Summary:
What are the default UNIX file permisions when writing an ISO 9660 disc with Rock Ridge Extensions using GEAR PRO Mastering Edition?


Discussion:
The default permisions depend in part on if the file is executable in Windows (*.exe and *.bat) or not and if the file is read only in Windows or not

  • If a file is executable in Windows, than it will have the executable bits set in the Rock Ridge file permissions
  • If a file is read only in Windows, than it will not have the read bits set in the Rock Ridge file permissions


Example:
You write a read only file called gearpro.exe to an ISO 9660 disc with Rock Ridge Extensions

  • If the disc is mounted as a Rock Ridge disc on a UNIX system the attributes of the file will be: -r-xr-xr-x
  • If the read only attribute was not set in Windows, the permissions would be: -rwxrwxrwx
  • If you write a read only file called readme.txt to an ISO 9660 disc with Rock Ridge Extensions, than the permissions seen on a UNIX system would be: -r--r--r--
  • If the read only attribute was not set, then the permissions would be: -rw-rw-rw-
