Hey guys, I just bought some DVD-R to backup my gigs of pictures. To my horror, when I insert the DVD into my disc drive, it shows 0 bytes free and I am unable to copy my files to the disc.
Anyone knows what is going wrong? Is my DVD drive incompatible with the DVD-R? How should I check if it is?

which version of OS/windows are u using ? does it support drag and drop burning of DVDrs from explorer folder ?
Try getting a copy of dvd burning softwares like nero to burn. shld just work out fine.
btw get those better quality dvds. i usually burn 2 copies, one to stash for good. the other for occassional retrieval.

Other free programs fir Windows: CDBurnerXP, ImageBurn .. Explorer might not show the details correctly. Use these programs to check the media. Getting quality media helps preventing problems, too.

if all the disc show the same problem, its probably driver or software issue

Opps, I didn't know my system can't drag and drop to burn DVDs, I always do that when I burn CDs. Using Win XP. Tried with other software and it worked like a charm.
