Can you still click and drag items into it?
If you've never tried it before, have your scrapbook pulled up in MAX. Open the folder your picture/background/embellishment is in (outside of SBM). Then click on the item you want, hold the mouse button down, and drag it over into MAX. If you're looking for things that came with your SBM program, they'll be in your program files\scrapbookMAX\gallery\images folder.
I'm not really a techie, but this might be a workaround so you can keep scrapping until one of them can help you with the problem.
One techie-like suggestion would be to try uninstalling and then reinstalling the program. Your work will still be there when you reinstall.
