WIN95 RAP//CD problem with long filenames

I just installed WIN95 on my system over an existing version of DOS 6.2. Windows recognized my external CD-rom at the parallel port properly (it's a RAP//CD from Noveca with a TEAC 6X drive in it), but the drive cannot access directories with long filenames.
The directories appear in Explorer, but they are cut to 8 characters (but without the "~" like under DOS) and I can't get in them (Windows says that the vurrent directory has been moved). I've already tried:
1. removing the old driver and scanning for new hardware (windows didn't recognize the drive at all)
2. searching for a special win95 driver (novecas site was not accessible for weeks.
If i put the drive in my computer, everything works fine, because I have a win95 driver from TEAC, but i cannot leave it there, because I also need it for my notebook, so please help me ... Thanks a lot ...

See Q158417 on MSKB (Microsoft Knowlege Base). I quote one sentence: "CD-ROM drives that use real-mode drivers cannot view long file names".
I recommend you do everything possible to find and install the 32 bit driver.Yoram.
