Cannot finalize DVD in Windows 7
I just burned a DVD and there is no close session option available, in the global settings its set to close session when disc is ejected, but after it burned I can still add files to it.

On the toolbar the only options are to Organize and Burn to disc.

When I right click the DVD from My Computer there is no option to close the session, but I can burn to disc and format.

Just to be clear the files ARE burnt already, they are not waiting to be written.

My DVD burner is a "PIONEER DVDRW DVR-K17B ATA Device" on a HP Pavillion dv6000.

Also every time I open a writing session a hidden file named "desktop" appears and is waiting to be written, I forgot the filetype but when opened with notepad it reads:

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21815

I might just use third party software to burn my DVDs but I would like to use the integrated software to close the session if possible.

Any ideas on what might be wrong?

This is I think, the information you need

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...ze-a-CD-or-DVD

and in relation into the hidden file, it is a desktop ini. file so you must have show hidden files and folders checked.
Its appearance is normal if you do so have the system configured. It will not of course be burnt.
It is used to provide the name of the Burning folder.
Either uncheck show hidden files and folders and check hide portected operating system files or simply ignore it.
My advice is the former rather than the latter.
There are many reasons why you should NEVER run the system generally with those views enabled.
