There are a number of people having issues trying to create standard DVDs from AVCHD files. The problem seems to be related to the fact the AVCHD files are some of the most challenging to work with anyway -- and the challenge of downsampling them to standard DVDs seems to overwhelm most systems. At least the way Premiere Elements downsamples -- which has always been its biggest liability.
This is probably compounded by the fact that you're using a 64-bit operating system, which the program isn't built to run on.
I'm assuming you're using a project set up for AVCHD and that you're using an adequate system (quad-core, 4 gigs of RAM, not a laptop) for working with these files.
I'm a big supporter of Premiere Elements. I have been since before I became host of this forum, 5 years ago. But, if you're planning to edit AVCHD and use it to output standard DVDs, I'm just not sure it's the best program for you.
Thanks for the reply, Steve, but the problem is not with avchd. Today I tried to burn standard .avi videofiles, and get the same problem.
I have also tried to burn Blueray projects, but no matter what I do I get the requester with "Disc burning error - could not start disc burning project".
So it seems there is some kind of error in the program itself.
I've also uninstalled Roxio Creator 2009 to see if that helped, but it didn't.
Btw, my friend who recommended Premier Elements 7 has burned avchd to dvd's without any problem, and he has the same camera as me (Canon HF100) and his computer specs are equal to mine (Windows vista 64-bit, Intel 6850 dual-core cpu, 4 Gb ram and large hd's).
Can anyone help me with this problem, please?
Because of the number of possible issues and the amount of troubleshooting it might take to figure out which solution works for you, it might be best for you to contact Adobe Tech Support.
