Set your DVD output to a folder on your hard drive and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write files or folders to disc for DVD or BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)
Writing the program to a file first worked.
This is covered in the book The Muvipix.com Guide to Adobe Premier Elements 11 by Steve Grisetti, who spends a lot of time in this forum helping us with our problems. It seems to be a common problem.
I will look into the software mentioned above which may simplify the task.

If you do decide to go the burn to folder/ImgBurn route, the following "ImgBurn + VIDEO_TS Folder from Premiere Elements' burn to folder" how to can be found:
As for your burn to disc...
I do not recall your computer operating system, but assuming Premiere Elements 11 Windows 7 or 8 64 bit, if you have not already, try flushing the preferences.
Local Disk C
and in the 11.0 Folder is the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file that you delete.
Make sure that you have Folder Options "Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives" active so that you can see the whole path. If that does not work, try deleting the whole 11.0 Folder in which the Adobe Premiere Elements Prefs file exists.
When you are in the burn dialog of this problematic burn to disc project, what does the burn dialog show for Space Required and Bitrate?
Looking forward to your results.
