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.

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

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.
