Display the slide to which you want to add music or sound effects.
On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then do one of the following:

Click Sound from File, locate the folder that contains the file that you want, and then double-click the file.
Insert a sound clip from Clip Organizer

Click Sound from Clip Organizer, scroll to find the clip that you want, and then click it to add it to the slide.
Note To search for clips in the Clip Organizer, fill in the Search for box, and then click Go. To get more information about finding the clip that you want, including details about finding files by using wildcard characters and about adding your own clips to the Clip Organizer, click Tips for finding clips at the bottom of the task pane.

Double-click the sound file that you want to insert.
When a message is displayed, do one of the following:
To play the music or sound automatically when you go to the slide, click Automatically.
To play the music or sound only when you click the sound icon , click When Clicked.
To adjust the settings for when the sound file stops, click the sound icon , right-click, and then click Custom Animation.
In the Custom Animation task pane, click the arrow on the selected item in the Custom Animation list, and then click Effect Options.
On the Effect tab, under Stop playing, do one of the following:

To stop the sound file after this slide, select After current slide.
To keep the sound file playing for several slides, select After, and then set the total number of slides the file should play on.

Hope this helps :)

Gaby, powerpoint is tricky about music playing all the way through. An
easier way is to use Windows Movie Maker (I assume you are on a PC). WMM
comes with all PCs that have XP or Vista. Import your pictures & audio, drop
them into the timeline, add title screeen & credits if you wish, & then
choose the format at the end you want your video to be in.

I am the yearbook teacher and now that we are done with yearbook I want the
students to put together a slide show set to music that we can sell for
fundraiser at the end of the year. I'm fine putting a powerpoint together
but have no idea how to set it to music. Does anyone know what program I
would use for this and how I would put them onto DVD's.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
