    Why loose your DVD before burning is finished?


      Adobe Premiere 9. Når jeg brenner en DVD løser den når den har brent 85-95%. Dytter DVDen inn igjen og brenningen fortsetter, men når jeg spiller av platen hakker, stopper og fryser filmen mot slutten. Hva gjør jeg?

          Welcome to the forum.


          First, which version of PrE are you using, and on which OS version?


          Next, do you have a Stop Marker at the end of your Timeline? If so, remove that, and test.


          Good luck,

            If you are on Windows, do the below as a test


            Set your DVD output to a folder on your hard drive and then use the FREE Imgburn to write the folder to DVD (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)

                Did you try what I suggested in message #2?

                  When your burn tray opens with your disc, do you get a pop up error message associated with that event? If so, what does it say.


                  When you have your DVD disc in the burner tray, what does the burn dialog Quality Area show for Space Required and Bitrate?


                  Please take the project to burn to: 4.7 GB (Folder) instead of burn to: disc and let us know if that goes to a successful completion or not. Right now I am not interested in taking the VIDEO_TS Folder produced to DVD-VIDEO with ImgBurn or anything else, I just want to know if the Premiere Elements burn to folder process works without error.


                  Is this problem one where "it worked before but not now" or "it never worked before"? If it worked before, when and were there any changes in your computer from then until now?


                  Also, you need to inspect the TImeline content with the Timeline expanded fully so that you can look for irregularities, including placements of transitions, titles, and existance of fragments. (See -+ slider above Timeline.)


                  Let us start here and then decide what next.

                    Nei. Mitt antivirus program stoppet nedlastingen.

                      Jeg får ikke noe pop up melding.

                      Nødvendig plass er 4,3GB og platen jeg skal brenne er på 4,7GB.

                      Jeg prøvde å brenne til en mappe på harddisken og det fungerte uten feilmelding.

                      Mulig det begynte etter instalasjon av Win7 64bit.

                      I går løste platen ut under Compiling Media 97%. DVD-platen er TDK 1 - 8X 4,7GB Scratch Proof DVD-R

                      Kan ikke registrere noen feil på tidslinjen.

                      Mulig jeg må invistere i ny versjon av Premiere Elements?

                        Let us review the situation before thinking to move from Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 to 12.


                        Important information to know is what does the burn dialog show for Space Required and Bitrate when you have a check mark next to "Fit Content to Available Space" just before you hit the Burn button.


                        Just a reminder, the DVD disc labelled 4.7 GB/120 minutes is in reality 4.38 GB, not 4.7 GB. And, if you went to a DVD disc labelled 8.5 GB/240 minutes, that is in reality 7.95 GB, not 8.5 GB. You say that the Space Required is 4.3 GB. You are probably at disc capacity or over. If you have been using "Fit Content to Available Space" and you see a Bitrate less than 8.00 Mbps, then the project is lowering the Bitrate to make the fit. Lower Bitrate means lower quality. If that is the case, how low is important. So, what is the Bitrate in the burn dialog before you hit Burn button there?


                        The other factor facing you if you are doing a large project in Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 is computer resources. Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 is going to be a 32 bit application whether it is run in 32 bit system or in the 32 bit compatibility mode of a 64 bit system. That means maximum supported installed RAM = 4 GB of which 3.2 to 3.0 GB or less of that are available.


                        In the above, thoughts might be to consider the DVD double layer single sided disc (8.5 GB/240 minutes) and Premiere Elements 10, 11, or 12 which would be a 64 application when run specifically on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit....means Premiere Elements has available the 64 bit resources.


                        But, you must rule in or out the Timeline content and irregularities in it (transitions placement, fragments in the tracks, audio placement, etc) as well as Timeline size and resource demands.

                        Very close inspection of the expanded Timeline is important here.


                        You say that you have been able to burn to folder (presumed "Folder 4.7 GB"). If you are in need of your DVD-VIDEO on DVD now and the burn to is not yet resolved, you can take the VIDEO_TS Folder in the saved folder and bring it to DVD-VIDEO on DVD using the free ImgBurn program ("Write files/folder to disc" category)


                        Do not bother with any Audio_TS Folder that might be mentioned in the article.

                        With all downloads, be careful for your choices during download and installation so that you do not get unwanted software on your computer during that ImgBurn program download and installation.

                        If you need help with the ImgBurn program, please let us know.

                        Use it only if you need your DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc now and burn to is not yet working.


                        Have you opened a new project and, as a mini test run, tried a burn to disc with a smaller Timeline content? If so, does that work? If so, then look to the size of the problem project as well as for irregularies in the Timeline expanded.


                        We will watch for your results.


                        Thank you.

                          When I shall burn DVD: Space required 4.37 GB Bit Rate and 6.58 Mbps.

                          I deleted a portion of the video to just under 4.3 GB then the Bit Rate 8.0 Mbps and the burning went ok.

                          So then everything is ok.

                          The computer has Intel Core i7CPU ram 6.00 GB

                          Download ImgBurn was stopped by Norman Security Suite antivirus program says that the file is infected.

                          Thanks for the great information, have learned a lot from this.

                          Thanks again and finally for now.

                            Thanks for the follow up with the good news that you have identified the size of the project to be a factor in the burn to disc. Good job.


                            The recent downloads of ImgBurn from the parent site have presented problems that did not exist when I first downloaded the program a few years ago. I work from the older version if I use the program at all. These new versions are bothered with unwanted software and toolbars that accompany the ImgBurn program. I will not update because of that. Negative comments can be found in



                            The version that I have is (about 2 years ago). Would you want to explore downloading that version carefully and determine if it is safe according to your antivirus? The following is a link to older versions



                            Thanks for the opportunity to be of assistance with your Premiere Elements workflows.
