Here's a hard one: why can’t I copy my files? [More griping inside]

I’m used to backing up stuff easily using CD-RWs and packet writing software. On my new computer set up (XP + Nero’s InCD, latest version) trying to do this has led to nothing but error messages and curses. Typical situation: buy new CD-RW. Format it. Open Windows Explorer. Copy files to CD. Error message: one of the file names is too long or something else is wrong with the file. Erase CD. Format again. Rinse & repeat.
There is nothing wrong with my files and the ”too long” file names can be less than 10 characters. The only way to get help from Nero is through an online support form that didn’t work, that’s why I’m bringing my troubles here again.
Any packet writing freeware out there?
