File name length - The joliet thing - Help


Recommended Posts

I have started scanning and filing photographs. The plan is to burn them all to CD.

The first attempt to burn a CD resulted in dire warnings about file length and 'no unique Joliet name'. Surely it will take more than 31 characters?

Which piece of the address counts as the 'file name'? If you count

C:Documents and SettingsBill BloggsMy DocumentsMy PicturesBloggs-Frederick&Hilda thats 80 characters.

Then the picture title with date,who,where,what event, serial number can be another 70 odd characters.

So i basically do not understand why I see long file names everywhere if they will not burn to CD.

What must I do,please?

The joliet limitation is 64 chars. What do you mean with file-length?

All these things do not count for filename. Filename is name + extension, so the name itself can have 61 chars (3 are used for extension).

I think they will be burned, maybe you have a try.

Thanks. I have started revising the titles to 61 characters or less and they seem to burn to CD without any trouble.

But the number of characters allowable is nowhere near enough so I will probably have to add captions with PhoTag or similar, which is a nuisance.
