    I have Roxio v8 with all LATEST updates. I have two Moser Baer CDRW... Some days ago i was writing some data to my first cdrw.. but realised that i had made some mistake and removed cd while it was writing. Then i formated it using Roxio and to my surprise cd capacity was reduced to 538 mb from 703 mb. I thought it was because of removing cd in between and ignored it..

    However yesterday when i was formating my second cdrw (third time and that too without committing any blunder) i was shocked to see that after formating the capacity have come down to 538 mb. This time i had not even removed cd while writing.

    Also i had formated my comp 2times between formatting my first cdrw and second cdrw... Hence software corruption or file corruption is ruled out...

    I think there is a problem with Roxio. Even Nero refuses to recognize size beyond 538 mb....

    Help me to restore my cds... IF THERE IS ANY SOFTWARE WHICH WILL DO LOW LEVEL FORMAT OF CDS PLZ GIVE ME THE LINK....

    Try formatting with windows native CD-RW eraser, if u have win xp.

    also some times the life of the cd-rw reduces the size i guess
