I needed to back-up on DVD a directory with a huge mess of files and symlinks. I don't have write access to that directory.
I have created the DVD image from GNU/Linux enabling rock-ridge and joliet extensions with the following command:
genisoimage -r -J -joliet-long -T -o mess.iso mess/
The result is fine.
Now I need to access the DVD from Windows XP but all the symlinks appear to be dangling (they are shown as 0 size files). As far as I understood, this is because symlinks are handled by the rockridge extension and Windows XP is not capable of using it.
Is there something that can be installed to properly access that DVD? A custom file manager would be an option too. I can also remaster the image with different options, if that helps.
