cd-rw copying to cd-r problem

I want to copy a phillips cd-rw 74min 650mb disc that works fine and contains music to an emtec cd-r high performance 700mb 80min disc. However, when i go to do this i get the message "Please insert a blank disc with at least 69:13 minutes (311,511 sectors) free space" the disc is brand new so I know that it has not been used before.

Could anyone explain why the cd-rw takes the files but the cd-r won't??

p.s. i have tried two emtec discs with the same result.

Are you doing on the fly copying? That is direct from CDRW to CDR. If so, try copying to hard drive first then write to the CDR. Takes longer but it's much more reliable.
