PowerPoint and MP3's

By ph ·
Using Powerpoint 2000 I am unable to link
slides to MP3 files for sound. This is on
a Toshiba laptop, Win98, WMplayer the latest.
The same version of powerpoint on a different
machine (Dell Desktop) does this fine. Very
frustrating. When you go to Insert, the
browse windows says "Sound Files" and lists
several extentions, but not MP3). On the
desktop, it just says "sound files". Any ideas?

Check the version of PowerPoint on both systems again. I know that PowerPoint 2000 will allow you to insert MP3 files, but I PowerPoint 97 does not. As you have pointed out, one machine just says "sound files" (this is what it says in PowerPoint 2000) and the other says "sound files" with some extension listed (this is what it says in PowerPoint 97).

HTH,
