XP is rather nutty about CD RECORDING so I never use that function. Too flaky for my taste. Let's just say it's busted and use anything else for recording.
Now that recording is turned off for XP the OS then all CD/DVD media should always report ZERO BYTES FREE as the OS doesn't know how to record to CD. XP certainly never recorded to DVD so that's a DEAD END.
Titles I've used last week that are free include:
I can see where new folk can want this to work but it's an old OS with many issues like this. No reason to fix this but plenty of ways to move on and work with CD/DVD recordable media for free.
Here are my spec's!
Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Servise Pack 3
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.40 GHz
3.00 GB of RAM
I have two Sony DVD-RW drives installed in my desktop. They run off the same IDE cable. On top is my master and below is the slave. According to the instructions that came with them the jumper's are in the correct posotion. Both drives are completly visible to XP. The problem is that when you right click on both of the drive it shows it as full. Go to the recording tab in both and one of them the box that says "Enable CD recording on this drive" is checked and the drive is accessable. The other one gives of the error "DRIVE:\ is not accessible. Incorrect function" Now here is the trickey part. I found out that you fix this by just clicking the box that says "Enable CD recording on this drive" then apply followed by ok in the drive properties that has the problem. But when I do this is makes the problem go to the other drive. So no matter which drive you fix it just transfers the same problem to the other drive.
