Default CD R properties show full

we have a couple dc r's here that the properties show they are full but actually only have about 29meg of files on them. is this a typical failure for cdr's?

well what happends is everytime you write the CD the CD thinks its full. Make sure you don't close the CD or you will be unable to write to them again.

You probably finalized them, so there's no way to write anything more to them. Make sure you leave them open if you wish to write more to them, but also make sure you read them with a burner as most standard drives won't read open disks.
