Why am I unable to use dragon souls to unlock dragon shouts?

Why am I unable to unlock my new shouts in skyrim? I'm using xbox and currently have 5 dragon souls. The new shout is learned and the first word is greyed out. If I try to unlock it using "X" button to unlock a pop-up says needs a dragon soul to unlock. Please help, thanks.

    @Flutter Except the answer to that question is "You're using the wrong button", and here the asker specifically says they are using X, which is the correct button for XBox. – bwarner Nov 9 '12 at 19:38

    @bwarner That argument has been made countless times, and the answer is always the same: Leave a comment on the other answer asking for an update. The correct course of action is not to ask a duplicate question. – Niro Nov 9 '12 at 20:21
  • Have you remapped your buttons? Many of Skyrim's UI screens won't update to reflect remapped buttons. For extra-special fun, remapped buttons also only works for some UI screens, so there are two ways that you and the game can disagree on what the right button is. – SevenSidedDie Nov 9 '12 at 21:06

You need to kill some dragons to get more souls and unlock new shouts.
