nero and 31 characters only?

Postby mrk1283 on Sat Nov 15, 2003 8:31 pm

using 6.0.0.23 and noticed that today all my mp3 backup cdr's filenames have been bass turd ised!!!

I mean I name my songs a particular way, "artisst - [album] - track number - track name", this usually often exceeds 31 characters and enro only supports max 31 character filenames, what puzzles me is windows cd burning burns them with any character length just fine but nero only supports 31? I prefer using nero though a sits easier to add updated files etc and im getting a dvd rw soon so will have to use it

Any ideas?

Nero supports up to 64 characters.
make sure Joliet is checked in the ISO tab of the compilation properties.

for more than 64 you'll have to give up Nero.
yeah, Nero sucks in this department.
if you search the forum for "long file names" you'll find some posts of mine (and others) about this issue.

try using burnatonce http://www.burnatonce.com. it has ISO9960:1999 that supports much longer filenames (can't remember now exactly how long, approx 200 chars)

Actually, Nero 5.5 had the limit of 64 characters, but you had to relax the ISO 9660 restrictions.

With the release of Nero 6, we allow you to relax the ISO 9660 Restrictions even more, and you can get up to 108 characters.

And if your using Windows to write to CDRW media, then you are doing packet writing, and the UDF format does not have the ISO 9660 limitations. And InCD 4 does not have these limitations either as it also is a packet writing software.

I would use the xp one for packet writing as it means i can write to the disc again to add more data later on BUT when having a folder with 400 mp3's it does take ages to write to the virtual image then burn whereas nero just gets on with it and now ive sorted the character thing out, set joilet on and i can use more than 64 characters now!

please clarify.
in the Compilation Info window, ISO tab, setting ISO Level 2, ISO 9660 Character set and checking Joliet - isn't that enough for 64 chars (without checking any of the 3 Relax ISO Restrictions checkboxes)?

are you saying that the built-in Windows XP burning engine is actually a packet-writing program??? (didn't know that!)

For Nero 5.5 that is all that is needed to allow up to 64, as Joliet format sets the limit to 64 characters.

But what most customers do not realize is that if they do not releax the 255 Character limit, then they may not be able to get their full 64 characters even with Joliet enabled. So you really should relax the ISO 9660 restrictions to ensure you can get the full 64 characters for your file names.
