This is not all about Premiere Elements, but it IS about possible hardware over heating

What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 9 running on? Are you running the program as the 9.0.1 Update?
Whatever computer operating system, Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 is a 32 bit application with all the resource limitations of a 32 bit system. Background information for now.
At this time, how much installed and available RAM and how much free hard drive space? What is your drive situation with regard to availability of free hard drive space?
Please do a free ccleaner run through (regular and registry cleaner parts). Assuming a Windows computer
Have you deleted pile ups of preview files as well as conformed audio files, and conformed video files?
If you look at the burn dialog Quality area of the crashed project, what are the readings for Space Required and Bitrate (when you have your DVD disc
in the burner tray and are ready to hit Burn)? What is the estimated file size of the MPEG2 file that you produce from this same Timeline?
Let us start here and then decide what next.
Thanks for the follow up that you were able to get a successful Premiere Elements burn to end product.
Do you think that the issue was resolved by just restarting the computer or rather letting your computer actually cool down?
If your computer is overheating John was on the right track.
Does your computer need any "dust busting" and any signs (noises or otherwise) of the fan malfunctioning? Lots of helpful online articles can be
brought up on computer overheating.
But if the problem resurfaces even after dusting and fan considerations, please let us know, and we will think about this some more.
It was restarting itself every time, so I think it was the actual cooling
down that helped. I'll check with our techs about getting it dust bustered.
