Burning DVD

Have windows xp and photoshop cs3 extended. Burned dvd with easy creator 9, then ran a slide show of that disk in Photoshop Bridge. One picture has a yellow line across it, but that line does not show up when the picture is opened. So I guess the picture would print alright, but does that mean I can no longer use brige and slide show to check my burn?

So it would be fair to say then that we eliminated the potential of the yellow line being caused by the burn-to-DVD process, and that it is in fact down to the rendering of the images by the software, regardless of whether or not the images are on a hard drive or DVD?

I have seen similar problems with a burnt DVD.  What I recommend you do is burn the disc again but at a much slower speed; use the lowest speed that EC9 offers you.  Hopefully that will result in a true burn.

 I had another disk that had a picture with a yellow stripe on it, but when I opened that picture the yellow stripe was on it. But not on the source for the burn.
 So had two dvd, each with a picture with a yellow stripe. One still had the stripe when opened and one did not. That is why I asked if I could rely on Bridge and Slide Show, to view my pictures. If not what could I do?

OK.  It therefore sounds like the problem is in Adobe Bridge with reading the image data off of the DVD.  With the DVD you have, can you try viewing the images using plain old Windows Explorer in slideshow mode, and see if that gives the yellow stripe please?  ("View as Slide Show" from the side bar in Explorer)

Ah right.  I see.  OK then, I think we need to determine if the problem is in the file that has been burnt onto DVD, or if the problem is in Adobe reading from the disc.

Open a PSD off your hard drive that you have burnt onto the DVD that displayed with a yellow line.  Confirm that it does not have a yellow line in it.  Then open the same file off the DVD.  It should have the yellow line.  Then copy that same PSD off the DVD onto your hard drive (obviously not overwriting the original).  Does that PSD display with a yellow line?

I'll have to find the other disk that I burned. This disk shows the yellow line in the bridge but does not show the yellow line when opened. No yellow line from the hard drive either.

OK, but as a sidenote, do you have the latest version of Bridge?

There are no yellow lines. It takes a long time for bridge to fully open the thumbnails (blackbox around thumdnail). Had one dvd that never did open all of the thumbnails completely

OK, so is that the first disc you are looking at?

No,this number 4. It is the latest one. I burned at a slower speed. As near as I can tell it is ok. The pictures open almost actual size. But now I wonder how realiable the slide show is.
