    I use Roxio Creator LE Dell Edition. When I try to burn to CD I get
    the following message: The disc you have inserted does not contain
    enough free space. Please remove (quantity) from your project in order
    to use this disc. I have tried 3 empty CD. In Windows Explorer when I
    click on the E drive I get the following message: E:\ is not
    accessible Incorrect function The drive can read discs but not burn
    them. What can I do in order to burn discs again?

    How big is the ISO or other image you are trying to burn?

    I'm trying to burn two data files. One is 970,266 KB the other is
    1,270 KB

    You might try the Dell support site and see if there are updates available.
    Or determine the manufacturer and exact model of the drive, then check for a
    firmware update from the maker.

    How old is the Dell? I don't think they ship Roxio now, but Sonic RecordNow.
    If you've got an older well-used drive, it may have just finally given up on
    you. Fortunately, they're pretty inexpensive now. In fact, a DVD dual layer
    burner is a pretty darn nice upgrade for just a few bucks more.

    My Dell Dimension 9200 is only about 1 month old. They shipped Roxio
    with it. I do have the dual layer DVD burner.

    Okay, they must have switched back to Roxio then. I've seen both on their
    systems. But check into the updates. And since the system is so new, get
    Dell involved. That's what the warranty is for. It isn't at all uncommon for
    a drive to fail, and Dell should be on the paying end of the replacement if
    required.

    What do *you* think is the capacity of a blank CD?
