    When I try to use 'Autodetect CD' under Win XP Home it
    suggests a CD size of 308MB no matter what.

    Is anyone working on this bug?

    More over, why does the user have the (confusing) option of
    specifying the media size in clusters or megabytes? Perhaps
    a basic mode would only allow size specified in megabytes
    and an advance mode would offer specifying size in clusters.

    thankx
