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
Read http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1322583 for notes on installing Imgburn WITHOUT any toolbar add-ons... Set Imgburn to use the slowest burn speed your drive and media will use... I set my burn speed to 1x and let Imgburn adjust to the actual minimum
i'll give that a try later in the week
Premiere Elements 13/13.1 on Windows 7 64 bit
Have you updated 13 to 13.1 yet using an opened project's Help Menu/Updates? If not, please do that.
From your description, I am assuming that you are using Premiere Elements 13 Publish+Share/Disc/DVD disc with preset either NTSC or PAL Dolby DVD or NTSC or PAL Widescreen Dolby DVD. Please look at the following before you get involved with the popular workaround for burn to disc failures, that is, burn to folder.
Go to Edit Menu/Preferences/Scratch Disks and assure that the category for Disk Encoding is pointed to a hard drive location with lots of free hard drive space.
and now the very important part...
Go to Edit Menu/Preferences/General, find and remove the check mark next to the preference named "Use Hardware Acceleration (works on Intel HD Graphics 2000 or higher)". Then do the burn to disc. Is the burn to disc (DVD-VIDEO on DVD) successful now, including being able to view its contents with your TV DVD player?
What video card/graphics card does your computer use?
Looking forward to your results as your schedule permits.
Add On...if you are forced into the workaround of burn to folder, the following should be of interest
You sorted me out last time so I'll get on to your suggestions later this week and get back to you.
was already on 13.3 and ok with scratch disk space.
problem was with the Use Hardware Acceleration. Unticked and now all ok,again.
thanks for your help - no way I would have found that myself not least because I've no idea what it means
Wonderful news that the problem is resolved with disabling of the preference named "Use Hardware Acceleration (works on Intel HD Graphics 2000 and higher)". Great job of follow through to gain your success.
I started to do some looking at some very basic aspects of this preference and have written about it. Can be found
Best wishes for great projects.
Ah, well as that change came as a default in the update, that would explain why the box was ticked.
i Was sure I hadn't changed any of the settings myself
