I'm a Roxio retard

Apparently I'm too dumb to work this magic Roxio easy DVD creator basic kit, even with words like easy and basic in there.

So I got this NEC DVD burner that someone here rcommended, and it comes with this Roxio software that is too complicated for my tiny pea brain.

I made a simple DVD title menu, with a still photo background and all five of my short films easily selectable (each a separate title). In the preview mode, this works fine, each time you select a movie and click play, it plays. When I try to actually burn the DVD, I get a "Error: some titles are empty" message. Apparently I'm doing something wrong.

On my title menu, I made five new titles, and in each, I inserted a short film using "insert/add photo video." Am I completely going about this the wrong way? DVD creation is completely new to me, so I wouldn't be surprised.

I assume the product came with a manual? If so, did you read it?
Most include a getting started section that gets you going on the
propert use of the product. It may also have some bugs (which
is what it sounds like), did you get the latest update for your version?

You aren't the retarded one... It's Roxio. I have tried to use their burning programs before, and think its garbage. Mine would crash whenever I tried to drag a file to burn.

No, doesn't come with a manual.

I got it figured out though, it was just me not understanding some basics. I had all the titles in title menu 1 with at least one item, but I didn't have anything in my intro. Once I put something in there, it was fine. The program actually works fine for me. I don't understand why it takes so long to burn something once you've already burned it once. . .seems like it should just be able to reuse the files it just rendered.
