Windows 7: Notification icon change and another auto select option

12 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x32

Hey guys,

I am looking for 2 things which im having much difficulty, the first is during a disk format of a cd-r or dvd-r the OS displays a notification icon for the process until it is complete. My problem here is the system runs in a program that is kept in the forground and there is no access normally for the start bar or windows. During the time that the notification icon is in the task bar though it allows them full access to the start bar. Is there anyway to disable this notification icon for the formatting process?

My second question. Is there a way to auto select like a flash drive for burning everytime.

Ok so found out that during a format, which i did a dvd-r to keep the notifcation open longer that i could then modify the notifications and see that process to hide it and it looks like it stays hidden now to not pop the start bar to the front of the program.

So now i just need to find a way to auto select like a flash drive for burning everytime.

You can add your Usb (flash drive) to the 'send to' menu with Send To Toys
:: ::
Then send the file you want to burn, to your flash drive.

Sorry i should have been more specific in my question.

Im more so inquiring about the pop up that shows up everytime you want to burn a cd or dvd. It gives you the two options burn like a flash drive which is the live file system option or to burn it as a mastered disk.

If possible i would just like it to auto select live file system everytime for the user.
