Long filename question on burning CD


Hi folks,

Debian-unstable

Most filenames saved exceed 8 characters. After burning on CD they can be read comfortable on the same OS as well as other Lunux/Unix boxes. The problem comes while reading the same CD on Window Explorer, XP, ME, etc. The filename can't read clearly because all of them changed to 8 character max, such as ~01, ~02, etc. Is there any solution on burning CD allowing the long filename (exceeding 8 characters) can be read clearly on Windows identical to their name read on Linux/Unix

Kindly advise.

TIA

B.R.

And I'm glad you didn't complain about the brevity ;)
