So neither of the Widescreen settings will Export. Is that correct? Do any other Export setting work?
If none do, then a few questions:
What are the pixel x pixel dimensions of the still images?
Do you perhaps have any gaps in the Video, say where a still did not quite butt up to the one before it? Perhaps this ARTICLE will provide some tips. Be sure to see the link to Ann Bens' tutorial, down that article to find and remove any gaps.
As a test for gaps, one could create Transparent Video (New Icon>Transparent Video), put that onto an empty Video Track above the existing Video and still, then expand its Duration to the full Timeline. Does it now Export fine?
You are exporting into a DV format which is SD (4:3)
The wide screen option in "dv " is still only SD
Yes other export options work, but not widescreen.

So, what should I choose instead? I am new to Premiere, so now I am running in to things I thought would be easy, but I guess I have no clue.
How can I get this to be widescreen for viewing full screen on a 27" computer monitor. And, how will I get widescreen for export to DVD to play on widescreen tv?
Instead of wide screen ...lets call it 16:9.
For Q1. Export it as a a QT , an MPEG ,H264... anything that gives you a 16:9 option in the encode and will play on your computer ( Windows ? Mac?).
For Q2 Easy way is to export direct link to Encore from your time line. This will produce your DVC without much input from you. It will give you an undersdtanding of DVD as well.
Hmm... my source is AVCHD (read http://forums.adobe.com/thread/652694?tstart=0 message) and I just select the NTSC Widescreen output setting (could be DV NTSC Widescreen, I don't have PPro open) and all works well to create a DV AVI file

Well, it turns out that I have been able to download to widescreen now, but it cuts
off the end of the video, about 30 seconds or so.
