Just installed a new DVD/CD burner and for some odd reason it shows 480mb disc in the drive at all times. It still reads and plays fine, but everything shows up as being 480mb big, even when the drive is empty.

Its a Lite-On btw

Any ideas?

Does it still burn CDs all right? If so, I wouldn't worry about it.

Yeah, it burns CDs just fine with the built in XP burn utility, havn't tried to burn any DVDs yet.

I could just chalk it up to windows quirkyness..

Well there is your answer, XP built in burning utility. It is set to FAT format cdrs, sort of like removable storage. Tun that crap off and use a real burning app like Nero, Alcohol or CloneCD, etc.

The build in XP utility comes in very handy if you have nowhere to put your drink though.
