    file naming character limit?

    Is there a way to adjust settings to get a complete file name?

    After ripping:

    i.e. file 02 Ludwig van Beethoven - Quartet in E flat major, Op. 127; II. Adagio, ma non t

    - can be edited to it's complete title:

    Ludwig van Beethoven - Quartet in E flat major, Op. 127; II. Adagio, ma non troppo e molto cantabile

    When I hover the cursor over the file I can read the complete name.

    Using 17.3 on a PC tower / Windows 7 Professional.

    Your naming string has shortened the filename so it stays under the 260 character limit (for filename and path) that is needed for compatibility.

    Found if you right click a track while in CD Ripper you can copy all file names to the clipboard and this helps with copy / paste to make everything match / complete all long files names.

    You need to be careful, if you rename the tracks so the total length is over 260 characters then there might be many programs which cannot read those files correctly.
