I hope someone can help or explain this problem for me.
I have a DVD I made of my website. The website is constructed with every thing relative to the local system so that it will operate from the DVD.
My XP system has 2 DVD drives. One is a read only (E:) and the other is a R/W drive (F:). The problem is that on the read only drive ALL the directory and file names are in upper case and they are truncated to 8 characters, DOS files? For instance ThisIsanImage.jpg wil be THISISANI.JPG and index.html will be INDEX.HTML.
If I copy the files to my hard drive the result is the same. Of course the html involved will not function with the case of names and directories being changed.
However, if I put the DVD in my R/W drive the directory names and file names are correct and in mixed case with names longer than 8 characters. The website works fro this drive and copies to my hard drive ok. I have never run into this before.
Any one know what's going on. Do I have a setting some where in XP that I don't know about.
Your assistance is most welcome as I want to be able to send this DVD to other people, but I can't be confident that they won't have a problem.
