Videowave 7 Slideshow Problem

Question

My first attempt at making slideshow production! I made four of last year's holidays - complete with music, transitions etc - and all went well. However, I put them into "My Pictures" pending later burning to DVD. Now, some weeks having passed, I tried to bring them back into Videowave for final editing and transfer to DVD Builder. But I get the message: "Unable to preview selected Production. The Production is missing files. Please edit and locate the missing files" On trying to do this, I get a further message: "The Production cannot be previewed because it contains one or more invalid files. Required playback components may be missing from your system, or files may be corrupt". What has happened? So far as I know, I've done nothing to the files since putting them into "My Pictures", where they are displyed as "Roxio DMSM". I really would appreciate any help in resolving this situation. Thanks!

the dmsm file is just a list of your source files, their locations as well as the transitions and effects used to create your slideshow. It does not contain any actual image file simply the editing instructions etc. The original sources files should still be in the locations where they were when you created the project. If you moved or deleted the source files you will have to restore them to their locations or relink them to their new locations.
