Symlinks for Windows?
Recently, after trying to burn an MPEG file to a DVD+RW, Nero indicated in the status bar that its name was too long for Joliet spec, so I duly went over and renamed it. What I hadn't realised is that Nero also decided to do "trimming" of its own, lopping even more off the name, including the .mpg extension. :rolleyes:
So, now PowerDVD won't play the file because as it doesn't have an extension it can't work out what it is. Naturally, during my time installing Linux a few weeks ago I learned of the power of symlinks, but they seem to enjoy limited support in Windows (Folder symlinking is supported in modern NTFS, but apparently not files).
Does anyone know of a way I can perhaps "take over" the DVD drive's file system and make Windows believe that a file on the disc has a different name to what it actually has? Th easiest solution would be to copy it back to HDD and rename it, but I'm low on disk space at the mo. :o
