    Hi Guys,

    I'm trying to transfer some files from my Win2K box and burn them on CD on my W98 box. Having a bit of a problem in that a number of the filenames are too long and are causing an error that prevents the files from being written.
    Does anyone know of a program that can automatically shorten filenames? I have just over 30,000 files so doing it manually isn't really an option.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are using NERO, it will do it for you.
