View Full Version : 80mm/300MB CD-R

Would like to write to these dinky sized CD-Rs but am unaware of hardware or software which will enable me to do so.
Anyone done this successfully?

Someone I know burns to them all the time. He just uses his normal burning program (Nero or what ever) and Nero just sees it as a 300mb CD. No special software or hardware required.

Most CD writers can read and write these, though some software sees the disc as the usual 640mb, and you have to monitor the usage manually.

I haven't tried yet, but it should work if your drive has the smaller 8cm ring in the drive tray to hold the cd.

Hi Scott

I have trialled Nero now over Easy CD Creator and it is much better. It 'sees' the smaller disks correctly and even burns the information onto them, but they don't register as having anything on them when put into any CD-ROM.
What settings does your friend use to get good results?
