The Hotfix you selected was not designed to correct the issue that you
previously stated and it appears to apply to basic versions of Windows XP (those
that do not have any service packs installed).
Let's get back to your problem. Did you look to see if your images may still be
in the CD burning queue?
Usually, when the CD is removed from the drive before the data was burned to it,
Windows will display a warning message with multiple choices. The choices are,
delete, save, or ignore (reinstall media). Do you remember seeing this message?
If you selected save, then the images should still be in the queue.
This location can be found via Windows Explorer. It should be here:
"C:\Documents and Settings\(Your User ID)\Local Settings\Application
Check that location and post back for more info, if needed.
If they are still there, you must have removed the CD media before burning the
images to the disc
