    CD-R disk freezes Explorer

    I've been saving jpg files to a CD and have always checks the contents by using Explorer's thumbnail option. For some reason, when I try to check the disk with Microsoft Explorer, it freezes up. I thought it might have just bogged down my 400 Mz PII, so I left it run for an hour (still remained frozen).

    Is there a way to delete the thumbs.db file on a CD? Is there a way to disable thumbnails in Explorer? I'm stumped on this one.

    Re: CD-R disk freezes Explorer

    To answer the second question, you can disable thumbnails in Explorer just by opening the folder & changing the view options from thumbnails to something else (large icons, details, etc.).

    As far as the first question, I have Adaptec Direct CD. When I save a file to a CD, I can still delete it using Direct CD. I'm not sure what kind of burner or software you're using.
    Cheers,

    I can't disable thumbnails in Explorer because just opening the CD-R freezes everything.

    By default, Windows Explorer opens to the C: drive. Change your View settings there and then try opening the CD-R.

    You might also want to empty your Temporary Internet Files folder and clean up your Temp folder. This sounds like it might be a system resource issue.
