TCRT files are similar to RAR/ZIP archives.It contains all the PRG files inside.Tapecart SD file browser can only display filenames upto 12 characters long.If it is longer,it makes it unreadable.You can shorten the filenames one by one or convert all your PRG files into TCRT bundles.If it is in TCRT,it displays 16 characters and it doesn't make it unreadable.Converting PRG files into TCRT is very easy.You will find the documentation at the LOAD64 support forum.
