Build ISO9660 dir limits

Recommended Posts

I was trying to build an XP iso with image burn but it crapped out with the following error:

 

I 18:01:14 Operation Started!

I 18:01:14 Building Image Tree...

I 18:01:23 Checking Directory Depth...

E 18:01:23 Directory depth exceeds ISO9660 limit of 8 levels!

E 18:01:23 Name: '\I386\ASMS\52\policy\msft\windows\networking\dxmrtp\'

E 18:01:23 Number of directory levels in path: 9

E 18:01:23 Most directory levels in any path: 9

E 18:01:44 Operation Failed! - Duration: 00:00:30

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but I count 8 directory levels.

Also the original CD on which those directory levels exist as well is an ISO9660 image as well.

Count the slashes, not the folder names.

 

You don't see the 'Root' folder but it IS there!

 

The original image breaks the specs in more ways than just directory depth.

 

All of the options can be adjusted to get a working image though - including one to get around that initial problem.

Ok, I'll look further into it. Thx for the support :)

Hello Lightning I have a similar problem (or not so similar) as Chance:

 

If I have a file with very long path

 

C:\XXXXXXXXXXXX\XXXXXXX\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\XXXXXXXXXXXXx\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\XXXXXXXXXXXX\AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.avi

 

to my DVD, ImgBurn seemed to burn normally, but hang after cycling the tray for verification. The log said "waiting for drive to be ready". I heard a bit click sound then it seemed to hang at there and the drive kept running.

 

when I tried putting the file to a short path (near the root C:\XX\AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.avi). ImgBurn burned, cycled and verified normally.

 

It shouldn't break the limit of ISO9660 nor UDF (I use ISO9660 + UDF) as I just add the file to the root of the DVD and not the whole path. The file name length I counted was no more than 100 chars, and all are only english chars (with 2 symbols "[" and "]").

 

Is that my problem or something get wrong? :huh:

Sounds like a general burning issue to me and nothing to do with the content (these things are very rarely content related).

Actually the C:\XXXXXXXXXXXXX\XXXXXXXXXXXXXX\XXXXXXXXXXXX... is "my document" folder under C:.I build several layers of temporary folders under my document, and unzip files for burning...

 

A bit clumsy... :lol:
