I'm trying to copy some Japanese music that have filenames that are only in japanese over to my Zaurus but nautilus gives me errors like this:

CODE
Error "Invalid parameters" while copying "/home/xami... ?????.mp3".


And if I try to do it from the command line I get:
CODE
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/15 Always - ????.mp3': Invalid argument
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/26 ???????? - SEAMO.mp3': Invalid argument
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/11-1 ??????brand new beat? - BoA.mp3': Invalid argument
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/??showtime???.txt': Invalid argument
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/05 ?????? - ???.mp3': Invalid argument
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/17 ???? - ??????.mp3': Invalid argument
cp: cannot create regular file `/media/usbdisk/Documents/Music_Files/new/Top 30/22-1 Rising Sun - ????.mp3': Invalid argument


What gives? I would have thought that it would support japanese filenames sense it came from Japan. If I rename the files it will copy them over. But that is not practical.

Any ideas?

did you mount the disk giving utf8 parameter?

How do I remount it with utf8?
I tried the following but it didn't work and the man page seems to be of no help.

mount -o remount utf8 /media/disk-1
or
mount -o remount iocharset=utf8 /media/disk-1

OK, I got it working. It just doesnt work when certain characters are in the filename such as ":" or "~". But, I still have a problem. While the japanese filenames look fine on my linux system they look all gobboldygook on the zaurus. Does it now use utf8? Or does it use something different?

Dang, I might try going back to the original Japanese Sharp rom and see if it works, but I hope there is another way. Locale maybe?
