Menus, Orders And More

Question

I've used Roxio software for years, so I'm baffled by what I've encountered on a new computer. It shipped with EM-9 and I thought it would be a breeze to create a quick and simple DVD. But:

--there are only three themes available and they're all horrible (trust me, only 3 in the Video-UI9-content-dvd-4x3-themes folder: beach, bouquets, seasons)

--more styles available by download button links to the roxio home page; no "9" downloads in sight

--basic options are not (example: "make all menus still"--text is grayed out)

So a question: is this just not a fully functional version of the software? If I uninstalled and reinstalled from the CD that shipped with the computer, would I have more choices? Or should I just give up and buy something else?

All I want to do is this:

Make a basic menu with buttons that show a still frame from each video.

Put that basic menu over a solid color, still background.

No audio with menus.

Have the menu items display in exactly the order I put them in.

I've tried the Windows DVD Maker that also shipped with this computer and it won't do these simple things either.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Since your "9" came with your computer it is an OEM version and has many features disabled. If you want all features you will have to buy the full version
