I noticed your project has a ridiculous name. Change that first in Window Explorer.
Also, are you able to output your DVD files to a folder or ISO file on your hard drive rather than burn directly to disc? Errors that occur in the final stage of a disc burn usually indicate a problem interfacing with your disc drive.
In answer to ANN Bens, everytime I save the project, it goes into the autosave file, and I am in the hundredth version of it! If I try to change the file numbers to a new name it gives me a warning that if I change the file extension, then I won't be able to access it anymore. Not sure how to resolve that.
In response to Steve, when I hit the publish menu in premier, it gives me several options, I tried all of those options and got various errors. How would I do what you are telling me what to do? Are you suggesting to save it outside of Premier? Hpw would I do that?
File/Save as... and redirect to an location you can easily find it back.
Too long names or too many dashes and dots can cause errors.
Do you have any blank spots on your timeline that do not include video?
Do you have a Stop Marker at the end of your movie?
If you to the Preferences (Under the Edit menu on a PC) and uncheck Hardware Accelaration, does it make a difference?
How long is your movie? What model of camcorder is your original footage coming from and what format and resolution is the video?
How much free, clean, freshly defragmented space is on your hard drive?
I do not have any blank spots
I did not put in a stop marker. Should I?
I will try to uncheck the hardware accelaration
The movie is 1 hour and forty minutes
The movie is primarily from a camera, mostly pictures from a standard canon camera, and the videos are from that camera as well/
How do I know the format and resolution?
The hard drive has 750 Gb (3/4 of the original terabyte are clear)
There is no place that says hardware acceleration (version 12.1 of premier)
capture format is hdv
editing mode is avchd 720p square pixel
time base is 25 fps
1280 pixels Horizomtal and 720 Vertical
Are you saying that you're editing 1280x720 video you've captured over a FireWire connection from an HDV tape-based camcorder?
Your project settings should match your video specs.
