Removing Temporary Files From DVD-RW

Carma writes in with a software question:
Question:
I downloaded some pictures to drive E, which is my dvd-rw drive, and now the drive seems to be stuck. I can put in a cd or a dvd and I get a message that says please insert cd. 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. It does not show anywhere, that I can tell, that there are files to be written to cd except on the bubble at the bottom of task bar. How do I get rid of this bubble? Thanks.

Answer: 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 E drive and delete the temporary files by highlighting them and deleting them or going to File and then picking Delete Temporary Files.
