Windows 7: Files Ready to Be Written to the Disc

Files Ready to Be Written to the Disc

Ok, I never got this info or 'problem' on Vista (32bits Ultimate)

Now on Windows 7 (32bits Ultimate) sometimes when I put a full DVD/CD full (I mean not empty) on the drive the explorer show me this message:



And it's always this file: desktop.ini

So, how can I stop that annoying message? And why it's happening?

Thanks

That is like the auto-run file.... Just ignore it.

Not sure how to turn it off, though you could mess with autoplay settings.

Does this happen with all DVDs, or just certain ones?

Thanks for the reply Lordbob75.

But it happens to all DVDs. Strange. Tried now to check it. And all DVDs (movies and files) with the same message/warning.

What happens if you delete the file?

Ah. I bet it is something you accidentally moved there, and now it is waiting to be written... So yeah, try to delete it and that should fix it.

Its a leftover file from a previous burn. I had the exact same problem. the burning folder is c:\users\your user name\?????/. Im sure someone knows but my brain is jello right now. If you search google for it you will also find it.

Strange, I don't remember burning something with this file inside.

But I did what Lordbob75 told, I clicked the file and deleted it. So, it's gonne.

Weird. Let's see if it backs. I tell you all

Thanks.

I would like to know as well. I have always had it there. Every time I look, there it is desktop.ini. I have ignored it but will follow this to see what the deal is.

Desktop.ini is basically a txt file that holds the location of open files. like on desktop there is a hidden desktop.ini file with these contents
[LocalizedFileNames]
Remote Desktop Connection.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe,-4000
Welcome Center.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\OobeFldr.dll,-33056
Sidebar.lnk=@%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe,-1005
Snipping Tool.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\SnippingTool.exe,-15051
Paint.lnk=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-22054

Every now and then (often when its made visible) it acts like a regular file and needs to be deleted from the burning folder
