Are file name on CDRs uses Unicode ?
Or encoded in localized encoding method ?
My Windows version allow DBCS file name. (Big-5 Chinese) Thus the illegal characters /?*\ does sometimes get used. However, as I believe the file name are actually stored in Unicode on HD, there is no problem at all.
But, a lot of program is doing a quick check and will ban the use of those characters, Nero is one of them, so when you try to rename the file with such characters, Nero will pop up with an error. The very same filename is accepted with a drag from the file browser, though.
P.S. For those who don't know how DBCS works, here is a quick note:
Normal characters are 7 bit only, when it has a high bit on (i.e. >127) it is consider as a lead in, so should be treated as a 2-byte character, the next byte will be taken to combine with the first character to form a character. The 2nd byte uses all available code, so ?/*\ are included.
