    How do I get around "Could not initialize disc burning engine"


      I've just spent ages trying to fix "sorry, a serious error has occurred that requires Adobe Premiere Elements to shut down.  We will attempt to save your current project"

      After trying umpteen different possible solutions,  I hit upon "access McAfee Security Center and turn off the real-time virus scanning".

      Phew that got me working again - now I'm trying to burn my movie, but I'm now getting "Could not initialize disc burning engine"


      There's been no problems up to now, I've burnt loads of movies before, with no problems.


      I've gone into device manager and disabled the DVD writer as per a couple of threads- rebooted but to no avail.  In the device manager the DVD status is "This device is working properly."


      What can I do to diagnose / resolve this?  Any help would be much appreciated as I'm getting somewhat frustrated now having had two problems on the trot.

      A bit of extra info:-

      My C drive has 287Gb capacity, with 39.6Gb free
      I'm on Vista Service Pack 2
      4Gb RAM
      Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 2.26GHz 32 bit o/s



      Thanks in advance.......
