    heya. I'm having a hardtime buring some pictures to Cd. Theres about 40 megs of photo's that i would like to burn to a CD, when i put the Cd in the Cd rom it opens up asking what id like to do with it, i select, "Open a burnable folder" and when it brings up the window, explorer.exe crashes. I can open up NTI cd maker (default CD burning program on the computer) and burn it that way but i got used to doing it this way. Did i mention that this just started happening.
    Anyone have any experience with this happening in the past? I would prefer to do it the fastest way possible, which seems to be this, but im not married to it.

    thanks!

    How about closing the first window and just selecting all the photos and using "Send to..." the burner? When you are done, all you need to do is open that CD drive in My Computer, File menu, "Burn...."

    Which window crashes explorer?

    You might want to try a system file check. Go to Start >Run, and type: cmd

    At the prompt, type: sfc /scannow

    Reboot after the scan so that found system file replacements can be renamed and put into place (You can see how many files are being replaced by looking in this entry after the scan: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations - that may not be the exact name since mine is empty at the moment).

    You will be prompted by sfc to insert your XP CD. If you have an application like Nero Drive Speed, it is a good idea to run it during this operation and keep your CD speed up to 4x or more. If you don't, sfc will keep popping up a window asking for the CD and you will have to click "Retry" quite a few times, but that is not all that difficult, I guess.

    I'll give that a shot.
    Yea its the window that comes up with the "Documents waiting to be burned to a CD" items in it, Then at that point you would go to file>burn or whatever. Right when that folder comes up exploerer crashes.
