    Unable to burn dvd with prem elements

      Unable to burn DVD from Premiere Elements directly. I can save a video file to a folder, but NOT with a MENU.

          What version of Premiere Elements, and what computer operating system is involved?

           

          If you cannot burn to disc (with menus), can you burn to Folder (4.7 GB) which can have menus?

          Just in case mention....the burn to folder mentioned as a burn to disc alternative in this forum is not exporting your Timeline content

          to a folder on the hard drive using Publish+Share/Computer/. The burn to Folder (4.7 GB) alternative is done (if using Premiere Elements 11, 12/12.1, or 13/13.1) using Publish+Share/Disc/DVD with the choice of Folder (4.7 GB) instead of Disc.

           

          If that is successful, you take the VIDEO_TS Folder only in the saved folder to DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc using the ImgBurn program.

          For troubleshooting purposes, please determine if you can get a successful burn to Folder (4.7 GB). And, please supply more information so that we can also troubleshoot the burn to disc.

           

          Any questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.

           

          Thank you.

            ATR,

             

            I was able to save videos to a folder – but not w/a menu.  But the issue was resolved via a support “chat” session. Apparently, two instances of the software  were launching at the same time.

             

            Thanks for your interest.

              Great news that online Adobe Chat was able to identify the problem, and you are moving forward with your projects.

               

              But, I am concerned about your comment that your burn to folder does not include menus if the project contained menus.

              If you have menus in the project destined for DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc and do the burn to Folder (4.7 GB), the VIDEO_TS Folder in the saved folder contains the file for the menus. And, when you take that VIDEO_TS Folder (just it) to a DVD disc with ImgBurn, the resulting DVD-VIDEO on DVD should play back including menus.

              If you want to go into that matter further, please let me know. We would need also to consider the player and its capability to play back menus. The VIDEO_TS Folder's file for the menus is typically  named VTS_01_0.VOB.

               

              Thank you for the follow up and the news of progress.

               

              Best wishes
