View Full Version : Problem with AutoPlay and Win 2k

09-11-2002, 05:21 PM
I know this is probably a quick fix, but I have created a test CD to see about distibuting PDFs, web pages and viewing software.

I put the test together and burned to CD. It works on my machine but not on any of the Win 2k machines. When I browse the CD it seems to be in the 8.3 naming format. With this it appears not to want to find the files as is obvious since the pointers are not valid anymore.

Is there a fix to this? What have I done wrong.

BTW It works on XP just fine.

OK, so it is all systems that are having the problem. I have some web pages and when they copied over, the names changed on the CD to the 8.3 naming scheme. Others changed as well, like index.html changed to index~

If the files are OK in your distribution folder, then the problem is in how you burn the CD. Looks like some of your files are not 8.3 compliant, this is not a problem as long as you set the correct settings for your burning software. What software are you using to burn the CD?

I figured it out. The project settings in trying to create an Enhanced CD (music and Data) was set to 8.3 by default. It works when I change it to support long file names.
