DriveSpaceFree of a CDR / CD-RW

4 posts in this topic

When using DriveSpaceFree to get the free space of a blank CDR or CD-RW, DriveSpaceFree returns 0. However, Windows reports 702MB free in Explorer. What am I missing?

Is the disc formatted?

I am running XP and using it's native burn capabilities. Format is not an option in properties.

I copied one file to my CD-R media using XP,s native burn process. I then ran a test script which contained DriveSpaceFree and DriveGetFileSystem. DriveGetFileSystem correctly reported a fs of CDFS. However, DriveSpaceFree reports free space of 0 and @error = 0. In Windows Explorer, Windows reports 665MB free. Is it possible that DriveSpaceFree does not handle CD-R / CD-RW correctly?
