Hi Guys

I have a problem on a desktop PC with the following symptoms.
Using a blank CD or DVD you can write files to the disk ok and read the disk ok. However if you want to add any other files to the disk after burning from the original session, Windows says the disk is full. If you check the disk in Explorer, it recognises the size of the disk but shows that there is no free space.
If you check the disk on a different PC it shows that the disk is only partially full and shows the free space ok. You can also write to the disk using a different PC.

I initially suspected the DVD drive and changed it out for a known good drive but this has made no difference whatsoever.
Does anyone have any ideas what is causing the problem?

If you have finalized the CD/DVD you can't add to it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi dc3

I did say in my original post that the disk can be written to using a different PC.
The disk is not finalized.

Any other ideas?

Hi

Its Sonic Recordnow V7.3LE. The PC is patched uptodate (XP SP3).
I've looked on the Sonic website but haven't seen a similar problem listed.
I'm not sure when the problem started as its not my PC.

Hi

Just as an update, I have resolved this problem by updating RecordNow to V9 (using Easy Media Creator Suite).
Not sure what caused the problem in the first place and I guess I'll never find out. Just passing the info on in case anyone else encounters a similar problem. :thumbsup:
