Burning/Reading CD-Rs - Win98 -> QNX6

Hi,

I have a bunch of files on my Win 98 file system that were created there
by RTP (running from it’s own partition).
I am trying to move these files to another machine (which uses RTP only).
I am attempting to do it by burning the files to a data CD-R (using
Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4 on the Win '98 machine) and then taking this CD
to the QNX6 machine to read/copy to the file system there (sneaker-net
using CD-R instead of diskette)
My problem is that all the lower case and mixed case file names all come
across as upper case ONLY - which kinda screws things up!
Who, and what do I change to get these file names to be cased properly??
I have looked for some options to change this, both in EasyCD Creator,
and in QNX6, but nothing jumps out… Anybody know?

One way would be to prepare ISO images using mkisofs. Or just tar
everything and put tar files into CD.

Thanks for the suggestions Igor. The problem here, is that the QNX6
stuff got moved to a different machine (on it’s own partition), and now I
am trying to move some user files too. This means that I am looking for
a way to burn these files onto a CD using Windows tools and commands.
I don’t think Windows has the mkisofs or the tar commands! 8-(
I am somewhat surprised that the casing of file names has been somehow
clobbered… Windows 98 still sees the all the file names cased correctly
(on the CD). It was written with the Joliet extensions, and the original
Win 98 files were written by the QNX6 OS.
How come QNX6 does not see the names cased correctly when reading them
from the CD?
Is there some mount option, or something similar that would cause QNX6 to
see the names correctly? (I could not find one)

You could download tar for windows at
ftp://ftp.qnx.org.ru/pub/win32/tar.exe
ftp://ftp.qnx.org.ru/pub/win32/cigwin1.dll is reqired too.

enjoy,

I would recommend cdrecord for burning cd’s under windows… I don’t
recall the URL, but you should be able to find it using
http://www.freshmeat.net and search for cdrecord

What is require for QNX to support a port of cdrecord? If the driver is the
only problem… make the driver source avaliable.
