    Export error


      When I go to make a DVD I keep getting this export error, Error compiling movie. You do not have permission to create or delete the output file. Does anyone know what I need to do to solve this error.

          Most probably, as it suggests, is a permissions problem. Start PRE by right-clicking the shortcut and selecting 'Run as administrator' and see if that makes a difference. If you are you saving to a network drive that may introduce another layer of security.


          If these suggestions don't work we will need a lot more information about your computer and clips - see this: Got a Problem? How to Get Started

            If that doesn't it, you'll need to tell us more about your video project, what your source files are, etc.


            The FAQs to the right of this forum include troubleshooting steps for DVD burns. If you'll post your results for each step IN AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSSIBLE we may be able to diagnose your problem and recommend solutions.

              One of the very important aspects will be your OS, and the security settings in place. Each version of Windows has different security modules and settings, so this is very important.


              The use of anything network related is also very important.


              I agree with Neale, that this is likely a security setting, but it could be at different levels, and in different places. The more that you can tell us, the easier it will be for someone to point you right to the cause, and offer methods for correcting that.


              Good luck,

                  Thank you for the information.


                  What brand of blank media are you using?


                  Good luck,

                      Otherwise, all we can do is offer general advice.


                      Also, have you seen our FAQ on working with MOD files and are you using this work method?

                        I do not know the Sony media, but the other two are about as bad as it gets. I strongly recommend either Verbatim, or Taiyo Yuden, for any video DVD burning. This ARTICLE goes into more detail.


                        Good luck,
