I am trying to pin down the location of the temporary files that windows XP creates when it burns files to a cd. I believ it is in a hidden system folder but need to find exactly which one.

If you have some temporary files which are ready to be burnt on a cd-r then you can find the temporary files under this folder >> "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CD burning"

Please note:  XP does not create a "temporary ISO" with the install CD.  It copies the individual files.  XP does provide the ability to burn ISOs, but you must download the ISO add-in from WIndows Update.

Re:  "location of temporary ISO files when burning cd's" Microsift Power Toy Tweak UI provides an easy to interface for changing this setting.

You can also download TweakUI from Microsoft and you change change the location of this folder

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx

After you run TweakUI, go to Desktop>Special Folders and select CD Burning. You can view the current location and change it to a new one.
