I got Nero ( V.188.8.131.52 ) with my LG 32X writer. I did not care to upgrade it for the reasons below.
Most of my data files and folders names are more than 100 Characters (Some up to 170 characters ) in length since Windows allows up to 255 Characters long file names.
Problem is now I canâ€™t burn these files with Nero because they have long file names. There are literally thousands of files that I have named of more than 100 characters long and I can not change them now.
Also I would like to continue naming my files with long file names because that way I can spot the exact information I am looking for very easily.
Does anybody know a software that can burn really long file names preferably 128 characters or longer?
I know most people prefer Nero over easy cd creator or other software but I will be very happy with any software that can do a simple long file name data back up job.
I have asked this question to few people and they gave me a setting in Nero and I wasted enough cds not to mention time and frustration that two highly acclaimed burning software canâ€™t do a very basic task.
Easy cd creator 6 have a setting for UDF file format and it would burn some files with 80 or so characters but not all. I am using a dual boot Win 98 and Win XP (Pro) system and I donâ€™t know what UDF file system means and whether a cd recorded using UDF would save my data in a format that I can transfer to another hard disk if my hard disk ever crashed.
Finally somebody suggested that if I can find the answer anywhere on the net, this would be the place.
I would be very grateful if somebody can help.
