Sorry, forgot to attach it. I just did.

I totally agree with you. I don't have the intention to send it, but to get a fix. It's so strange that they cannot reproduce it, I don't understand the reason.

You're right about the simplicity of the workaround, but I haven't found a way to automatically identify and shorten the longnamed files. Considering that only in the folder of my studies I have more that 25.000 files, it would be a pain in the a** to manually find them. Maybe I should focus my energy in finding a way to automatize that job instead of getting a fix from iRiver. By the way, I'm a Linux user.
