    How to Stop "You have files waiting to be burned to disc" Message in Windows

       Information
    If you have the You have files waiting to be burned to disc Notification Area balloon message at every startup or log on of Windows, or just want to stop files waiting to be burned to disc, then this will show you how to stop this by clearing the Temporary Burn Cache folder.

       Note
    You usually will also have a blank window when you click on the To view the files now, click this balloon link.



    EXAMPLE: You have files waiting to be burned to disc Notification Area balloon message

    OPTION ONE

    From Computer or This PC Window

    1. Open your Computer (Windows 7/8) or This PC (Windows 8.1) window.

    2. Right click or swipe down on the CD or DVD drive with this issue, and click/tap on Delete temporary files. (see screenshot below)

    3. Click/tap on Yes to confirm deletion. (see screenshot below)

    OPTION TWO

    From the Temporary Burn Folder

    1. Do step 2, 3, or 4 below for how you would like to open the Temporary Burn Folder.

    2. Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog, type shell:cd burning, click/tap on OK, and go to step 5 below.

    3. Open Windows Explorer (Windows 7) or File Explorer (Windows 8), copy and paste the location below into the address bar, press Enter, and go to step 5 below.

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

    4. Open Folder Options, and select (dot) Show hidden files, folders, and drives.
    A) Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the location below, and go to step 5 below (see screenshot below)
    NOTE: You will have a Temporary Burn Folder for each optical drive that you have installed in your system. Connecting a U3 USB drive may add another burning folder, as well as virtual CD-Rom Emulators.

    Code:
    C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Temporary Burn Folder
    5. Delete only all contents in the Temporary Burn Folder for the optical drive and not the folder itself. (see screenshot below)
    NOTE: Everything in this folder is waiting to be burned to disc for that optical drive. In this example, I have the entire contents of the Program Files folder waiting to be burned to disc that needs to be deleted to stop that pesky You have files waiting to be burned to disc message.

    6. If you did step 4, then in Folder Options, select (dot) Don't Show hidden files, folders, and drives.

    7. Close the Temporary Burn Folder window.
    That's it,
    Shawn

    There are always alternatives to "skin the cat"
    This is how I did it:
    Start - Run - type gpedit.msc
    Go to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - All Settings.
    Look for "Remove CD Burning Features" and double click on it.
    Choose ENABLED and apply.
    You may need to reboot the computer for settings to take place.
    Perhaps, Brink, you could incorporate this in the above as an alternative?
    -Best check if it works for you first. Thing ain't always what they seem when we ae talking about computers!!

    Quicker way to Temp folder


    The easiest way to get to the desired folder is:
    Run...
    shell:cd burning

    That will take you straight there. Then just delete the files inside.

    Another way


    I had the same problem, I found an easier way of clearing the files (at least on my dell).

    My Computer> right click on the DVD/CD Drive select "Clear Temporary Files" and then confirm deletion.

    The option does not apear if you don't have files waiting.

    The above ways will work too

    Hello Udidwht,

    You should have one hidden C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Temporary Burn Folder per writable optical drive. Could you post back a screenshot of what you seeing?

    I have 2 such folders on my system, but I have 2 writeable optical drives. I suspect that it is one folder per drive. How many such drives do you have on your system? Also, some virtual disk programs such as Alcohol120% can create these folders.

    Hi Dwarf,

    Are they both named the same thing, or have slight different names like with a 1 or 2 after it?
