Thanks. Let's see if appears again.

Btw, the text inside the file:

Code:
[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21815
That definitely sounds like its a shell thing....

Indeed, that seems to be exactly the contents of the one on my system

That's odd.

From the look of the actual contents I would suggest a path to a customized folder icon for the CD Burning folder

The Windows Shell is a type of folder... Such as the Libraries and My Documents and such.

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\...l32.dll,-21815

Provides the NAME for the Shell folder

ShellClass Icon provides the icon.

Since it is a shell folder, it will have these contents.

I don't have any blank or writable discs, so I cannot recreate the condition.

It seems to me that if you hide hidden/system files, the "problem" will go away.

Thanks for the clarification - I must need sleep

I've just been looking at this oddity ... if you look a bit closer, it's not a file at all, but seems to be a shortcut.

I imagine it's just some place-holder or something like that, and not actually burn't to the disc at all .. and if you hide system files as others have said you won't see it anyway.

Just a minor Win 7 glitch it seems!

Right idea, wrong conclusion.

It is sort of a short cut (we explained this in previous posts), but it is NOT a glitch.

NOT a glitch.

It is indeed supposed to be there, and if you select to NOT see hidden files and folders, then it wont be.

Hmm, this doesn't sound like the right conclusions to me. I've had this desktop.ini "Files ready to be written" problem since using Windows 7 as well. Yes, you can *hide* it by not allowing to show hidden files and folders, but I don't think that is the main issue. When I burn bootable .iso's, they will not boot UNLESS I remove the desktop.ini item from the "Files ready to be written" section in the DVD window. It seems to me that when I remove the desktop.ini file, the disc becomes active and seems to be doing something -- the only thing making sense to me is that it is finalizing the disc. This would mean the discs don't finalize properly, although I don't know if un-finalized discs are by default non-bootable. But I have had this issue numerous times -- when I create a bootable disc, and I don't remove the desktop.ini file, that disc will NOT boot. I really doubt that hiding files and folders is going to somehow finalize the disc and it would suddenly be bootable thereby. But I have not tried hiding files and folders and burning a bootable disc. If this would make the difference, then I still consider it to be a Windows 7 glitch.
