IJolietDiscMaster/IStorage filename length problem.

Posted on 2004-10-07

I am using IJolietDiscMaster::AddData(IStorage* pStorage,  long lFileOverwrite) to add files to a staged image file, to burn to CD.  To add files to the storage I use IStorage::CreateStream(..).

Now the IJoliet specs say I can have filename up to 64 characters long, but when adding files through IStorage::CreateStream(..) I can only use filenames with a max length of 31 characters as that is the limit set by IStorage::CreateStream(..).

Does anyone know a way around the 31 character limitation of IStorage::CreateStream(..)?
Or does anyone know of any other CD mastering API's/interfaces that are available?
I am using the Microsoft SDK for the IMAPI interfaces at the moment, and I believe there is others by Nero, etc available.  Any advice?

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks

The NeroAPI can do what the UI implies - including the settigs to even overcome the Joliet file name length limitations.

I have gotting help from Alex Feinman who has written a similar tool (http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm).  As a work around, I am now using the IShellFolder interfaces to get a storage pointer to the folder.  This mean I am not adding files one at a time, but I don't need that functionallity yet.

Thank you Alex and jkr for your help.

  HRESULT hr;
  IStorage * pStorage = NULL;
  LPITEMIDLIST pidl = NULL;
  IShellFolder * pFolder;
  IMalloc * pIMalloc;

  hr = SHGetMalloc(&pIMalloc);
  hr = SHGetDesktopFolder(&pFolder);
  hr = pFolder->ParseDisplayName(NULL, NULL, wszSourceFilename, NULL, &pidl, NULL);
 
  hr = pFolder->BindToStorage(pidl, NULL, IID_IStorage, (void**)&pStorage);
 
  pIMalloc->Free((void*)pidl);
  pFolder->Release();

  // add the storage to the staged image file
  hr = m_joliet->AddData(pStorage, bOverwriteExisting);
