I accidentally set my documents folder to be written to CD within windows XP.
Now it won't burn the folder because it is too large, and it won't delete the
files waiting to be written because it is a system folder (at least that is
the meassge I recieve when I try to do it). Is there a way to delete these
reference to these files? I tried to delete them from the CD burning folder,
but they are not there. I'm thinkin there is a registry entry I can change?

Hi Shane,

I believe if you right click on the CD drive and choose eject, the files
will disapear.

on your windows explorer window to your left under CD Writing Taks. Delete
temporary Files, Click that and your problem should be solved.
