Question iso burns distorted


Hello,

Please be patient with me, I am new to computers completely not just linux. I have a particular iso image that will burn but the image is distorted in the way that red green and blue are curved on the bottom ofthe screen at different degrees obviously making the movie distorted an unwatchable. I burned it with K3B and NEROLINUX I tried first by simply burning an iso image with both programs, when that didn't work i tried burning it as a compilation. I ran a test in terminal to prove that the file is indeed an ISO and is compadible with iso 9660 software. The md5 sum shows correct.

I'm out of ideas can anybody help me on this matter.

Thanx loads in advance.

Ummm, an "ISO image" isn't a picture file, but an image of a hard drive. The purpose is to give the computer a virtual drive that it can run from the CD with a system "installed" on it, without touching your installed system. It has nothing to do with looking at pictures.

Unless I misunderstand you...

iso burns distorted

It is a video iso image (a dvd rip) I have successfully burned a couple of files like this one before but this particular file just doesn't work.

You can use something like MPlayer to view the ISO image and check if the colour distortion exists there. It is entirely possible that the burning process isn't at fault but the ISO itself.

Mplayer plays the movie beautifully, dvd quality, exceptional 5.1 sound, no skips front to back. Is it possible that it is the progressive scan on my dvd player causing interference? I really don't want to give up but I'm out of ideas. Any thoughts?

If both Nero and K3b give the same results maybe it's the media itself (wild stab in the dark!!).

I assume the problem lied in the way I have my dvd player hooked up. I hooked it up with component video cables on a High def input, allowing me to only use progressive scan. I then tried a different component input and toggled off progressive scan, that didn't help. Ithen tried S-video........that didn't help. I then took two discs (the same file, one on k3b one on nero) to a friends house to try on his dvd player, it played but it was as if the movie kept pausing and unpausing.
I'm now done with downloading movies as it seems far more benificial to clone them. However I'm still very curious as to why this is because I don't like not knowing something.
