    How to convert DVD-RW from UDF format to NTFS?


    Hi,

    I have a DVD-RW which is in UDF format. I want to convert it to NTFS so i can make a bootable windows 8 DVD.

    Please advise.

    If you'll download your Windows 8.1 from here it will create either and Bootable DVD or USB install media. You can also download the ISO.
    As far as I know Windows 8.1 is UEFI and I know that we create UEFI bootable USB to clean install, FAT32, UEFI doesn't seem to recognize NTFS boot partition.

    As to your question I don't believe you can convert a DVD format, Well a quick goggle search show me to be incorrect in that statement as it seem to be a solved issue here

    Dump the DVD-RW and use a DVD+R. The rewritable DVDs are just not worth the effort in my opinion.

    Download the Windows.iso file.
    Right click Windows.iso file > Burn disc image.

    Optical Discs are not in NTFS. The ISO file contains the information for making a Bootable disc.

    Don't just burn the ISO file itself to the Disc that won't work.

    I use DVD+RW or DVD+R for data, the - variants for video.
