I have just acquired a Dell Dimension 4700 desktop with WXP Home and a new 500GB Sata hdd. The first piece of software I installed was Norton Ghost and I made an image of the clean installation. I intended to write it to a DVD and inadvertently put in a CD instead of a DVD, only to find out that I am out of blank DVD's.

Now when I start the computer, a message says that I have files to be written to CD/DVD, and if I try to explore a CD, it shows first the Norton Ghost image file, as if it was on the CD, then below that, the CD contents.

How do I reverse that attempt to drag and drop the image file into a DVD, so that the message will no longer come up during startup?

Empty/purge the contents of...whatever folder originates this message (if using the XP burn function) or uninstall (temporarily) whatever burn program is making a nuisance of itself.

At least, that's what I would try.
