burning slideshow to dvd
I had the same problem. Also being a newbie - as well as stubborn, I spent weeks trying to figure it out.
I was at best buy one day and found a product by Magix called photostory for $20.00.
I worked like magic (no pun intended) and it was so easy to use, that I now have quite a few home made videos. I am sure that if I could do this, so can you. For the price, you cant go wrong.
The down side is you can never get an answer from them on technical issues.
Good luck, and have fun
