Nero Setting Question

Postby Aceyalone on Fri Feb 07, 2003 7:18 pm

I've been using Nero ver. 5.0.0.9 for the past few years (or since whenever it came out). Anyways today I upgraded to the lastest version of Nero (cause I bought a new burner) and I had a question about one of the settings under the "ISO" tab in the "New Compilation" window.

What exactely does the "Do not add the ';1'ISO file version extension" checkbox do?

I looked in the help but couldn't find anything about. It wasn't in the previous version of Nero I was using.

Thanks.

My Guess

Well Aceyalone (interesting handle),

Not really sure - can speculate. Think it has to do with truncating (long) file names to the old DOS standard of 8 + 3. Even if I do know, probably can't explain it well. Just checked my Nero and it is there too.

Anyway, cfitz will be along soon. He'll know, and explain it properly.

Specutively yours,

The ISO 9660 standard requires that all filenames end with a semicolon followed by a file version number. Many operating systems don't have any problem with this requirement and simply hide the semicolon and version number from the user. For example, Windows doesn't display them even though they are there. However, the semicolon causes problems for some operating systems such as unix, where the semicolon is a reserved character used as a command line delimiter. To accomodate situations where a semicolon and version number cause problems, Nero allows you to violate the ISO 9660 standard and omit the two.

In your situation, you can just leave the check-box unchecked and continue to burn as you always have. Don't worry about it. :wink:

Well now, Aceyalone, that didn't take long for cfitz to drop bye, did it?

And I wasn't even close!

Over and out,
