I'm disappointed that FreeBSD mount_udf doesn't support this disc.
to those trying:
the solution is to use udfclient and browse that way. Alternatively there is
a refuse package that makes UDFclient into a FS to mount.
Do not be deterred by the complicated first-level directory :
97505d80MS UDFBridge:UDF Volume:GRC1CULXFRER_EN_DVD:GRC1CULXFRER_EN_#503F
Yes, there are spaces in it, you'll want to quote it to access it properly.
