Dvd display 8 characters on XP Tags: Dvd Windows XP Linux Last response: June 8, 2010 4:55 PM in Windows XP Share GeorgeLiu June 8, 2010 1:56:52 PM Hello, I used mkisofs and then growisofs to burn a DVD in Linux. The DVD content was normal in Linux. However, when the DVD was displayed on Windows XP, it only displays 8 characters for every directory or file name.

Using option -iso-level 4 in mkisofs seems making Windows happy. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows XP>Dvd display 8 characters on XP> Related ressources: ForumCan not delete a file with 8 bit characters in the name ForumCan't display more than 8 characters ForumWhy no non-keyboard characters ?
