Windows 7: Burn to Disc Change My File Names

Burn to Disc Change My File Names

Hi,
First time this has happened. All the file names were changed to 6capital letters, an ambersand, a number, period, file extension. Example PROJEC~1.XLR. Now I don't know what the files are and I will have to open each one and find another way to save them.

But - What Happened? Why did this happen? Some new 'update'?

How can I change it back?

Sorry, and thanks,

Barbara

p.s. Windows 7 Professional

The filenames with the tilde are known as "short filenames." It looks like the file system type for the disc has gotten changed to ISO without the long filename support. Try imgburn freeware. In the file type settings it has check boxes for long filenames, directory depth etc..

Trying to burn to a disc with DRM already on it
I was asked to do the video for a local workshop; my job was to record, edit, burn, and distribute to the participants. The woman running it sent me the DVDs she wanted the video to be put on. I'm pretty sure the DVDs came with a physical DRM already on them; I can see a stripe burned on...
