Data DVD stripped to 8.3 file names without warning

Recommended Posts

I've burned a few DVD+RW, and most were fine. The last one I did had folders, and it had some problems (I will say the folder depth was a few levels and there were a lot of files). All the files names where stripped down to eight characters with a three letter extension. There was no warning or error message. It just lost the rest of each file name.

OS: 98se

CPU: 1.7 GHz

RAM: 256 Mbs

Disk: FujiFilm DVD+WR

Drive: Generic (Lite-On DVD+WR LDW-401s)

Format: Joliet

Version: 3.0.113

I know what the first people will say is: Update. Already done. I'm ereasing the disk now, and will re-burn. I won't be completely finished for awhile, so I'm just posting this now. I'm going to try a few things too see if I can pin-point the problem.

FYI, I also had the same problem, except I was burning CD-RWs using 3.0.113. Upgraded to 3.0.115 and the problem was resolved.
