Remove "Files ready to be written to disc" from Optical drive?

I've just burned a Data DVD with Nero Burning Rom 11, it's the first burn I've done on Windows 7 since upgrading.

When it was finished and I went into the disc, it had items on the disc, but under it it had "Files ready to be written to disc", with a configuration file called desktop...

How can I remove this option?

I believe this is what you want,

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

That is just a temporary cache folder.
