    Blue Screen when burning a DVD


      When I try to burn a DVD the systems crash with a blue screen when "compiling media" is at 95%. Windows returns a post error "PX Engine has stopped working properly". I have followed all steps in both pages http://forums.adobe.com/thread/415318?tstart=30 and http://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-elements/kb/troubleshoot-system-errors-freezes-burning.htm l. The PX Engine is installed by Premiere and I also tried to install an update of PX Engine as instructed by Microsoft Help. Any help? I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1 on Dell XPS (Intel i7, 8 GB RAM, 250+ GB free hd space).

          A BSOD is a very serious matter. It is most often caused by hardware, or low-leve drivers interfacing with the OS. This ARTICLE goes into much more detail. It also provides links to tools, that might be very helpful.


          I would start looking for:


          • Heat (DVD burning, like Rendering and Export, is very intensive)
          • RAM (DVD burning might well be using RAM that sits unused by most other operations)
          • PSU (DVD burning requires more power, as the HDD's and multi-drive are all very active)


          Good luck,
