Which version of the program are you using and on what operating system?
What model of camcorder is your original video coming from and what format and resolution is it?
Which operating system do you have and with how much RAM? How much free, clean, freshly defragmented space is on your hard drive?
Panasonic HC-V520 recording at HG1920.
Windows 7 i7 16gb ram with 273gb free space.
Does your timeline have any blank spots with no video or do you have a Stop Marker at the end of your movie? Both can cause a transcoding error.
I have a couple of black slides but no blank spots or areas with no video. No Stop Marker.
I have burnt a blu-ray disc without any problems it's just when trying to create a normal dvd I have problems.
Can you output an MPEG using Export & Share/Devices/Computer with the SD480 resolution and MPEG-PS as the format?
No, I receive a message 'Error compiling movie. You do not have permission to create or delete the output file'. Although I can create a MP4 file.
Go to Premiere Elements' Preferences (under the Edit menu on a PC) and, on the Media page, click the button clean the Media Cache. Then exit the program.
In Windows, run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter. The restart Premiere Elements and try outputting that MPEG again.
The only reason I can imagine that you can output an MP4 but not an MPEG is that MP4s are smaller files. It's actually more work for your computer to create an MP4!
Hopefully this will clear out whatever is choking your program. I mean, assuming you've manually gone to Windows Update and downloaded the non-critical updates that don't download automatically, etc.
Actioned Media Cache Clean.
Running a Samsung SSD with trim enabled to no need to defrag. carried out Disk Cleanup.
Tried again after restarting Premiere Elements but received the same message 'Error compiling movie. You do not have permission to create or delete the output file'.
Windows is fully updated including non-critical updates.
I really don't know what could be the cause, David. It might be time for you to contact Adobe Tech Support.
ok Steve. Thanks very much for you help and advise. Kind regards Dave
For Disc export, Dolby codec is used and for this royalty need to be activated.
There are 2 ways to activate royalty :
1) If you are connected to network, then, royalty would be activated automatically.
2.) If automatic is not working,then, you will be prompted for offline royalty activation as shown below :
Copy the serial number and go to mentioned website and paste code shown in Unlock key and click on OK.
If royalty is not activated,Trancoding Error will occur
Can you delete below mentioned folder from your system after closing PRE ?
After deleting, relaunch PRE and then try the same process. Let's see if issue still persists...

If after deleting ARA folder it doesn't work, then it's a permission issue.

First of all thank you very much for your help.
I have now sorted the problem by using the AVCHD tab. I can only assume that because the original video is high quality the programme would not allow burning a normal DVD iso file. I also had to change the 'Type' setting to 'ISO Image (8.5gb)' as it would not allow 4.7gb.
