Files ready to be written to disk?

I have two dvd r/w drives. If I put an empty dvd or cd into either of them I am met with "Files Ready to Be Written to the Disc" and it lists many files. Some of these files are years old and have nothing to do with the task at hand. How do I configure my PC to show only what is on my disc when inserted? I am simply trying to drag many photos from dvd drive G to dvd drive H without interference.

in Windows Explorer, please go here: C:\Users\'USER NAME'\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn and you should find a folder called Temporary Burn Folder.

open it and delete all the files...

this will also work (%userprofile% is called an environment variable):
 %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn

Paul SauvéCommented:
in any case, right-click on one of the files you see in the "Files Ready to Be Written to the Disc" list and select Properties

you should see the entry Location. let the cursor rest over the location and you will see the exact path to the Burn folder.

I did get to the folder "BURN", but it shows empty. To clarify, when I click on "H" the drive with a blank CD it then shows the "files ready to be burnt". Where do I go to from here?

Paul SauvéCommented:
i think that they are 'ghost' files from previous 'burns'

simply select the files and delete them―that should take care of the problem
