wierd.... it hasing been working fine for ages... no problems.. today i went to copy a couple of cd's and... it just wont happen.... the properties for the Cd's keeps coming up as 488mb not 700mb ....
why the hell this would happen after it has been going good i dont know but where would i start to correct it...

i really dont want to upgrade firmware etc. the last dvd writer i had blew out when i did that.... any ideas..??

Does it read DVDs? Where did you read the properties of the cd? In my computer i assume

a bland dvd is coming up no free space.... yes i read the properties in ...my computer..... but windows media showed the same amount of free space and would only enter 14 songs....

And how are u copying whatever??

If you're using XP, it doesn't support burning to DVD's.

It wouldn't know what you're doing.

And what program besides My computer, are you using?

Have you got Nero or Nerovision? If u have, are you using these?

And I take it, you're not formatting these CD's/DVD's. Before u do whatever.
