I am using Roxio Creator 9 / DE and have a folder structure that is ~12GB that I am trying to span across multiple DVD's.  Many of the files have very long file names, which I can't change.

I have set the option to span across multiple discs.

In options-->Data-->CD Recording Options, I have set the file system as "ISO Level 2 (212 character file names)", but before the software starts burning to the DVD's, it comes back saying that there is a list of files that it can't write because they are over 106 characters each  sad.gif

(I've tried this 2 or 3 times with the same result, which is pretty time consuming since each step takes forever when working with so much data.)

Will the 212 character limit work with this version of the software on a DVD?  Is there another version of Roxio or another product that will work?  Any suggestions?

Most, who frequent these forums, don't know much about the stripped down OEM version of the software, that comes with a Dell computer.

Spanning discs can cause problems in the future.  You are better off getting an external hard drive, and back up that 12GB file to it.

I know that that doesn't answer your question, but is offered as a much better solution to spanning discs.

Thanks, that makes sense about the spanning.  

With the software I'm using, I will have situations where my folder structure can fit on one disc, but has file names over 106 characters, so I'm hoping someone on this forum may have some insight into whether that's possible with the Dell OEM version of this software.

If your Version has Creator Classic, it is a simple matter to set the Project Properties to UDF, No Bridge and all of these restrictions disappear…

As GPB said, Spanning is a really, really bad idea unless data lose is your goal???

Did you try the built in XP Burning?
