Vista has a glitch that for some reason shows a little misleading info about hard disks and optical media. My dvd was read once as 4.33gb and 5 minutes later as 4.59gb. It also may depend on the optical drive you are using (if the xp one is the same or not as the vista one). Hope that helps!!!

Vista doesn't write to DVD's unless you have third party software to make that happen. It reads them ok, but no write. It makes all kinds of indications that it is formatting and such but it lies...........
I have been working on this problem for months. Hard to get info out of MS. on this. Tried Corel, but they don't have vista approved stuff, triing Nero now, but hard to get information on thier programs.
