Ok, but it's back

I just burned a new DVD and the file is there again. Telling me that's ready to be written. How can I stop that?

Annoying.

Just for Ken's peace of mind enter "shell:cd burning" into the start search bar to find the burning folder

Are you copying/moving entire folders to the ODD for burning? Perhaps you are copying the desktop.ini file. This can be examined by opening the file and determining the customizations applied.

that's the default windows 7 behavior. Download Nero Free 9.4.12.3d - FileHippo.com to avoid it.

What do you think of them? I have heard that Win7 and SSD are like Hot chocolate and stale bread... not very good together.

PS: I had the Dsektop.ini only when I use DROP and DRAG, so i use Copy and paste.
never have the problem since.

No files on that folder. Thanks for the tip. But the folderi s empty.

There's no temporary files to delete.

I'm going to check the desktop.ini content the next time I see it.

Thanks.

Do you have the system set to show hidden files and not hide sytem files - if so this could be perfectly normal behavior

As all other shell folders have a desktop.ini file it is understandable that the CD Burning folders do too.

I have just checked on my system and I have a desktop.ini file in the cd burn folder and I've never used the feature

Great, done that. I had the file. And I just deleted

Thanks. Let's see if appears again.

Btw, the text inside the file:

Code:
[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21815
