Is this folder put on a CDR by Windows XP's native CD writing or is it a
folder on the harddrive?

Guess it depends on context - where have you seen it referred to?

When you first insert a blank CD into your CD recorder drive, Windows XP
opens a dialog box asking if you want to open a writable CD folder using
Windows Explorer.

Yes so what exactly is that? I do not see a new folder. I do see my CD
drive it looks like a folder but one is never made there. I don't
understand what a Writeable CD Folder is. If I don't do that will I not be
able to use Windows XP native tools to write to the CDR?

We call it the staging area. It's where files go to be made into a CD. So to burn a file it gets copied to the staging folder and then converted to CD then deleted.

Thanks Dave. Where exactly is this "staging" (area) folder? In the user's
temp? Can I change where it is made?
