How do I change cdrom size in k3b?


Somehow k3b doesn't auto detect the size of the writable media like nero... when I try to burn a CD it's always 650 mb at the max though i am sure that my blank CDR is 700 mb.. can anyone help me solve this? I can't find where I can change this setting in k3b

At the very bottom where you see the size of the disk used progress bar when adding files in a project right click on it and select the size of the disc you have in the menu that pops up.

Can also be set in options or some such menu (just browse the menus and riders until you find it). Good luck .
