No you cant remove it, either get a file renamer for the pc and rename them before you transfer, or some programs on the xbox will automaticly make the size fit. I believe XBMC will auto rename the files to fit.

22-05-2005 changed: ftpserver now shortens names and replaces illegal chars (fat-x limitations)


So any build after that should have auto-renaming...

In My Experience with XBMC - it renames the files, but NOT THE FOLDERS.

No Idea why, but last night when I was FTP-ing to the 'box I had to take everything out of the folders. No Major.

With SmartFTP is looks as if it just copies the files, but if you refresh you see that the names have actually been changed.

hope this helps!
