UDF recommended (over ISO9960/Joliet) for data file backups on DVD/BR?


Extraordinary Member
Occasionally I do some data file backups onto DVD and BlueRay medias.

My burning program offers some media file systems (even in combination):

ISO 9960 - Joliet - UDF

Which one should I use?

Is it correct that understanding the file system is a matter of the appropriate driver of the operating system and NOT a hardware matter of the DVD/BR burning device?

So all new DVD/BR burner offer UDF v2.60 burning as long as the OS offers the drivers.
Is this correct?

I heard UDF v2.60 ist the newest most advanced one.
As we use Windows 7 and Windows 7 CAN DO UDF we should prefer this?
