Default Transferring long filenames

Windows XP has a filename length limit of 255 characters. I have some files that exceed this limit, so I cannot easily copy them to another directory or burn them on a cd unless I shorten the subfolder names and filenames. Do any of you know a program or a method that allows you to bypass this limit? (e.g. zipping the file and then copying the zip file)
