I'm assuming you mean that the Burn button is grayed out.
Which version of the program do you have and on what operating system?
How long is your DVD movie?
Are you able to burn the DVD files to a folder or ISO image on your hard drive?
Yes its grayed out. It's 1 hour and 8 minutes long and I did burn it to a
folder but that ended up not being useful
It could be that your DVD burner or the disc in it is not registering with the program.
In any event, burning your DVD to a folder DOES accomplish something. It gives you files you can now burn to a DVD using a program like ImgBurn. I've got a free tutorial on the free download ImgBurn on Premiere Elements support site Muvipix.com.
