i was burning a cd today and accidentially bumped my powerbook and screwed up the burn. sooo... the CD automatically ejected and i figured i'd just burn it again. well, now i have an icon on my desktop that looks like a folder with the burn logo on it and it's locked. i can't unlock it... i can't delete it... how do i get rid of it?? i've tried restarted and everything.

thanks!

hmm, well check versiontracker for an application called "drop nuke"... it's basically a little app you drag files/folders on and it forces them to be deleted. i'm sure you can use terminal and some code to do this too, but this is a more user friendly way... be careful with the app of course, don't want to delete anything by mistake!
