Have you tried UDF instead of iso9660. UDF is a newer filesystem than
iso9660, but it has still been around for a while. I know we use UDF
even on CDs because the filename max. for iso9660 is too small.

FYI: IIRC Win98 and newer can read UDF. Win95 cannot. Not sure how
long the linux kernel has had UDF support.
