    Creating an ISO

    I used AnyBurn to create an ISO of Ultimate Mahjongg 15.

    I named the ISO Ultimate Mahjongg 15, added the files & created the ISO.
    All worked just fine, but I have a question.

    Even though I named the ISO Ultimate Mahjongg 15, when it's mounted, I see Ultimate Mahjong.

    Is this a character limitation in AnyBurn/Windows? Just curious.

    Hello @CJW,

    I think you will find that there is a maximum 32 character limitation on NTFS and exFat. This includes the Path AND Spaces AND special valid characters etc [ DVD Drive (J:) ].

    What does it show in Properties ?

    I hope this helps.

    It's only 20 characters.

    I think the name is being lifted form somewhere else. I'd have to see how AnyBurn names the disk (ISO).

    Did you ever use A-ray scanner on the disk? It'll tell you the disk copy protection and thus know how to burn correctly... I mean, is the data available now from the ISO?

    The CD Volume Name is limited to 16 characters. That is why your CD's volume name was cut off.

    Here is what I see when looking at the properties of the drive:

    I even created a new ISO using AnyBurn:
    1. Create image from files/folders
    2. Named ISO Ultimate Mahjongg 15
    3. Added files from the CD
    4. Gave the output name of Ultimate Mahjongg 15
    5. Created ISO

    Same result.

    The ISO of the game has it own internal name. You can't change that.
    The name you "give" the ISO has nothing to do with the actual game name. It's just what you called the ISO.
    You could have called it Checkers.

    But when you "mount" the game and check it's properties, you are seeing the game's internal name.

    For example... when I mount this ISO: Win11_22H2_English_x64.iso... I see this "internal name"...

    the only way to change the "internal name" is with an ISO editor like PowerISO or UltraISO when modding an ISO image file

    I think you need to rebuild to change the label if you use ms tools like oscdimg.

    Third party programs can do it

    looks like the free anyburn can

    EDIT: I know that this posting is about a week old, but I just came upon it and noticed one error I made. I referenced a "UDFS" file system. It is actually "UDF" (without the S). Corrected this below.

    When you burn your image, make sure to use the UDF file system. That will give you a 32 character volume name limit. I simply use the Microsoft OSCDIMG command line utility to burn my images.
