I see it in my properties, settings. When I open the program, it flickers and so I know it has changed, so I go there and that's what it shows 8 instead of 32. I change it back, but does not stay changed to burn the dvd. And to your question about viewing, I just do it the way it comes up when you go to burn a dvd, I don't change anything.
Everything is updated. I have checked this. When I burn pictures from Kodak program, there is no problem in the resolution. As far as I know there is only one resolution(in your properties, settings), so do not know why you are aking me what resolution.
