    My wife created a calendar and a LOT of postcards on iPhoto '06 on the PowerBook this past week. When she clicks 'buy' on the lower right of the iPhoto window it shows 'connecting' but then nothing happens. She wants to order these but cannot.

    In contrast, I've began creating a photo album in iPhoto '06 on my iMac and when I click 'buy' it shows 'connecting' and then brings up a small order window for me to choose how many and log in to order the book.

    What could be the problem with her not being able to order from her iPhoto on the PowerBook? She spent LOTS of time on this and would rather not have to redo it on the iMac to be able to order. Any suggestions?

    Found the solution...for anyone having this problem follow these steps:

    1. Close iPhoto
    2. Delete the iPhoto app from the applications folder
    3. Make sure you leave this file intact so you can maintain your existing
    preferences:
    -Library - Preferences - com.apple.iPhoto.plist
    4. Reinstall iPhoto from your iLife '06 disk (iPhoto only in the custom installer
    area)
    5. Repair permissions (always do this after installing anything that requires
    a password
    6. Run iPhoto and you should be able to order now

    Hope this helps.

    That's odd that you had to do this but at least she didn't have to start all over again :)
