This clearly says that scandisk understands that the shortname for Celtic.m3u is CELTICM3.A41, but that there is some error in the long name. It's very unfortunate that it doesn't say _what_ the error is.
You wouldn't by any chance have access to a linux box? dosfsck in linux, while certainly not perfect, tends to be a bit more detailed in the error reports.

I think they are related. If the date is bad, then it means something went wrong when creating/writing this directory entry. A bug, or maybe a disk write problem. I strongly suspect this is the problem, not the shortname.
