I need a VBS Script to convert long file names to and from short file names (backup and restore long file names)

Since ISO and UDF File Systems do not support as much characters as NTFS, I need a VBS Script to convert long file names to and from short file names (backup and restore long file names); maybe creating an external text file to store long file names, then renaming files and folders to a short a name (backup). To restore, open text file which stores long files and folders names, then renamig them from the short name to the long name. It must be recursive (rename all files, folders and subfolders inside a main folder I specify). The idea is to burn CD's/DVD's with short names (long names backuped), and restore long files and folders names after copying them from CD/DVD to HDD.
