How to delete a Bad Volume??
on Jul 12, 2005 at 5:33:51 pm

OS 10.4.1 on a Dual 2.7 G5

I toss some files on a disk to back them up. I burn the disk. After burning the disk the G5 spits it out and says it "Failed to Verify". I don't want to try again (I already have a nice set of shiny coasters, thank you.). So I move on.

Ah ha. Now there is a volume, a folder with a burn symbol on it. I can't get rid of it. Actually I have two of them now. I drag 'em to the trash, they just re-appear in the left hand margin of every finder window. cntl+click, shift+click, option+click and apple+click don't give me anything but a "I can't find the volume" message.

ALl I want to do is make them go away. Please tell me how.

OK I stumbled on a solution. I loaded up a blank CDRom, then I dragged the radioactive folders to it, each time these bad volumes landed on the disk they dissapeared in a puf of smoke. Literaly.
