Comment(by gdisol at usa.net):

 dvd_reader.c (part of libdvdnav library) executes DVDOpenImageFile where
 the variable dvd->isImageFile gets 1 that means True. After this all the
 access will be done understanding that your DVD must be a UDF filesystem
 compatible. If not (a IS09660 DVD) you will have the DVDOpenFileUDF

 What I can't understand is why Libdvdnav is not trying to get the ISO9660
 access instead of UDF specially after the the O.S. mounted the DVD as a
 ISO9660 type and not UDF. The source code of Libdvdnav said that all
 block/char devices or files are being access using UDF ignoring IS0 ....

 So, all in all the question is : Libdvdnave will have real supoort of
 ISO9660 ?????
