    Hello,

    I have 90 % of my files with long file names ( 200 To 255 Characters ).

    In total I have over 200,000 files.

    UDF format is the only one that will let me use more than 232 character file names.

    I have all my data backed up on several DVDs using Sonic DVD writer in UDF format.

    Now windows 7 will not read any of those DVDs.

    It also won't allow to install the part of Sonic module called " Direct To Disk " which reads & writes UDF format data on DVDs.

    I need help really bad.

    Is there a solution ?

    Thans in advance.

    Sounds like Limewire Porn names to me.

    Win7 reads the UDF file system fine. Your disks were probably written in an older format that is not compatible with 7.
