Re: chinese characters in windows xp to debian

I transfered using winscp. I've tried to rar, zip and tar it, but
still not possible to keep the encodings correctly. another way i've
tried is to transfer it to my usb stick, then mount it on my debian
(with no special mount options except for -t vfat), and still can't
display the characters.

i can however, still see chinese characters in debian, but not all,
especially the ones that i've just transfered from a windows

even for media players, i can't view all chinese characters, i use
gmpc. only some is viewable.

any suggestions are welcome :)

I think your problem is not caused by lacking fonts. Instead of that,
it's a character encoding issue.

Could you describe how did you transfer these songs? Where did you see
those "????" character? Is it the filename on your linux filesystem or
the songs' name in some music player?
