files burnt to CD won't show after burn

Specs: Windows XP MCE SP3, 1.794 GHz / 1370 GB Ram
I have burnt some music files(or any files for that matter) and immediately after burn the files won't show using Windows Explorer to play/test files.They do show after a reboot or if I log back in.

Is there a fix for this so that I can view immediately after burning files to disc?

p.s. the program used to burn (ImageRecorder) was closed before trying to view files

If your files show after a reboot, no need to worry. Most likley, the program is trying to read from the temporary burn folder, which has nothing in it after a burn.
Never heard of ImageRecorder. When I googled it, it came up as a disk image burner from NERO. This 'copies' the 'image' of a disk and should not be used for individual files. Windows should always have a built-in disk burner. If it doesnt, it got deleted somehow. (my 3 year old nephew deleted half of my Xp computer's HDD last year. Luckily I had a backup.)

sorry the name of the program is InfraRecorder, that and it happens if I burn files to disc using whatever came with Windows...

Is there any fix for this?

Having to logg off for anything to work properly is not a convenience I enjoy...

Not an answer to your question but do they show if you close the burn program then take the disk out and put it back in again? If so, it's at least a bit easier.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Nope, the only way is if I logg or reboot

OK, but I can't seem to help you here, sluytman. Are you using a desktop or a laptop? If you are using a desktop, do you have 2 CD drives? If so, try burning the disk in the burner then putting it in the other drive. Maybe the disk drive 'hangs' like an old DOS hard drive on boot up if it's accessed too quickly by the OS drive scanner.
