When you search for files on a CD-RW drive, Windows XP may display files in the staging folder, \CD Burning?
Windows XP merges the view of the CD-RW drive content with the CD staging folder.
NOTE: This problem only occurs on computers that have a CD-RW drive. It does NOT happen if you have a regular CD-ROM drive.
To workaround this feature, you can temporarily disable the CD Writing Feature of the CD-RW drive:
1. Right-click the CD-RW drive and press Properties.
2. Press Recording.
3. Clear the Enable CD recording on this drive box and press Apply.
