Ive been playing around with copying files to my xbox hard disk, and Ive come across certain restrictions. This causes lots of problems when batch transfering my mp3 collection.

Does anyone have any solid info on what is an allowable filename on a xbox filesystem? Id like to try and write a batch renamer.

So far Ive found out (via google) that it is an enhanced fat filesystem with 42 max character filenames which dont support unicode chars or the ',' symbol. The most informative page I found was

http://xbox-linux.so...d=2002173055527

Does anyone have more information they could share?

Ok, after a little trial and error, this is a list of the valid chars you can have in a filename

all alphanumeric chars
space

!@$%^&_(){}[]-`.~'#


anyone know of others?
