Extended Bracket Mode problems

When I go into the Menu on my K20D and pick Rec Mode the Extended Bracket Menu is off and grayed out. I can not get to this menu. I have turned the the Auto Bracket in the Custom Menu. I tried the button on the Left side of the camera to use the Bracket fuction but again nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
Would like to try HDRI but I need this fuction to work.

Extended bracket doesn't work in RAW or RAW+. The extended bracket comes in the processing of JPEG, so it can't work with RAW. For true HDR, you need Exposure bracket, which works with either RAW or JPEG files.
