The ISO tab provides options for configuring the ISO file system. 
ISO 9660 is a system-independent standard. It can be read on all operating systems. The following features apply:
 
 
 
§
Permits eight characters plus 3 characters for the file extension (Level 1) or 31 characters (Level 2) for the file name including the file extension.
§
Permits eight characters for the folder name.
§
Restricts the maximum directory depth to eight levels (including root folder).
§
The characters A-Z, 0-9 and the underscore (_) are permitted.
In the ISO tab, in the area Relax Restriction, the restrictions imposed by the selected file system can be relaxed. For example, you can allow a higher path level or more than 64 characters for the Joliet name. 

 

 

 

If the disc should be read on all operating systems, select ISO 9660 as the file system and clear all check boxes in the Relax restrictions area.

 

 

 

 

An advisory message appears on the ISO tab in the Information area if the disc cannot be read on all operating systems.

 

 

 

 

If the disc is to be used mainly on computers with Microsoft Windows and you want to use lowercase letters and/or foreign language characters for the file names, select ISO 9660 + Joliet as the file system.

 

 
The following setting options are available on the ISO tab in the Data and File areas:
