Welcome to the forum.
It is more likely that PrE does not like some other burning software, that is installed. This ARTICLE will give you things to look at and for.
PrE looks for the burner at the OS-level, and if some other program has hooked it at bootup, and reported to the OS that it is, say a removable HDD, then PrE cannot use it.
One workaround, if one needs that other software, is to Burn to Folder, and then use a burning utility, like the great, free ImgBurn, to do the physical burn.
Thanks for the suggestions. I've printed the article, and am looking at each posibility.
I don't seem to have any of the software mentioned, and my antivirus (AVG) is not mentioned.
Is Bill says, it's pretty common for other software to block Premiere Elements' access to the burner.
There are registry tweaks that are supposed to fix this -- but they seldom work.
The best solution is to select the option to Burn to a Folder and then use another program (like Nero or, even better, ImgBurn) to burn the VIDEO_TS folder to a disc.
Thanks all... Burning to a folder, then using ImgBurn works like a charm.
