After downloading Windows 8 Primere Elements does not recognise my DVD burner nor can I upload to youtube. What can I do?
So... are you saying you had Windows 7 (or earlier) and your DVD drive WAS recognized?
This articles covers many of the reasons that PrE cannot find a DVD burner: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2776760#2776760
