Hybrid Format Corrupting Filenames With #



Hi folks!


I'm using Toast 8 Titanium and I'm hope that Roxio Team can help me.


I have burned some Multimedia DVD with hybrid format. After burn, I made first my QA in PC, and all goes well, all sounds and imagens works fine. But when I made my QA test in a Mac, that does not work properly, the sounds and imagens does not work in the application.


I notice that the MAC volume get all que filenames corrupted by the # symbol (examples attached). This is the reason that's my application do not find the archives. :(


Any clue ou solution? I Tried Joliet, Mac names… same result for all.

There seems to be a 31 character limit for for filenames on the filesystem in use. This indicates “HFS” (HFS Standard) instead of “HFS Extended” (HFS Plus) on Mac volumes.


Here's the confusing bit:

When creating a Custom Hybrid disc in Toast, you are asked to select a Mac volume (and an ISO 9660 counterpart). In that dialog window is also a checkbox for Optimize on-the-fly. Selecting this option for a Mac OS Extended volume creates a standard volume — all long file names and extended attributes will be lost.

Weird, but that's how it works. See page 63+64 of the user guide.


So, uncheck the Optimize checkbox for original long filenames, when creating a Custom Hybrid disc.

If using the “Mac & PC” disc (similar to but different from Custom Hybrid), do not select the HFS Standard option.
