"Unable to delete folders from CD recorder storage area"

By gusg ·
I have a HP Pavillon A700n pc with win XP
512MB pc 2700
3000+ AMD Athlon processor

My system crashed aand I tried to burn my pics
while in safe mode (forgot to check the disks)
now I have 1.7 gigs in the CD temporary storage
area and it won't delete info through 'del temp files' process so I can get to the cd disk
size to burn.
When I try, some folders are moved to the recycle bin but with 0 bytes.
Is there another process to use to accomplish
this. All help would be greatly appreciated

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.
