    I do not have a remove temp files when I right click on the drive. When I run shell:cd burning it says folder is empty (Yes, my settings are set to show hidden and folders. When I go to '%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Temporary Burn Folder' it says it is empty. Then it says Windows can not find 'C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Temporary Burn Folder'.

    I also tried to run 'gpedit.msc ' it is not found.

    I have them all with the disk in and the disk out. The file in question is 'desktop.ini'.

    I am running win 7 home premium with service pack 1 64 bit, and it is registered and activated, and all available updates have been installed. My computer is a HP Pavilion dv6, Intel coreI/7. 2.2 Ghz, 8M ram, 90% of hard drive free.

    Any other thoughts?

    Hello Pipestr, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

    Are you getting the "You have files waiting to be burned to disc" message?

    If so, then double check in the Burn folder below to see if you may have more then one "Temporary Burn Folder" folder. If you do, then delete all contents in each one.

    %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn

    I have also tried that, and it shows the folder as empty.

    In that case, you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo it.

    Hey gang, I'm running Windows 10 but I'm also experience the "files waiting to be burned" issue and having trouble finding it in the 10 forum. I do not believe my older DVD-R's will run on this Toshiba's optical drive so I never actually burned anything. I didn't actually need to burn a disc but now I am unable to get Command and Conquer to play. It says to load the CD, which I did, but it doesn't see it and autoplay isn't doing anything either. In File Explorer, the optical drive is stuck on wanting to burn a disc. I initially right clicked and cleared the files out from File Explorer, then through these forums, went into the Temporary Burn folder and made sure it was empty. I rebooted multiple times and even added files to the folder then deleted to see if that would help. GodMode doesn't seem to offer an option and Windows is stuck on wanting to burn files that do not exist. I'm not sure what steps to take next other than restore factory settings or roll back to Windows 8 and do a fresh install of 10. I have a laptop so physically unplugging the drive then replugging is not an ideal option. I'm hoping there is another option to tell Windows to purge that task entirely?

    Hello Jim, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

    Set Windows to show you hidden items, then open the folder below to see if you may have more than one Temporary Burn Folder folder. If you do, make sure that each one is empty to see if that may help.

    %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn

    Thank you, Brink. I should have noted that I also set hidden folders to be viewable, found two of the Temporary Burn folders and deleted both. Still having the issue.

    You would have wanted to empty the folders instead of deleting them. Oops.

    That should have cleared it though. Just to double check, open shell:cd burning in Run to see if it may open another one.

    I did that as well, here's a screen shot. It's empty. I just tried Task Manager too just to see if something was running, found where File Explorer wanted to burn something, ended that task and still no help.

    Odd. See if toggling to disable and enable the DVD drive in Device Manager may be able to clear this.
