DVD burning stops in the middle

Like the title says, when I try to burn DVDs in adobe premiere elements 3.0, they always get to the burning part and then freeze up. It’s not adobe because I got one to work I think by burning it as a disc type instead of a book type, but even now when I set the DVDs to disc type, they have the same problem and I have ended up with a couple of damaged disks. Besides setting it a disc type, when it worked I think I had under the drive’s recording tab, I had the enable recording tab checked but when I check it now it still doesn’t work. Please help!

This is with your LiteOn LH-20A1L burner with BL02 firmware, right? Just so others know.

  1. Try different software to completely eliminate Adobe Premiere from the equation. ImgBurn is free, or if you have Nero/Roxio try that.

  2. What media (discs) are you using?

  3. What speed are you trying to burn at?

Yes. It works in DVD Shrink 3.2. Is there any chance that Premiere Elements is not recognizing the disc as the right size because in DVD Shrink it burns as 4.24GB disc and in Adobe, it thinks it has 4.38 GB. And it is not DVD Shrink because on Nero it says the size of the disc and it either says it’s a 4.23 or 4.24 GB disc. Media is 8x Verbatim Hub Printable DVD-R. And in Adobe, it automatically burns at the highest speed, but I also burn at 8x in DVD Shrink (at least on these disks)

Good media. 8x is fine with your LiteOn with those discs, so no worries there.

It’s good that you tried Shrink with it, I would guess the problem is in Adobe Premiere Elements somewhere, but I’m not familiar with the software (perhaps someone else here is).

And setting the Booktype shouldn’t give you a problem with burning. Even though it only works on + media (+R/+RW/+R DL), and not the -R media you appear to be using :wink:

Is there any setting on Windows or something else that can be changed?

Would spin down time affect it because mine is 32 min ?

Or does anyone here know what I change in Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 ?

Create an image or iso as output, then burn that using IMGBURN!

if this helps anyone solve my problem now adobe had a message under burning disk 1 of 1 that said unknown error code 2130932483

I agree with chef’s suggestion above, maybe you could give it a try.

Another bonus with that method, is if ImgBurn encounters a problem, you can post the error log. :wink:

Okay I may have found my problem for I still need a solution. okay, when it starts to burn a DVD in Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0, instead of having the icon of a DVD-R in the drive in My Computer it changes to the regular dvd drive icon (the one that means it has has nothing in it) Please help!

That is never ever the problem here, its just a cosmetical flaw in windooze explorer.

Your problem seems to be a 3rd party driver/software which blocks the burner from recognizing the inserted media/MID!!

Do any how I can stop that?

Uninstall software like Alcohol, InCD, Daemon Tools…

I think I uninstalled software that might be controlling it but it still stops

Any ideas

Tried burning with Imgburn??

Premiere Elements 3.0 doesn’t make disc images, it just makes DVD folders.
