I have a MBP and when I insert a blank DVD +RW, it only shows 710MB of space versus the 4.7GB it is supposed to..

Someone mentioned something about only being able to use DVD - discs...is this true??
Thanks

sounds like it's thinking it's acdr youve inserted, which burning program are you using? if it is Roxio toast, make sure you have set it to DVD mode. as for the MBP being able to burn dvd's, they all do as standard
