trouble writing

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

I am having trouble writing files to a cd. In the staging area, I have a
number of files waiting to be written to a cd. But when I go to write them,
an error message comes up. It says something like "cannot delete such and
such, it is open or is being used by another person. Close the file and try
again." But the file isn't open.
Not only can I not write these files to a cd, I cant even delete them from
the staging area! Woe is me! Does anyone out there know what is going on
here?
thanks

    Doesn't matter that the file isn't open. If the folder is being
    referenced by WinExpl or whatever file manager, it's considered in use.
    Have to really look around to see what is doing this. Move the cursor
    highlight in WeinExpl deliberately to another drive.
