If your computer is a brand name (Dell, HP, etc.) go to your manufacturer's web site's support area and download the drivers for your disc drive from that site rather than trusting Windows to provide them. This solves the problem the vast majority of times. (Though much depends on the version of the program you're using and your operating system.)
If it doesn't, you can use Premiere Elements to output an ISO file to your hard drive rather than burning directly to a disc. You can then use a program like the free download ImgBurn to burn a playable disc from the ISO, as I show you in my Muvipix.com tutorial.
