I have had premiere elements 10 for a few months and starting about a week ago I have been getting an error while trying to burn video to a dvd disc in avchd format.
I have used several different discs but the error always occurs at 99% of the burn stage. The buring just stops no matter how long I wait. I can still burn avchd disc using the video browser program that came with my cannon vixia hd camera.I don't have any problems burning video to dvd in standard format. I am a novice at this judging by what I have read in the forums. My computer is relatively new hp running windows 7 premium home 64 bit. To the best of my knowledge nothing has changed on the computer,
and I have plenty of memory.
First, is this program hang at 99% of the physical burning operation, or 99% of the authoring operation, of which the physical burn is the very last phase?
How much defragmented free-space do you have on your HDD?
Can you Burn to Folder (not sure if that is an option with AVCHD?), and use a utility, such as ImgBurn, to do the physical burn?
it hangs at 99% of the physical burn. I have tried several different clips of varying lengths, no difference. Hard drive is 1 tig, and I defragged it. no help. not sure about how to burn to folder I did try to encode to a folder, and when I opened the folder it went through the encoding process and stop burning @ 99% again
Thank you for that information.
First two thoughts:
What brand and type of blank media are you using?
Have you checked for updates for your multi-drive/burner's firmware?
Both of those can impact the success of a burn.
As a test, I would Burn to Folder, then use a utility, such as ImgBurn (free and great), to see if this is a media, burner or perhaps PrE issue.
Good luck, and please let us know a bit more,
I downloaded the ImgBurn and used it to burn sample discs in AVCHD it works fine. It seems to be a very fast easy to use program. I didn't get the disc menu that I added to the file but it did burn with the editing I did to the videos.
The issue seems to be in the PrE program, because as I mentioned I have been able to burn these discs with my video browser program. The PrE just has more editing features. I could get the tech support that I would have to pay for, but I'm not sure I want to pay $39 to fix a program I just bought.
Thanks for the help, and any more suggestions would be appreciated.
