I have a perfectly  good working version of Premier Elements 7 ( purchased years ago) now installed on a new PC with Windows 10.  Yes old but good enough for me. My Mini DV Camcorder is a Panasonic NV -GS 280.  Again old,  but a great camera.  I can down load a mini DVs taken years ago  into  Premieier Elemnts 7 using a firewire cable. In turn I can organise and edit the movie. When I come to burning a disc this is when the trouble starts. A message directs me to an Adobe web site to activate the function. Nothing!  I talk  to Adobe. They  say that 7 is no longer suported. I down load a trail version oe Elements 2020. This  does not support my camera. Does anybody have any good isdeas asto how I can burn a disc of a movie edited  and ready in Element 7?

As you've seen, Adobe no longer supports earlier versions of their programs. And that is a VERY early version of the program. So activation of these features isn't likely possible.

 

If you are able to burn a folder of your DVD files to your hard drive, we can certainly help you burn these files to a DVD disc. If the program is not able to create even these files, it may be necessary to work with a third party DVD creation program.

Thanks for this. Sorry I've been a litte slow in replying. When you say   'Burn a folder of your DVD files to your hard disc' what do  you actually mean by the word 'burn'?  Once I know what you expect me to do,  I'll give it a whirl. I am an 80 year old endeavouring to master Windows 10 functionality.

Set your Encore DVD/BluRay output to an ISO file or to a folder on your hard drive and then use something like the FREE https://www.imgburn.com/ to write files or folders or ISO to disc for DVD or BluRay (send the author a PayPal donation if you like his program - DO be sure to uncheck anything you don't want from the download site)

Encore is an obsolete program that is not related to Premiere Elements.

>no activation no iso

 

The original message only mentioned not being able to burn a disc... but I guess that also means not being able to create a folder as well
