Nero shows blank CD as full...windows doesn't

  1. Strange behaviour here which I've never seen before... When I put a blank CD into the burner, Windows shows it as having 650Mb capacity but 0Mb used, as I'd expect.

    When I use Nero though, it shows 0Mb used and 0Mb capacity, so it refuses to burn. I also tried CDBurnerXP which does the same. Not sure what I've done to the system to make this happen, but I'm willing to undo it if anyone has any ideas...

    Thanks for any help!
