How long have you waited before giving up? My experience with photobucket is that it can take a LONG time - I usually go do something else while the pics are uploading. It's not unusual for it to take 10 minutes, or even more. And I have pretty good bandwidth.

Are you on a home internet connection? Does your internet connection require a specific set of proxy settings or do you have specific proxy settings installed when they are not needed? :)
