DVD plug in for Photostory problem

Have used Photostory many times to make DVDs of holiday photos etc. After updating my computer to Windows 7, I can still use Photostory but I can't make a DVD. I have tried to reinstall Sonic's DVD plug in for Photostory, but get the message that I need DirectX 8a or later. Have downloaded the latest version of that & still no luck. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Can you not just create your video and used dvd flick its free to author and burn to dvd DVD FLICK

Doesn't Win 7 come with DVD Maker (at least it does in mine) and couldn't you use that to burn your video?

I use it with XP and I see PS3 plug in from the website it seems to be only for XP

Thanks eedcam & GroupFC for your suggestions. Unfortunately, DVD Flick & Win & don't support Photostory - would have to start again from scratch.

RD are you saying photo story is incompotent and cant make a slide show or video and then export it in a proper format say avi or whatever .Gosh even WMM can do that

No eedcam - I made the story but, was trying to use the DVD plugin from Sonic to make the DVD. None of the other burn programs would recognise it in the format I had saved it. However, I have now saved it in the format for playing on a PC & EUREKA, have been able to burn the DVD using the Win 7 application.

Thank you everyone for your help - I'm sorted.
