How to avoid extra section in DVD drive WinExplorer: "Files ready to be written to disc":


Extraordinary Member
I insert a DVD+RW with some movie files on it into the dvd drive of my computer.
A couple of seconds later the dvd drive appears in my Windows Explorer (under 64bit Win7) and the
movie files can be seen in a section "Files currently on the disc".

Fine so far.

But the much to my surprise ALWAYS another section appears:

"Files ready to be written to the disc"

which contains a files desktop.ini

How can I permanently get rid of this listing stuff?

Where does it come from?
What tells WinExplorer that this file should be written to disc?
