    Create an ISO (Encore) or folder on your hard drive (Encore or Premiere Elements) and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write files or folders or ISO to disc for DVD or BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)

    Bernard,

     

    That is a good start on the info, and is appreciated.

     

    One quick question, regarding your computer - How much defragmented free space to you have on your HDD's (Hard Disc Drives), and where are your PrE Scratch Disks set (which HDD)?

     

    Authoring a DVD can require quite a bit of HDD space (the location of the Scratch Disks), but even if one has plenty of defragmented space there, if their C:\ is nearly full, the authoring process can hang, or crash the program.

     

    Good luck, and just add that information in your Reply, as you did with the file and other system info.

    • What project setting did you use when starting the project?
    • Can you post a screenshot of your entire timeline? (use the backslash key in Timeline view '\' to display the whole timeline and expand the timeline vertically to display all the tracks used).

     

    Try burning to disk rather than a DVD. This will create a folder containing subfolders VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS.

     

    • Does this complete?
    • If it does can you play the files in that folder with a software DVD Player?

     

    If you don't have a software DVD player, use the open source player "VLC". If you don't like installing additional software there is also a "portable version" (that makes no system changes, it just runs from its own folder).

     

    Cheers,

    Bernard,

     

    While on the low side, if you have recently defragmented that 54.9GB of space, it should be adequate for such an operation.

     

    When contemplating free-space, a few things to think about are:

     

    1. Adequate space for PrE to write its working files (in location set in Preferences for Scratch Disks)
    2. Adequate space for PrE to write the Transcode files. For a DVD authoring session, it will write the MPEG Video file, the AC3, or WAV Audio file, a few small "helper" files, then combine the Video and Audio files into one (this will lead to all three files being on the system, before the multiplexing, or combining, but once complete, the separate Audio & Video files will be deleted. Then the rewrapping of the MPEG file (now multiplexed) into the VOB's, along with the Menus and navigation added to the first VOB.
    3. Adequate space for Windows to write its Virtual Memory Page File, if dynamically managed (the default). This file's size will be based on how much installed RAM one has, and much additional memory, the OS and PrE need at a given moment.

     

    You should have enough. The "rule of thumb" is between 40GB and 60GB, and you are at the high-end of that. Thank you for that info.

     

    I think that Neale poses some good questions and suggestions.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Hunt
