Use DVD burning software like Nero or Roxio to check if DVD disc is empty as windows may not recognize the empty space of disc, if issue persists - update the firmware of the DVD drive, you need to contact drive manufacturer to obtain the updated firmware.

My sandisk cruzer 4 GB pendrive ws working fine but now whenever i try to format\copy\cut it shows location 0 with used space 0 free space 0 what should i do


Your flashdrive usually shows 2 drives when inserted to your computer, one is the U3 drive and the other one is the removable disk drives. U3 drive is your separate partition for the U3 system and in order for you to store, copy, format your flashdrive, you should be selecting the removable disk drive, not the U3 drive. U3 is a read only memory drive that is responsible for your U3 to work (just like portable applications). Hope this helps.

Typically it means it needs to be cleaned. Get one of the CD/DVD laser lens cleaner disks with optical quality brushes on the bottom side of the disk. Diskwasher, Belkin and several other companies make them.

My DVD drive does not seem to recognize "space" on blank DVDs. I inserted a blank DVD and it kept telling me that it had 0 byte on my DVD when in fact it had 4.7 GB.


Normally a DVD blank or has data stored on it will not show unused disk capacity. If will show the disk capacite of the space it has used.
The read/write DVD disks will show the capacities used and unused after the disk has been formatted and data copied on these DVD disks.

After burning my copied cd showing free space:0 ,i tried 5 cds ...same problem


it says free space 0 because it doesn't want you to add anymore files to it because it's most likely a burn once. it says used 700mb because again, it doesn't want you to add anymore files to it because, again, it's a burn once. do you get it?

Using roxio creator basic v9 when i burn disc its writing to the disc (700MB) without giving free space,i just made a copy of original cd which has 162MB,after writing to new disc,showing 700MB used..


Burned CDs always show as being fully used. That is so users don't think they can just copy files onto it. The way to find out how much free space is to subtract the amt. of space used from the capacity of the CD. Also most CDs are burn-once so after you burn it you can't add or delete files anyway. Only CD or DVD "RW" (read-write) discs allow you to re-use them.
