What version of Premiere Elements do you have and on what computer operating system is it running?
Without further details from you, I will generalized...
If you want to take your Timeline content to a disc that will play on a regular DVD player attached to the TV, then you
use the Publish+Share (Share in earlier version)/Disc/DVD disc with preset either PAL_Dolby DVD or PAL_Widescreen_Dolby DVD.
In more recent versions of Premiere Elements, you can burn your Timeline content to a higher resolution format on DVD disc (AVCHD DVD), but
this AVCHD DVD cannot be played back on a regular DVD player. It needs Blu-ray player that supports AVCHD DVD or one of those multimedia players
that supports AVCHD DVD.
There are several considerations that go into getting good results. We can go over each once we get the above basic information.
For your review until we exchange further information.
Your current problems could be related to
a. a burn to disc issue (the burn to folder needs to be done to define the burn issue)
b. your creation of AVCHD DVD and trying to play it with a regular player
c. problems with disc
So lots to work through.
