    Win 8 - burn to dvd fails - file names too long

    Have downloaded Win 8. Both Roxio 2010 Pro and Cyberlink Pwer2Go refuse to start burn with message that many files have a file name that is too long.

    Not come across this before and not finding anything in help.

    any ideas to resolve this welcomed.

    If you have Win 7, just right click the ISO file and choose Burn Disk Image. The built in burner handles this chore nicely. Others have used imgburn very effectively.

    I suppose that will only be solved with Windows 8 compatible versions.

    Yes, many app developers are lagging behind in updates for Win 8. Personally I would not use either of these apps anyway. Roxio lost favor long ago with me, and I never had good luck with Cyberlink.

    Using W7 64. Doenloaded both w8 and Office 2013.

    Office 13 is iso file, and that worked fine by dragging into Roxio as is.

    W8 however downloads as a zip file which I can unzip but not do the burn.

    Right click on iso files though are not giving the Burn Image option.

    Run the .exe, and during the set up choose the Install later by creating media option. Follow the prompts. See if this helps.

    Once the ISO file is downloaded use the Right Click option to burn it to DVD.

    You might want to try CDBurnerXP. Despite the name, it does work perfectly ok in Windows 7. It's freeware and includes an option to burn an ISO file to disk.
