    Exporting a Soundtrack (2000/SR1)

    I have made a really cool presentation, with a soundtrack that plays over the whole show. I'm really happy with the way it came out. Now, here is my problem. I want to export the presentation to a CD, along with the music and I can't seem to be able to do it. I've looked on the site and probably using the wrong search phrases but is there a way to do this? Thanks for any help you can provide.

    You haven't told us the format of the music and whether it is on a CD or not. But here are some useful links from within and outside of the lounge. So here in no particular order:

    Just make sure that your sound file is in the same folder with your presentation before you insert it into the presentation. That will create a relative link so that the PPT file can find the sound file on the CD.

    When you burn the files to CD, burn the contents of the folder to the CD--you don't need to put the folder itself on the CD, though. Include both the presentation and the sound file, of course.
