    i have a lite-on dvd+/-rw sohw-1213s and anytime i put a dvd-r or dvd+r into the drive the disc size is displayed as 648mb and the same also happens with dvd+rw discs and i am wondering how i can fix this. i recently reformatted my hard drive and i wasn't getting this problem before that.

    It may help to uninstall the drive through Windows. Try this:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for DVD/CD ROM Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    If this doesn't help try the same steps as above except expand the tree for IDE ATA/ATA Controllers and uninstall either the Primary or Secondary controller depending on which one the drive in question is attatched to. Nero Info Tool can tell you which chain the drive is on under the Configuration tab.

    If that doesn't help an ASPI install may do the trick. Here's a link to the download and instructions:
