    There is something which puzzles me...
    I have a Plextor 48/24/48 burner and Nero which i have used to successfully overburn 800mb (TDK media) BUT when i try to overburn with Imation or Traxdata 800mb media, the Plextor only reads them as 700mb. Can anyone please shed any light on this!

    The discs will only show in Nero as 700mb, but if you have overburned enabled and set to around 82 minutes, you will be able to burn the 800mb on the CD.

    Thats not the problem, as i said ive overburned with TDK discs but when ive tried to overburn using Imation discs it says there is not enough disc space.

    If you haven't done so already updating the firmware for your drive may help.

    Hi guys, thanks for taking the time out to reply.
    Ive just realised there was a slight over-sight on my behalf, the other discs work fine. After previous burns i forgot to change to the 'disc-at-once' feature. What threw me was that nero does recognise the TDK media as 800mb but not the others, although they still burn to 800mb.
    Sorry :(
