To wizrulz:
Try a firmware update from your CD-writer's vendor's site. If possible,try reinstalling your drive. Check it in any other system if you can. I'll check on for more info and tell you. Till that time you try the above and inform on the forum of the outcome.

Same problem here. Used nero to write the mini cd of 200mb, but after all the burning process was done, strangely the cd was still blank.
But when I used WMP10 to copy(burn) mp3 to the same CD, it worked fine. Mine is SAMSUNG cd writer.
More importantly nero detected the capacity of mini cd as 700mb even EXPLORER showed 700mb for the blank mini CD.

Mine problem is different i guess.... in my writer it doesnt detects the smaller cds......which i burnt at my friends place........but gets detected in other cd roms :cry: ......so using nero or other s/w untill it gets detected is beyond question
