Filenames


Hi, I burnt a disc using K3B in Linux, which when mounted using iso9660 file system works perfeclty and displays the full filenames i.e" My File - Date - 2005.file". However when I put this disc in my windows XP machine it only displays short filenames i.e. "MY_FIL.FILE".
Does anyone know what is cuasing this and how I can remedy the problem?

thanks.

To make the filenames display nicely in Windows you need to burn the CD with the Joliet extensions (can be turned on in the K3B burn dialog).

Not that I know of. Except of course re-burning.
