    Most (if not all) CD Burners will work with 80 minute/700MB CDRs. i ASSUME CD_RWs would be the same. Only an assumption though.

    i got a feeling it doesnt work on my older system. my cdrom was bought in 2000. my riovolt was last year. i have read several people say that the cds dont work with their hardware.

    can anybody confirm this?

    Older cd-roms may not read CD-RWs (and really old cd-roms will not read CDRs.)

    Any currently bought cd writer will be able to write to pretty much any disc you buy.

    this is frustrating. looks like riovolt is considered an older model, thus wont be able to run 700mb cdrw.

    Is this the Rio you have? (It's the oldest one I saw listed on their support pages)

    According to SonicBlue it will play CDRW's
    I don't see what the difference is if it's a 650MB or 700MB one. Both have been pretty standard for a long time now.
    You could always just pick up a single 700MB CDRW and give it a try. With only buying one you wouldn't be out much.
    Your burner should burn it fine. All the way back to my old 4x burner I was burning 700MB discs.
