I recently found an old cd that I had burned about 10 years ago. It has
several picture files and some videos. I can see all the picture
files, but the video files will only play sound.

The funny thing about it is that for some reason my linux OS is reading
only 41 of the files, and has interpreted all the file names to be in
chinese. When I open the disk in Windows XP, there are 290 files, and
the file names are all in the original English as I named them 10 years ago.

Any idea how to teach linux how to read this CD?

Here is what the ls of the cd looks like from the linux side:

Code:
