Hey all,

I am having trouble accessing a folder on a CD I got from a vendor. It has a directory on it with a / forward slash in the name. I run 32bit Vista and have not figured a way to access the files I need in the folder.

Any ideas??

Access to another non-Windows computer such as Linux could be beneficial as Linux works pretty much exclusively with forward flash folders. Copy it to the machine, rename it and then use a Linux equivalent of CD burning software to burn it back.

Faling that, this might be worth a look, whether it'll work with illegal characters in the file name path is another matter:
