need help w/sonic dvd for photo story... first time using and need HELP please

Question

i bought and installed the dvd for photo story. during the install, i got a message saying that i need to get updates at www.microsoft.com/directx/homeuser/downloads/default.asp. i went there and there are literally PAGES and PAGES of things i could download... i have no idea what i need.

 

so, i tried created a dvd w/o doing the update. photostory gives me the option for saving my story for playback on home dvd player, i select that, but then after the story is "built" and the "create a DVD" window pops up, i can not click in any of the spaces to name the dvd title, chose a drive, select a write speed, etc.

the photo story 3 i've had and it's working fine. i can view my slideshows on windows media player perfectly.

 

my problem is with the sonic dvd for photostory that i bought from roxio earlier today so that i can now burn a slideshow to a dvd. when the window pops up from sonic to make the dvd, i can't access any of the choices... the window stays grey and i can't get my curser inside.

 

need direction, please. thank you.

That program is from Microsoft; you will have to contact them for help. Roxio was bought out by Sonic and the program was modified by MS. You need to get help from MS.

 

Now, did you buy PhotoShow or PhotoSuite? Those are Roxio products.

 

You need to be clear so we can help you, no "Ya, whatever" attitude can get you ignored.

Hi Jodi,

Not sure if this is what you are asking about but, if you have Photo Story 3 for Windows and want to burn your story to a DVD to play on any DVD player you will need a Sonic PlugIn. The Microsoft website (where Photo Story3 is) has a link to the webpage where you can download the plugin. It costs about $30 I think.

Best of luck.
