    Post Joliet


    I have a stack of CD's that I have thousands of megs of backed up photos and videos. When I was burning these with K3B, I was asked to shorten the filenames. By disabling Joliet, K3B let me continue and burn the CD's with the file names the way they were. Now, I have a stack of archives that nothing can access. I can load the discs to see the files listed, but any attempt to open or copy will fail.

    Any help??

    just a thought:
    maybe the standard cd filesystem iso96whatever must contain a joilet.
    so couldn't you just mount it as something else?

    just thinking loudly... good luck!

    Any recommendations as to what file system to attempt to mount? And with what parameters?

    -t iso9660, it should work on linux.

    Windows is not able to handle these discs, I think, and probably some dvd standaloen players will have problems as well. I can't confirm it since it's been years since I don't use windows for other then laboral purposes.

    the funny thing is that iso9660 WITHOUT joilet extension in fact is the one that can't handle long file names. so what you had burnt there is...non existing

    i think k3b did this to your cd!

    Use Linux to read the files. When doing that, you can shorten your names and burn a Windows-compatible CD.
