Windows 7: "files ready to be written to the disk"

"files ready to be written to the disk"

Running win7 ultimate - I am getting a message like this when I open Windows Explorer but I am not at the time trying to write files. What do I need to do to kill this message... I suspect they are "leftovers" from a cancelled write or suchlike but I can't seem to figure out how to get rid of the message.

Any help would be appreciated...

Hello xwray,

You might check to see if this may be it if a optical drive was involved.

You have files waiting to be burned to disc - Stop Message

Hope this helps,
Shawn

That was entirely too easy...I can't believe I missed that.

Thank you very much

Okay, problem's back. I experimented a little, and here's what I found out.

The Temporary Burn Folder is empty, but the desktop.ini file appears as 'files waiting to be burned to disk' for that drive. It appears even when I'm playing a DVD in that drive, and there's no need for anything to be burned.

When I delete the desktop.ini file from the 'files waiting to be burned to disk' folder, the Temporary Burn folder disappears from the Burn folder.

When I reboot the computer, both the 'files waiting to be burned to disk' message appears for the DVD drive, and Temporary Burn Folder reappears (with nothing in it!).

Win7 Home Premium.

Do this, go to Folder Options > View > check "Hide protected operating system files" You will no longer have this issue.

Well, that makes it invisible, but will it possibly be burned to the next disk I burn?

Hidden files like desktop.ini are not burned to disk.
