two solutions

the easy one is just click flaten image then safe as .dds (but be carfull that you not save the flaten image as .psd it will remove all your layers)

the other is add a layer and use making brackground from layer then you can also save as .dds

add a empty layer then use make background from layer while the empty layer is marked
what .dds format you try to save ?? dxt1 or dxt5 ? try dxt1

I can't even get to that bit because it says too many channels to export (5) before that screen :(

open your .psd go in ps at the top, Layer---->add new layer, then go again to Layer--->make background from layer, then go and save it as .DDS
will work for sure Dan

Maybe a bit late here, but I also had this problem. I found it it was because I had saved a selection under the select menu, which also creates a new channel. If you look at your channels it will have the colours as well as any selections you have saved. So I deleted them and finally got back to the DDS options screen. Maybe this can help someone :cool:

BTW, Michaels tip worked. Adding the background layer is a nice way to keep from flattening the image before every save, thanks Michael :thumbup:
