  3. HEVC Video Crashes Adobe Bridge 2021

    Video files create on iPhone - HEVC format - cause Bridge 2021 to hang when that file is selected, or among a group of files selected. dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe may be part of the culprit in that trying to move a HEVC file after Bridge 2021 hangs results in a 'file busy' response from Windows. Killing the dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe process frees up the file(s). Bridge 2020 does not have this issue. This happens on multiple machines and I suspect should be easy to repeat.

  4. High CPU usage

    Having generated previews and doing nothing, the CPU load is 80-100% !!!
    When running the previous version, the CPU load is only 1%
    At the moment, viewing and tagging photos is almost impossible with such high CPU usage

  6. Can't Copy&Paste or Move Adobe Bridge 2020 picture files from one Folder to a different folder in Windows 10

    There can be NOTHING more frustrating than this - - - - - impossible to move one picture file from A to B even before and after manipulation in Adobe Bridge and Photoshop and IMPOSSIBLE to rename the original Canon picture filename with a simple ABC123 etc.

    THIS CANNOT BE BEYOND THE WIT OF GENIUSES

  7. file replacement error deleted both copies

    HI! I NEED URGENT HELP.

    Bridge just vanished with my back up files from my last job.

    I made a copy of it in the organization process, and it shown me a error message when I told bridge to replace these same files back there.
    After clicking "OK" the hole original backup folder what gone, taking all the files I send to replace with it.

    It is not on trash nor anywhere else in my computer.

    Thus file replacement error deleted both copies.

  8. Bridge 10.1.1.166 and PS 22.0 not talking nice

    Installed new updates, shut down machine after completion, rebooted Win10 pro, opened Bridge to resume work. Opened a file in camera raw. finished preliminary edits, instructed Bridge to open in PS 22.0.
    PS never opened the file. Tried to open from Bridge using 'Open With' command. Same result - locked-up app. Cannot close app window with X command. Had to close with task manager, instead. Opening the same file directly from HD folder worked fine.

  9. Bridge 2021 doesn’t open or crashes on startup on iMac.

    Bridge 2021 doesn’t open or takes a very long time to open on iMac. If it opens at all, Bridge freezes or crashes completely as soon as any photo is selected. Occasionally it will continue, but then freezes on the second photo.

  11. Bridge freezes mid-edit, causing my computer to automatically restart

    I just updated to 11.0 and have been working on the same 5 photos for hours. It's crashed/restarted my computer 3 times.

    I'm working on a iMac 2015 macOS Catalina version 10.15.7

  12. Won't open, system error

    My Bridge CC 2020 suddenly won't open. It says, "The operation could not be completed. An unknot operating system error has occurred." When I click on OK, it just pops up a new and identical error message. I have to force quit it.

  14. Bridge repeatedly Freezes after about an hour of use

    This is a BUG report

    I'm working on the latest version of Bridge 10.1.1.166 using Catalina 10.15.6 on a new iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2019) and 16GB DDR4 Ram

    Everything else works fine, including PhotoShop. When using Bridge however, and this has not happened before latest update, it just FREEZES after about an hour of use. I have to Force Quit to clear the screen. This then happens repeatedly. However, if I leave the machine overnight and then restart, things seem to work again for about an hour and then it freezes again.

    I am an 80 year old pensioner…

  16. Bridge freezes after playing one brief audio file

    This is not an "idea". It is a serious bug report. Since the latest update (July 2020?), Bridge 2020 freezes after selecting one extremely brief audio WAV file. Playback "works" once, in that the playback line moves, but no sound comes out. In Windows 10 Task Manager, dynamiclinkmediaserver is taking up 90% of CPU process and over 70% of memory.

    Then Bridge freezes and can only be closed through Task manager "end task". Meanwhile, even after ending it, dynamiclinkmediaserver.exe remains running and must also be terminated manually.

    I rely on Bridge to preview hundreds of short sound effects clips, and…

  17. No signal to external monitor after last Adobe update (Bridge, Photoshop, Camera RAW, Premiere)

    After last update of Adobe products (Bridge, Photoshop, Camera RAW, Premiere) doesn't work my external monitor. It means, that when I extend desktop at the second monitor, for few seconds it works (2-3 seconds), and then monitor goes off with "no signal". This situation is the same on my desktop computer, connected to additional monitor with DisplayPort-HDMI cable, and also on my laptop, which is connected to the additional monitor with HDMI-HDMI cable.

    What is crucial, today, on my laptop, BEFORE installing these Adobe updates, there wasn't any problem with additional monitor.

  18. Photos not appearing correctly

    There are discrepancies with what appears in Adobe Bridge and Explorer. I clicked on a photo in Bridge and it opened a completely different photo, when I went to Explorer many of my photos are missing or are not the pictures that appear in Explorer!

  19. The operation could not be completed. An unknown operating system error has occurred.

    Bridge 10.0.4 - Repeated error message on startup.

    I have read the posts that are relevant and reinstalled Bridge, rebooted the computer, checked Privacy settings, removed external drives. Bridge still gives continual error messages as soon as it is started.

    The problem went away for a couple of days and has now returned. On moving a photo from one folder to another it moved the entire folder and then showed four copies of the same folder in the directory tree. Back to the same error message now on restarting. Is this unique to me or are others having similar problems?

  20. Adobe Bridge 2020 becomes unresponsive after interaction with another application on a different desktop

    I use multiple virtual desktops on my Windows 10 machine. It appears that every time I interact with an application that's open on a different desktop (e.g. Outlook), Bridge stops responding to User Input. The Title Bar doesn't say (unresponsive) when apps don't respond to OS commands. Neither does it say (unresponsive) in the task manager list. But it stops responding to all input including mouse clicks and gives me a "ding" sound. I have to force close it via Task Manager. (I haven't tested if this happens on a Mac as well.)

    Once I close Bridge via Task Manager,…
