Thanks, Michael. 862 is, if I'm not mistaken, the old IBM encoding. A
more common encoding today is cp1255 or 1255, which it turns out is a
superset of iso8859-8 and that's why Linux does not need iso8859-8.
Codepage cp1255 and 1255 did not help me read the card, though
(Non-ascii characters in filenames remained as question marks). Any
other ideas? Thanks.
