NLS, Filenames on CD/DVD

I have a few CDs and DVDs and for some reason only 8 characters out of the full x character names are being displayed in either the terminal or in the file managers.

I have the following built into the kernel[*]

* Codepage 437 (usa and Canada)
* NLS ISO 8850-1 ( LATIN 1: Western European Languages)
* NLS ISO 8859-15 (Latin 9: Western European languages with euro)

* iso8859-1 = Default NLS Option

what else needs to be done?

should the Default NLS option be set to something different?


btw: this is a 2.6.19 kernel
