So, it's the exact same problem. It *must* be caused by software.

They're probably not putting the folders on the reader. Who knows.

Listing too long names in Linux, for example assuming that 200 is too long:
cd /mnt/SDCARD # or where ever you mounted it
find | grep -E .{200}
If you have long folder names also, best to abbreviate those first as that makes paths for all files inside shorter in one go.
You're the man!

PS: took a while (I had about 45 files over 200 characters), but now my Story HD works wonderfully and tolerates as many files as my 32GB card can handle. So the problem is not really solved, but a good and simple workaround was found.
