  • XP has this wonderful CD burning feature...

    DON'T send your 'Windows' or 'Program Files' folders to the CD burn list...

    A mental giant here has done so, and now can't burn anything as he cannot delete the files from the list (cause they're in use)

    I know they are a copy of the system folders which are put into the &#39;Application Data&#39; folder under his login name profile, but Windows doesn&#39;t appear to realise this... <_<

    The folder in question is this one...

    "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning" folder.

    Take care out there....

    Oh.. and my ribs hurt from larfing...
    Aim high and consider yourself worthy of great things

    ROFL!!!!!!!
    that&#39;s almost as cool as my ex burning a cd with "word" on it for her parents. she realised it didn&#39;t work so i had a look and all she had on the disk was the file titled "winword.exe"
    what would happen, if this were gone, would you be there, for how long. . . . . .

      AHAHAHAHAHAHA
      that has to be the funniest thing ever
      you could remove/move it with DOS, but you&#39;d have to install it

      i backed up 1000&#39;s of mp3&#39;s (which i ripped off cd&#39;s which i bought ) onto cd, and after deleting them realised i had only burnt shortcuts to all the songs

      windows is so cute sometimes

            That depends if your running the NTFS or FAT32 file system. If your running NTFS then DOS will not reconise the drive ... period.

            you will need to get a linux boot disk and boot of that to gain access to the drive. You also need to know a little of linux to mount the drive and then access and remove or clean the directory.

            reboot and all should be ok.

              Or you get ntfs4dos

              http://www.google.com.au/search?q=ntfs4dos

              Or use XP recovery from booting the cd
