Hi,
Are you referring to a default aero theme screen saver or did you add a third party theme ?
I usually use my own images to a aero theme and just point the screen saver to a folder with the files I want to use for it.

Hi,
What exactly happens ?
What is the timing you set it to activate ?
Which are you using Bubbles.... ?

I'd use Photos and point it to a folder with images in it set the timing and be done.
