I was trying to copy several files to a dvd with growisofs. The command I use it is:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J  /media/34GB/tmp/

But when I send it to command line, I receive this message

I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)

and then countless messages like these for many of my files.

Using F1_SC000.JPG;1 for /media/34GB/tmp/imagens/paper doll ultimos/F1-SCAN1194.JPG (F1-SCAN1189.JPG)

How can I avoid these renaming?

I made a full record, and to my surprise, the final file names are correct, despite the renaming messages. Why these messages appeared then?

It is talking about the underlying ISO 9660 format, which is limited to names like F1_SC000.JPG;1. You see the "proper" name when mounted because you are using an extension, either TRANS.TBL, Rock Ridge, or Joliet.
