How come my DVD drive says that my blank disks have 0 bytes of free space?

Q: My DVD drive says that I have 0 free space 0 used space with a disk in the drive. I have Windows XP, SP2. I’ve tried many ways to try and write pictures and files to DVD, with no success. In my computer and in Windows Media Player it reads as nothing. I’ve used several kinds of DVDS (Sony, Memorex, etc). It is a Sony DVD-RW so there should be no issues, all the drivers are there and are updated as well. If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated.
