How to format a cdfs partition

The CDFS file system, which stands for "Compact Disc File System," is used in CDs, particularly with open source operating systems. Formatting a CD that uses the CDFS file system is done in the same way as with a CD using the NTFS or any other file system. Formatting will erase the data on the CD and rearrange the data sectors, which will speed up the read/write (read-only for ISO 9660).
