Adding Music To Power Point Slideshow???

Post by Luvs2BSpoild » Fri, 21 Apr 2006 10:05 am

Hi there!

Hoping someone out there can 'point' me in the right direction... (no pun intended)... :roll:

Not having much experience with Power Point, I am however, able to set up a slide show. I know that you can sync the timing of the slide show with music and I know how to set up the slide show and play the music from a CD... but... is there a way that I can apply the music to the actual disc on which I have the slide show, rather than having to play them both separately???

Hope this makes sense...

Well, the easiest way would be to save your music file as a WMA or WAV file on the disk that contains the PPS and call that file, rather than play a CD.

By default, sounds are automatically linked to your file, rather than embedded in it, if they are greater than 100 KB in size. You can change this default to be more or less than 100 KB. When your presentation has linked files, you must copy the linked files as well as the presentation if you are going to be giving the presentation on another computer.


1. Save your PPT in a folder.
2. Create a sub-folder called "sounds" or "music"
3. Place your music files there
4. Use those files in your PPT
5. Copy the whole PPT/PPS and the "sounds" folder to a disc.
