Files with future dates

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is a bug or a file system limitation.

 

I used the layout editor to add a bunch of folders to burn to DVD. The folders contain some files that have future dates. 01/01/2036, 12/31/2036 etc.

 

When I looked at the burned disc in Explorer, the files show up without a date:

 

Files on hard drive:

Files on burned disc:

When I use the dir command to list the files, they show up with a weird 1780 date:

 

Files on hard drive:

C:\UTILS>dir Backup.*
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 548F-AC20

Directory of C:\UTILS

01/01/2036  12:00 AM             1,787 Backup.bat
08/11/2010  08:43 PM             1,899 Backup.lst

 

Files on burned disc:

E:\UTILS>dir Backup.*
Volume in drive E is Key Stuff 081910
Volume Serial Number is B287-32CE

Directory of E:\UTILS

01/01/1780  12:00 AM             1,787 Backup.bat
08/11/2010  08:43 PM             1,899 Backup.lst

 

 

Is this a bug in ImgBurn, or a limitation of the ISO9660 & Joliet file systems, which is what I set as the file systems when I burn data DVDs.

I'm guessing the hdd filesystem date is something like 0 and that's what 0 translates to in the ISO9660 / Joliet file systems.

Ok so it's not that, it's just the way Windows reads the value within the ISO9660/Joliet file systems.

 

If you look at the disc/image using IsoBuster it'll show the correct date.

 

I assume the problem comes from Microsoft's ISO9660/Joliet file system parsing implementation.

 

The Windows built in burner produces a disc with the same issue.
