How to burn filen on DVD that are readable by HP-UX 10.20?

I am trying to burn a file on a DVD (on a Windows PC) and load it on a system with HP-UX 10.20.
The DVD was burned with Nero, using default settings. (No multisession, ISO 9660)

Mounting the DVD works fine, and I can list the file on it. The file has got ";1" added to its filename ,and it is not possible to copy it elsewhere. None of these commands work:
cp myFile /mydir/
cp myFile;1 /mydir/

Is there some formatting issue here? Should I burn the DVD using other settings?

Try to burn with mode 1, Only ISO - NO joliet!

Hope this helps!

Which you didn't actually show us.

How about this one?

cp 'myFile;1' /mydir/myFile

> Is there some formatting issue here?

Depends on your point of view. On a VMS
system, file names with version numbers
(like, say, ";1") look perfectly normal,
which is why an ISO-9660 file name looks like
that.

> Should I burn the DVD using other settings?

If your program offers "Rock-Ridge" names as
an option, then that might help.

"Joliet" names will be more useful on a
Windows system than on an HP-UX system, but
the lack of Rock Ridge names is why all you
see are the UNIX-unfriendly ISO-9660 names.

There may also be mount options on the HP-UX
system which could help. A Forum search for
keywords like, say:
mount cd names
might find several suggestions. (But, at
10.20, no bets.)

Joliet on/off makes no difference.

copy with ' works OK:

cp 'myFile;1' /myDir/myFile

How did you mount it?

Try

#mount -o cdcase /dev/dsk/ /

with 10.20, consider to try

#pfs_mountd&

#pfsd&

#pfs_mount -o xlat=unix /dev/dsk/ /

Hope this helps!
