I could continue trying to find every instance of these characters,
it's very inefficient. It seems to me that I have only ever used the

I've installed convmv, which is supposed to deal with converting
sets, but it seems to me that the biggest problem is knowing which
need conversion. I don't particularly want it to go through the whole
drive converting everything unnecessarily.
Any ideas how I can ascertain which character sets were used in naming
these files, and how to list all files using that encoding? Or any
way of tackling the problem?
FWIW, I told it to convert to utf8.
Other than not using Joliet (the most correct answer IIUC) that's about
what you should do, But, just to check, you do make the conversion
_before_ the file gets copied, right?
