I'll jot down the basic setting you need just in case something there might be the issue.
Slide Show Settings:
Enable Slideshow of Elements? Checked (Enables Slider)
Slide Container Height (0 = auto) "0"
Slide Transition Effects "fade" (Other effects are "curtainX,turnUp,slideY,zoom,scrollRight")
CSS Class For Slide Container div (leave blank)
Randomize slide sequence? Un-checked (Check to Randomize the slider sequence)
Use extra clear type corrections in slides? Checked (Smooths things out, should generally be left checked)
Pause Slideshow on Hover? Un-checked (Check to pause slider when you hover over it)
Slide Duration In Milliseconds "3000"
Slide Transition Speed "1000" (In Milliseconds)
Enable Slideshow Pager? Un-checked (Check for numbered navigation, will render below slider)
Place Pager above Slideshow? Un-checked (Check to place Navigation above slider)
As for the file browsing, I'm not entirely sure if I know what you are asking. If you could take a screenshot and link to it I could take a look at it.
I hope this helps get you going in the right direction, if not I'm sorry.
Have a good day,
