Windows XP annoyance: I've managed to create some files with names that are too long. How can I rename them?

I can't open them, and I can't find a way to copy, move, or burn them. Usual methods of renaming files don't work (F2, right-click menu, Properties, Windows Explorer, etc.) I've tried shortening the path by renaming folders, but that didn't do it either. These are mp3 files, by the way.
