I am trying to perform a very trivial function of burning JPEGS on my DVD. I've done it tons of times with minimal issues.
However, recently, I have noticed a consistent issue in the burn folder:
When I try to place JPEGS from a master/original folder to a burn folder on my desktop, I notice that most all files will correctly be "alias" files (as expected). However, there are a few (one or two) that will show up as JPEG files. That JPEG file size is smaller than the original, which leads me to believe that it is having trouble making it an alias file. When I click on that JPEG file in the burn folder, I get the following error "the file 'xyz.jpg' could not be opened. It may be damaged or use a file format that preview doesn't recognize." However, when I open that file from the origina source, it opens fine.
When I "get info" properties, I notice that in the general file information section, it does not show the original source location (as it does when looking at the alias "get info" properties.)
So what I have to do at this point is delete the false JPEG file image in the burn folder, and individually replace that with the file from the original source. At that point, it makes it an alias file.
Although I found a work around to get files burned, I want to fix this so this does not happen when I am placing large amounts of files in burn folder. As it is, I can no longer trust the burn folder and have to inspect it before I burn to make sure all files are alias files.
Anybody experience this and have a way to fix this in the system?
Many of you probably are experiencing this, but if you are not checking your burn folder, it will just look like a corrupt file on your CD/DVD.
Thanks for your help.
