Hi,

I am using a tool called Ashampoo to burn files onto a CD-R. After I
burn the files of interest, I look at the contents of the CD-R, and it
looks fine.

Then, I look at the same CD-R via Windows explorer, and I don't see
the newly burned files?! Not knowing why this discrepancy existed, I
reboot the computer. After rebooting, I review the CD-R contents
through Ashampoo and WE, and they are identical.

Is this some sort of synchronization problem with Win2k? It doesn't
seem like an Ashampoo issue, does it?

Thanks, Scott

PS- Is there a problem just dragging and dropping the files onto the
CD-R? Will that copy them or do I really need Ashampoo or some burning
tool??

Even it doesn't seem like issue with windows as I am using same software for
burning but hadn't had such problem. And you need to use burning software to
burn CD's in windows 2000. In Windows XP the burning software is inbuilt in
windows so in that it is possible to do drag and drop to write files on CDROM.
