Frequently Asked Questions - DVD-RW
Here you will find questions and answers to common software topics.
I downloaded some pictures to my DVD-RW drive, and now the drive seems to be stuck. When I turn on my computer now, I get a bubble stating that I have files ready to be written to CD. I click on it and I get a message please insert CD into drive.
What is most likely happening is that your computer had an error when writing the files to a CD. If you open My Computer or Windows Explorer you should be able to go to your E drive and see the temporary files waiting to be burned. Windows remembers the files from when you originally tried to burn them to a CD even if you reboot. You should be able to click on your DVD drive and delete the temporary files by highlighting them and deleting them or going to File and then picking Delete Temporary Files.
