    :mad: Does anyone have a clue why Nero is giving me a hard time? It's not letting me burn a cd that has a bunch of data files that I'VE BURNED ON NERO TEN TIMES BEFORE WITHOUT A PROBLEM (shouting intended-it's been a long day), saying they "don't have unique joliet names." I don't have a clue what they are talking about. I tried what someone else on the net suggested, which was to go to compilation info and make it iso level 2, and change to ascii, but it didn't do any good. It won't burn the files.

    Please help...

    That usually happens when the filenames are too long. If you pull files with the same name from different directories you can get that indication also. Nero usually tells you what files are not right. Look at some of the filenames that wonÂ’t record.

    well, I found two files with the same name, so I guess that was it; it burned fine after I eliminated the other. I guess I just wish I had gotten a message saying "you have two files with the same name; please change one or I can't burn your cd," instead of a message referring to things the average end-user won't know about and will have to research. I haven't gotten steamed over idiotic error messages ("integer divide by zero," "stack overflow," "routing/liquid, etc, etc,blah, blah") in a long time, but I guess they're still being generated by programmers who don't consider the end-user when writing error messages that will only be understood by people with a programming background.

    In any case, thanks for the response.
