Joliet is a Microsoft extension and profile of ISO 9660 (CD-ROM) format to support Unicode filenames. It is often compared to Rock Ridge and related extensions, though it works in an entirely different way.

[edit] Identification

Robust detection of Joliet requires iterating through all the volume descriptors, but in most cases, one of the following byte sequences will appear at offset 34904 or 36952:

  • 25 2f 40 (escape sequence for UCS-2 Level 1)
  • 25 2f 43 (UCS-2 Level 2)
  • 25 2f 45 (UCS-2 Level 3)
