Thank you again for your response, appreciate it.
Sorry, forgot to add my graphics card which is a 128 MB ATI Radeon. My free memory in my computer is now at 11.8 GB...which according to you response is not enough. I also have an external Pioneer writer and an external 500 gb Hard Drive, however, my photos are all in my computer and I am afraid to move them to the external drive since they now will have another address. MyDVD will not be able to access them once I move them out of my computer to another place. I am more than halfway through this project.
The only way I can see moving the photos to the external drive is to start my project all over again. Am I correct?
