I don't have empty CD around to burn. Will DVD work? Does it matter?

I don't have another computer on hand to burn Partition Wizard right now. Will need to borrow someone's tomorrow. In the mean time:

DISKPART
LIST DISK
- disk 0 | status online | size 149.0gb | free 149.0gb | dyn -- | gpt --

Disk size seems wrong? I have a 160gb ssd.

Edit
Rebooted laptop and ran DISKPART again.

-disk 0 | status online | size 8mb | free 8mb | dyn -- | gpt --

There is definitely something wrong here.
