    How do I clear files waiting to be burned to a CD?

    Locked

    I have a CD-RW drive. Past projects are hanging up the drive. I can view/listen to a CD in the drive, but I cannot burn any files to it. I keep getting a message that files are waiting to be burned to the CD, but there are none. How do I have XP clear those files that it “thinks” are waiting to be written.

      To clear the waiting files, select the folders/files from the “Files to add to the CD” area and press Delete. However, if you want to clear all the files, right-click the CD-Recordable (CD-R) drive and select “Clear staging area” from the context menu.

      You can also manually delete the files, which are stored in the %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD Burning folder. You can change this location by modifying the registry value HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ExplorerShell Folders\CD Burning.
