What are the pixel x pixel dimensions of those Still Images?
When your burner says "No Media," what brand of blank BD disc are you trying to burn to?
i was told the maximum that Premiere Elements could use was 1080x1920 pixels, so because i have assembled both horizontal and vertical pictures and some of them had been cropped, the smallest dimension was usually the 1080 pixels, and most of them were like 1080x1550, or 1080x1440 range! I had resized them to be less than the 1080x1920 range, but not all the same size.
I used a Verbatim 50GB 6x BD-R DL disc.
My other question that is really big to me right now, is how much memory do you really need to successfully burn blu rays or to a folder? I was reassurred by everyone that the 8GB RAM was plenty to do that, but it really doesn't appear to be, and why is everything getting so very slow with that project, whereas the other features on the computer are not equally slow.
Thanks for your reply, Hunt, and i appreciate any help i can get.

Those Still Image sizes should not be an issue.
As for RAM, if one has Win7-64 (or Vista-64), then 8GB should be OK (though 12GB would be better, depending on the RAM that the MoBo takes). Now, if there is an issue, you might want to bump up your Windows Virtual Memory, should you be running low on RAM.
Also, Verbatim is about as good as it gets. Is there a newer firmware update for your BD burner? If so, look into upgrading that, but be sure to read the instructions carefully, and it will change from model to model and make to maek. Read carefully.

Create an ISO (Encore) or folder on your hard drive (Encore or Premiere Elements) and then use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write files or folders or ISO to disc
(send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program)
Check your driver vendor for a firmware update
Thanks for all the ideas. I need to digest it all. I appreciate your inputs tremendously. I feel 'helpless' right now. having what i thought was an okay job and a finished product except for being able to finalize it in disc form!!!!! Frustrating to say the least.
Write your output to a folder on your hard drive, and use the free Imgburn to write the folder to disc
If that works, you at least have a way to get your output to disc, albeit with an extra step
Thanks John, and does it matter to you which format i should output the project to my hard drive as? mpeg for high definition? And no problem using Imgburn to a blu ray? I am just worried about the memory issue to get it transferred to my hard drive or to the disc, based on the pop-ups that my 'memory is extremely low'. This shall be one of my projects when everyone says i have enough memory!!!
You all are helping so much, i think there is hope that i will understand this program, at least a little better than i do now.
You do not select what kind of file you output when you tell PreEl to write a DVD or BluRay folder on hard drive for later burning to disc... the DVD or BluRay format is part of the specification
Put a Hollywood DVD or BluRay in your computer drive (stop autoplay when it starts, you don't want to play the movie) and then use Windows Explorer to go LOOK at what is on the disc
When you tell PreEl to write your DVD or BluRay folder to your hard drive, you will have the same file structure and file types as a Hollywood disc
You then use Imgburn to write that entire file folder to disc
