    I am getting an error window when I record a file to the cd. “Compatability Warning”
    “One or more paths in this cd project has exceeded max length allowed by the current file system. you may continue to burn the cd, but the files in these paths maynot be readable”

    What is the meaning of this msg? Is there any length restriction for file or path name? How to locate the prblrm file or path?

    Thanks Nathan

      The error is related to the error you get when a file name exceeds 64 characters. However, the path length cannot adjust just adjust a path name the same as a file name.

      Some of your paths must exceed 128 characters. In order to assure that you can access all of your files, you must rename / restructure the paths to shorten the name to the deepest nested folders.

      Roxio / Adaptec uses the “Joliet” standard (ISO 9660) for file names, paths, excetera.

      Per the standard, file names can be no longer than 64 characters.
      Path names cannot exceed 128 characters.

      Chech out this MSDN article for more details.

      http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/win98ddk/storage_5o8k.asp

      I am going to look for the entire standard just to have the complete reference available.

      “However, the path length cannot adjust just adjust a path name the same as a file name. ” Can u pl explain this.

      “Some of your paths must exceed 128 characters. In order to assure that you can access all of your files, you must rename / restructure the paths to shorten the name to the deepest nested folders.”

      Do u know of any utility to scan the disk to highlight the paths and files having longer names than the 64/128standard?

      Thanks Nathan nathanv@rogers.com
