[X] cdbxpcmd: names with more than 16 characters

It seems one can't create a CD/ISO with a title with more than 16 characters using the commandline tool:


cdbxpcmd --burn-data -folder[\]:foo -iso:c:\isos\bar.iso -name:12345678901234567

An error (80040277) occured while executing the command: Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040277

I never had problems doing so using the UI.

Is this a restriction I should generally be aware of, or an error in the command line tool?

OK, thanks. I'll keep an eye on this thread, if you get around to having a look at it I'd appreciate if you'd let me know.

Thanks. Question remains though why that limitation isn't enforced in the UI version of the tool, I can create and mount ISOs with 20 characters without any problems.

Ah. That's a bit at odds with http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joliet_%28file_system%29 which claims that the volume name is always UTF-16 and only allows 16 characters as well. Doesn't show a source for that, and I certainly can have volumes with more than 16 chars, so they seem to be missing something.

Anyway, new questions/suggestions:

1) It appears the GUI version defaults to create ISO 9660/Joliet/UDF. Shouldn't cdbxpcmd do so, too (and maybe expose parameters to set the file systems to use)?

2) Menu -> File -> Options -> Data options notes: "Remember that labels will be truncated to 16 characters" (4.3.8.2568). That's a bit misleading if it depends on the file systems used.

3) Would it make sense to add the volume label restriction to the list in Menu -> File System?

Maybe it's ISO 9660 then that allows 32 chars.

Nope, the command line version does not have this capability at all (yet).

2) Menu -> File -> Options -> Data options notes: "Remember that labels will be truncated to 16 characters" (4.3.8.2568). That's a bit misleading if it depends on the file systems used.

Assuming the worst case scenario seems fine enough for me.

Maybe, though I did not consider the volume name as that important yet.
