this problem i am having seems to be specific to ImgBurn burned discs in XBMC.
i have tried burning many discs, using many file system combinations (including matching the settings in Nero with ImgBurn,) and the result is always the same. discs burned with ImgBurn, viewed in XBMC, display with the the file names truncated.
as i tried to display in my title, the file names will be displayed in all uppercase / shortened. if there are multiple folders that start with the same characters as well it will display with a 1, 2, 3, etc. added to the end.
file names appear normal in Windows & on my 360 on all discs.
(Nero burned discs display file names correctly in XBMC if that wasn't implied also...)
