How can I burn really long filenames to a CD?
One of my clients works for a law firm. They put case data in .rar files with 100+ character filenames. Those filenames need to be that long because they contain case-identifying information that they use when searching their database of .rar files. However, they also burn these .rar files to CD, but the filenames get broken because they are too long.
I told my client to put the files in the base directory of the CD, to shorten the path name. What else can I tell him? What other settings can be changed to allow the longest possible filename? Is there software that can achieve this more effectively than Nero?
P.S. Would it help if I had my client burn these files to DVD instead?
