I cannot delete files waiting to be written to CD.  its trying to burn my Fonts folder.  I tried removing and enabled cd recording on the drive properties without success.  I tried deleted it in safemode without success.  I tried deleting the fonts folder from application data/microsoft/cd burning/ and still cant delete it...

Can i delete it without attaching drive to another computer?

Do you have more than 1 user on this computer?  

Is the user you are logged in as an Administrator?

If you browse to the default path of your windows installation:  usually   c:\windows         do you see a    fonts     folder there?
