I am running Premiere 13 and am trying to burn a DVD. I can burn the project to a folder, but cannot burn directly to a DVD. The program doesn't recognize my DVD burner. When I use Windows Explorer to copy the files to a DVD, the DVD will not play in my DVD/Blue Ray player. The player recognizes the DVD -R format, but shows a blank screen, even though I have created the project with menus. Any pointers would be appreciated. I am running Windows 7.

Set your Premiere Elements DVD output to a folder on your hard drive and then use the FREE Imgburn to burn the folder to disc for DVD... Premiere Elements 13 WILL write a DVD or BluRay to an ISO (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)
