy without Panasonic BD drive.

I hate to say this, mainly due to the expense, but IMO the best way to access BD media under Windows XP is to use AnyDVD HD which contains it's own UDF handler.

I have successfully made installer that can be installed at T13, because driver need to restart to start working.
