Sorry, it looks like I am writing a book of something. I felt I should explain what was happening and maybe it will make some sense. This is what I have done.
I downloaded the trial version of Scrapbook MAX about a week ago. If I could make the program work I think it would be terriffic and fun. I had made at least 25+ scrapbooks and when I publish them to video CD they will not run on my DVD player.The DVD player acts like it playing it, but there is no picture on the screen. If I publish them to photo CD the DVD player says no disc. I am using Windows XP on a HP Pavilion laptop computer with a DVD/CD-RW Drive.
About 4 days ago I make a scrapbook and had the scrapbook on one side of the screen and the Help user manuel on the otherside. Did everything they said. I left the page size at the default and I (out of the 3) chose one of the music names for the music. Then published it to video CD. Well, I was thrilled it worked (hated the music though). That was the only one that ever worked.
First I tried everything I could think of to get other music into the scrapbook-nothing. I wanted to use the extra large screen page size-that didn't work. Finally I thought, well I just won't add any music (I'd rather have quite than that noise)-that didn't work. Will not show on the DVD.
Last resort last night made another scrapbook, left the page size at their default and no music added-nothing, didn't work. Before I gave up and went to bed I tried one more thing for the heck of it(trying everything I can think of to figure this out). I made another new scrapbook using the default page size and chose one of the music choices and published to video CD. THE THING WORKED.
That's fine except I don't feel I have any choices at all. If I can't have decent music I would really prefer to have none and I can't even do that.
PS I didn't keep the scrapbooks to clutter everything up. When they didn't work I would erase the disc and delete the scrapbook before I started again. I wanted to started on a clean slate.
Do you have any ideas on what I am doing wrong. I really wanted to purchase this software, but there is no sense if I can't use it. Help.
