Hi, I have the same problem. I have "burnt" a disc several times now with several different programs and every time, the disc has no visible sign of data being written to it. Cds wont play, because there is nothing on the disc. It initializes, writes, finalizes without error. but the disk is empty. When I burned some files drag and drop style in VISTA, the same thing happened, however when I put the disk back in, the drive was somehow able to show that there was 0 bytes free from the 683Mb I supposedly wrote to the disk. When I go to read the disk, it asks how I want to format the disk, as if I had just put a blank disc in.
This is confusing and a bit frustrating, any help would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance
