Long File Names

I created a CD on Windows, which had some long file names, such as myjava.java & myjava.class. When I looked at the CD on windows and on dos (with a dir command) the names where correct. Then I took the CD to a Solaris system, and did a volcheck. An ls /cdrom/cdrom0 showed short names only. myjava.class was changed to myjav~1.cla. The CD was created using joliet and not ISO.... What can I do to correct this problem?

I see the same problem before, it is something to do with your CD burner software, some of them are working fine. (eg, nero version 5?, but you need to change the filesystem before burnning your CD. Adaptec Easy CD Creator has the same problem, I have tried up to version 5).

If you use gzip to compress all your file or make a tar ball for all your file, and them burn the file to the CD, you'll be ok.

or in Solaris

mkhybrid to make an ISO image file then burn the image to CD.

(You need to install mkhybrid if you don't have a copy)

There is configurationmenu ( or should be) in the burning software where you can choose "JOLIET" or "ISO9660"
Go with the ISO and it should be OK

For a little background here....  There are standards for doing long filenames on CD's, but Windows, in its infinite monoplistic wisdom, chooses to ignore them in many cases.
