    (WHEN I NAMED THE FOLDER ON THE BURNT CD IT HAD THE CHARACTER (>) IN IT, AND THIS HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH JOLIET NAMING OF WHAT THE CD BURNS DISCS)



    Hi, I've got Nero and I reformatted my HHD, and so I had to back up all my files/media. I burnt 3 cd's with each of them containing Videos. The problem, I'm having is only with these 3 Video ones...I burnt other video ones but they turned out fine.

    well these 3 won't let me get into the folder in which the video files are in on the cds. I checked the properties and the size is 650Mb, so i know that they're on there. I tried copying the folder to the HHD...but It won't let me do it... I also tried copying the disc through Nero, and the copied one also had teh same problem.

    I'm guessing that, when I did burn these 3 cd's I made a the folder from within Nero...where it says drag and drop....cause all the other cds I made the folder on teh HHD and just placed that folder in the Burning Program.

    Can someone please Help.....it about 1.5Gigs for the 3 Cd's and I don't want to spend time re-downloading them....

    Darc

    Try using the ren command from dos to rename and replace the files into a directory on your hard drive.. There are some filenames that you cannot use in windows, but sometimes you can fool the computer into moving and/or renaming them by useing wildcards and the command xcopy or ren.

    Ren *.avi c:\temp\files\
