GCE-8320B problem with 800MB cd

Postby maya on Fri Feb 14, 2003 7:11 am

I recently bought an LG GCE-8320B 32x10x40 CD-RW drive and now I'm having problems with burning a 800MB cd. LG reads all 800MB cd's as a 700mb. Is it hardware problem? I'm working with Nero v., WinOnCD v.5.0 Power Edition and CD-RW recorder firmware v1.04.

Keep in mind that 800MB discs will not always work. In fact, they are not officially supported by the drive manufacturers. I have read reports of 800MB discs writing at full capacity in the LG GCE-8320B, but this is not the case for every 800MB disc.

My advice: upgrade to the latest version of Nero,, and if that doesn't work then try another brand of 800MB disc or forget the entire experiment and chalk it up to incompatibility.
