MX-1 burst shooting mode

I just got an MX-1 a few days ago. So far I have been figuring out the mostly intuitive menu. In that I already own a K-5 there are some similarities. One thing that has me stumped so far is the continuous shooting menu. I have it set to shoot RAW and when attempting to access the continuous shooting icons the burst 1 and burst 2 are ghosted or greyed out. I don't know if I need to be in a different setting to access them or what it is that I am missing or not understanding. I found very little help in the manual.
Any help with this question and overall continuous shooting advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Continuous raw shooting is very limited on the mx1. As far as I recall there is only one burst mode that gives you 6 shots at 1.5fps. The continuous low and hi modes should therefore be greyed out.

Low and Hi burst shooting modes are only avalable when you are shooting JPGs with the MX-1
