    There's no context menu for rename, I've also tried clicking on it when it's highlightd (which usually changes name too). It wont open in realplayer VLC or WMP.

    I get this error when trying to open it.

    LongPathTool will let you easily delete, copy or rename long path files. If you have also encountered problems like error messages that tell you that the path too long, too long path, destination path too long or cannot delete file then this program is definitely for you.

    You can boot from Linux Live CD and rename the file name, and make it shorter.
