I wasted 6 DVD’s on this… All I want to do is burn a dvd and keep all the file names intact (and not have them cut short or changed!). My only alternative would be to zip everything up, but I have 10 gigs worth of stuff and that would take forever, and be a pain when I was looking for certain files. I’m attempting to copy all my old stuff to dvds before I wipe the HD and reinstall windows… I have a crappy HP dvd300i and Nero 5.
Change the filesystem type? The limit is like 255 characters in Joliet.
The Joilet limit in Nero 5 was 64 characters… It’s since been extended as of sometime in 6 (6.3, maybe?). In any case, 6.6 is able to relax the standards to 255 characters, why not upgrade?
Oh hrm. Yeah ok just upgrade to Nero 6.
I’m running the latest Nero 6.6
It could not handle file names over 97 characters.
The setting was ISO 9660 + Joliet.
When changed to ISO 9660:1999 which I think are 255 character max, it fixed 99.999% of the problems.
It did have 2 files the other day, that gave an error, but might have been a bad character in the name.
I didn’t write the error down, but this error was during the burn so it might not have been a too long error.
The file too long error was at the start, and you could abort the burn.
