I've never heard of that happening before. Do you have your options set to show all files?
Use your CD ROM to read CDs, since it will make your burner last longer. One other thing I can recommend is to re-install Windows and see if the problem goes away. Windows can do some strange things. On two occasions, I couldn't save, copy or move any files. I had to use DOS to copy my data to another HD, then format.
