Subject  :  long filenames ?

I've recorded a cd in XP.
On this cd I can see files and dir with long filenames.

When I read this cd in warp 4 (without fixpak, and even with fixpak 15 apllied) I do not get these long names. They are all truncated on 8.3.

Warp 4 is on a HPFS partition.

What can be wrong? How can I get the long filenames? (I want to use genmac200).

The /W parameter is the one which is needed. The /W enables Joliet support in CDFS and allows you to see long filenames. Without /W, you will see only 8.3 truncated filenames.

Note that Joliet supports filenames up to 64 characters long. If you have super long long long ... filenames then Joliet will not save you.

/W does the job !
