I downloaded Encore cs6 a few days ago and have been learning all its features through Lynda.com - a site with hundreds of video tutorials on all Adobe products. I had just finished making my DVD, had tested and previewed everything and followed along as the man in the Lynda tutorial made his dvd. However when he got right to the end and said 'now just press Build' i couldn't copy him as my Build button is grayed out. I also noticed that under 'Destination: Recorder it says 'none found' suggesting it can not read my Blu-Ray drive. I also tried making a DVD rather than Blu-Ray and the Build button was grayed out then too
I am working off a relatively new Alienware 17 laptop which i know has a Blu-Ray rw drive on it so there shouldn't be a problem.
Can anyone help advise?

Create a DVD output ISO file (Encore) or set your DVD output to a folder on your hard drive (Encore or Premiere Elements) and then use the FREE Imgburn to write files or folders or ISO to disc for DVD or BluRay... Premiere Elements does NOT burn to a folder for BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)
