Solved: DVD Drive showing empty disk when full.
Hi, My DVD drive ( D ) shows the inserted disk is empty when it is almost full. I replaced this drive with a new one because it wouldn't burn with ' Super dvd creator ' ( this software showed DVD wrong ......? ) whatever that means. But I still have the same problem. Drive ' E ' works fine. I also have cd drive ' f ' showing which I have not got, ( it doesn't show in the device manager ). Anyone know what might be the problem ?. Thanks.

Sorted
Having checked the drive properties,the problem was, both the D and E drives were set to burn on E drive, so the Super DVD creator must use the windows burning software. So I'm pleased to say.......Sorted.
