    WHy do i get a transcoding error message?


      After creating a project, I burned a DVD to make sure it was correct before burning 13 copies.  When I went to burn the copies, I got a "transcoding error" message at 2%.  I tried again and got the same message at 80%.  On the 3rd attempt, it was back to 2%.

      Any ideas.

          What version Premiere Elements and on what computer operating system is it running?


          Does the project have disc menus? If so, what menu and how many/what kind Timeline markers? Have you put a stop marker at the end of the last item on the Timeline? If so, remove it. It is not needed there and causes a variety of burn to failures. But, usually there is an error message associated with the stop marker problem. If you go into the disc menu customization area, do you see any red frames buttons suggesting button overlap?


          Please go into the Edit area, expand the Timeline with the -+ slider above the Timeline and search for debris scattered in the Timeline track content. Sometimes it presents as very thin vertical black lines scattered in the track content.
