Windows 7 Disk burning LFN formats & convention

Specs: Windows 7
I am curious if anyone knows what disk burning formats Windows7 uses for its included disk burner?

For instance, when doing CD tests, I found that the amount of folder and filename characters allowed by Windows is not the same as the amounts specified by either ISO9660 Extended or Joliet. I included the 3 root drive characters, backslashes and the invisible null character at the end of each path in my tests, as these must be included in the actual string lengths.

So in a nutshell, what formats does Windows7 use for CD, DVD and Bluray disks?

Thanks for any replies!

Hey 13526 > Thanks for the reply. I was able to get that far, but that document and anything I can find online does not talk about the actual file structures...Amount characters allowed for each folder name, maximum characters across an entire folder path and maximum file name length. Those three limits are critical when dealing with deep nested folders and long file names.
