Files wating to be written to disc


  • This is a common problem apparently, but in searching google, I don't find an answer.

    Every time I log in,  a balloon pops up telling me I have files waiting to be written to cd and asking me to click on the balloon to view the files.  When I do that, I am prompted to insert a cd or dvd in the drive.  A window then opens up which contains no files. Even if I log on with a disc in the drive, I still get the baloon and if I click on it, I get the open window with no files. One suggestion I saw on the Internet was to disable cd writing in the device properties screens. I could see no option for this.

    Anybody know how to clear this message

    Have you looked in the temporary burn folder using explorer?

    If not, navigate to the hidden folder

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Temporary Burn Folder and delete the folder itself.
