I recently bought some high capacity CD-Rs (Memorex-700MB/80 min audio) disks to use with my HP 7200i CD-RW drive. I'm using Adaptec Easy CD Creator Deluxe to copy some CDs where I need more than 74 minutes of audio, but the program reads the high capacity CD-Rs as still only being 650MB/74 min disks. I looked on Adaptec's web site and it seems I'm using the most current version of the program (3.51b I believe) and I was wondering how I could utilize these disks.

I had some problems with the Adaptec Easy CD Creator Deluxe, so I contacted my computer supplier for help. The reply was that the Adaptec software has many faults, try a free download of CDRwin from
I have found it worth paying to register the CDRwin, it does a lot more than the Adaptec. Although I have not tried any 80 min CDR discs, I guess this is one of the better packages around so it should be OK (and you can try it for free).

As a follow up to my own posting, I have also found that although EZ-CD Creator won't recognize high capacity disks when trying to use the wizard, if you use Adaptec's other program (CD Copier Deluxe)and just do a straight full copy from disk to disk, a high capacity will work. Unfortunately, this still doesn't solve the issue of wanting to pick and choose tracks from a music CD, but at least the more expensive disks will work. I hope this helps anyone else who was having my problem.
