Hello Bernt :-) Thank you, but 4GB filesize limit of ISO9660 this is
not quite my problem (although some years ago I have proposed solution
that you have mentioned because cdrtools was in alpha stage and
FreeBSD did use cdrtools from 2004 for very long time and so it was
missing the -udf -iso-level 3 switches etc etc) :-)

My problem is that whole data stored on the BluRay disk has 4GB.
growisofs recognise bluray disk and formats it to 25GB but still it
only records 4GB of image... Maybe someone had this problem too? Does
anyone use growisofs to burn BluRay disks?

Best regards :-)
