    CDR burning Software without a 64char filename limit!

    Help!

    Just purchased a new burner and I am having a bit of trouble with CDR software. My last burner was SCSI and worked fine with CDRWIN, which had the advantage that when I wanted to burn a data cd of say mp3's with filename lengths greater than 64 chars it was fine.

    Now with my new LG 24X IDE burner, CDRWIN doesn't work with it. And using the supplied Easy CD Creator (by Roxxo) I am getting stuck by not being able to burn past the 64char filename limit.

    Does anyone know of a burning package that will get past this problem. I dont care if the CD's aint 100% standard if that is the problem, if they read on a windows 98/2000 PC that will be fine by me....

    Did you update your ASPI drivers?

    What version of CDR-Win do you have?
    If it ain't broken, open it to see what makes it "tick".

    i have CDRWin 3.8A...... my burner is not listed as supported by the latest build. ASPI wont make a difference for a IDE burner will it?

    IDE CDRWs still go through ASPI.

    somewhat on topic..

    back in the good old days when i had access to a haft decent news server i burnt alot of DiVx movies.
    Nero cut down the file names of movies in 2 parts (when there where more then 64 characters) giving me two files with identical names and but different sizes... (so the data isn't lost)
    opening either one opens the second part always, hence no movie.

    Is there Anyway of restoring the original file names/ changing the names so i can watch the first half and the second haft?

    Thanks

    thanks guys, solved the problem... did some research..

    using NTI CD Maker 2000 Pro, works great with my LG CDRW burner I just needed to download after install the latest CDRW database from the NTI website. Good system this, they update their CDRW support database more often than the program itself, so you just drop the 300K database file into the program directory and straight away my burner was found.... great! It was a GCE-2048B burner BTW (i think, not at home at the moment to check 100%)


    Anyway, back to the program, NTI CD Maker supports the usualy ISO9600 (8 char/3 char), Joiliet (64 Char Max) and a format that only a few programs support (CDRWin being another one) Roxxio which supports 128chars per filename! great!

    its a nice program too, works great with my setup anyway... and 128char filenames means I dont havto truncate any of my mp3 filename now when backing up to CDR's which is cool...

    PaulzY, you may wanna give NTI a shot....
