Can't create new DVD

Hello
I have roxio easy media creator 7 installed along with roxio easy media creator 6.

On 7 when I go to create new DVD I get this error.

"It has been detected that your display adapter does not fully support direct X 9.0 3D features. This Application requires these features in order to run. This problem can usually be resolved by updating your display driver. Please vist your graphics card manufacturers website and download an updated driver."
OK I have 3DFX Voodoo 3 display adapters and I don't think updates are avalable and I don't know who makes it. I have windows XP pro installed on here.the tower I beleave is a AMD the moniter is a Sony trinitron multiscan 200sx with a hewlett packard keybord and hewlett packard mouse.

The video card looks to be pretty old: on the order of 5+ years. (?) I did find this site for picking up tweaks that might help

It LOOKS like your burning program is saying it wants Microsoft Direct X version 9: Have you tried going to the Microsoft site using IE and updating your PC? This would be under non-security related updates. It might take multiple updates/reboots, but also might resolve this issue.

Just because you got a good bargain, does not mean you got a good computer. You may not be able to run this program.
