Roxio Creator 9 Xe Incorrectly Creates Three Duplicate Folders


bruce2359

Question

I'm running Roxio Creator 9 XE on Win/XP Pro SP2.

 

I'm creating Data Disks to burn to CD important files. On disk, I have a big folder (700 meg) on f: drive, with several dozen sub-folders. Each sub-folder may contain three or four sub-sub-folders.

 

When I burn the big folder to cd, one such sub-sub-folder appears three times on the cd - same exact folder name, same date/time. The contents of the sub-sub folders is not what I have on disk.

 

I can copy the big folder to thumb-drive or other internal or external disk drives with no duplication of my data.

 

I have defraged and run disk check - no errors found.

 

This renders my backup cds suspect at best, useless at least.

 

Ideas?

Thanks for the reply.

 

Are any error or warning messages issued that you are not telling us about???

 

No, no errors or warnings. Quite the contrary, I get the 'successful' message.

 

...you are way over the Joliet limits and should be using UDF, No Bridge.

 

From another post:

Filename – 64 characters max

Pathname – 128 characters (full path + filename)

8 subdirectories max

4gb file length limit

 

Will check this out.

 

 

. UDF? Bridge? or No Bridge?

To test, I burned only the 3rd-level folder - successfully. Then I shortened the names of folders above, and files below; and burned the entire 'big folder' successfully.

 

I must have bumped into Joliet pathname+filename limits. I'd have hoped that Roxio software would have warned me, rather than burning defective cds.

 

Ah, well.

It does warn, every time!

IF that was actually the problem. However in testing you changed far to many things for it to be a valid test.

 

You should have recreated the original disc just the way it was the first time.
