    Burning a DVD - keep getting encoding errors message, help?


      I have a video that I made out of videos, photos, and music that is less than an hour in length.  I selected highest quality b/c it was less than the available 4.7 GB of available space.  It took over a day to burn and at the very end it gave me a message saying that it was having encoding errors.  Help!  I am trying to burn it again at reduced quality, but prefer to have it at highest quality.

          Let us get the details into perspective and then we will advance from there.


          What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?


          What are the properties of the video that went on that Timeline....video compression, audio compression, frame size, frame rate, interlaced or progressive, file extension, pixel aspect ratio....photos - how many and what pixel dimensions??


          Based on the properties of your source media, what did you or the project select as the project preset?


          When you go to the burn dialog for your burn to DVD, what did the quality area of the burn dialog show for Space Required and Bitrate (with a check mark next to "Fit Content to Available Space"? The only time I would work without the check mark there is if I was getting Data Rate Error message and I had to set the Bitrate manually to move forward.


          What is the exact wording of the message(s) that you are getting once you hit Burn in the burn dialog?


          Let us start here and then we can decide what next.


          If you need clarification on anything written, please do not hesitate to ask for that clarification.


          Thank you.
