It may be the file type that you've saved is not compatible with your DVD recorder.

Check the instructions on your DVD recorder, see what kind of files it plays ie JPEG, MPEG1 and MPEG2 then either save your file as one of these or download a file converstion programme from such as :- Any Video Converter 3.05
for free.

I created a slide show with photos, text and music. The preview looks and sounds great. And the burning to the disk appears to have happened (I can see the ridges in the disc). However, when I go to play...

I have also recently had a problem related to SlideShow Expressions and eventually turned to Individual Software's technical support team for help. I did get help and my problem was solved. You can find them at You have to register your product in order to get help, but it's all free and I recommend it.
However, I'm going to run you through some pointers I've picked up along the way.
Firstly, make sure that your computer meets all the necessary requirements as given on the box and in the User's Guide (included in pdf-format on the install disc). For example, it may be that you have Windows Media Player, but that you need a later version of it. The requirements for SlideShow Expressions involves certain versions of specific media players - these can be downloaded from the web. Also have a look at chapter 3 of the User's Guide (section 3-3) for all the supported file formats (audio, photo's and video). And, yes, DVD+R should work just fine.
Originally, I also suspected my computer (Dell) and my writer drives, but it turned out that the software can sometimes develop difficulties. The following may not apply to your situation, but I'm going to tell you about it anyway, since I believe in the product and I know what it's like to be frustrated making slide shows.
My problem was related to the size of the photos I used and the length of my projects. One can make rather lengthy projects with SlideShow Expressions, which is great, because most other software brands don't allow you to do that. I've successfully burned slide show projects containing up to about 390 photos, using the original sizes (averaging around 300-400 KB, but also including photos of over 1MB and 2MB). (I have a 305 photos large project containing only photos above 1MB each as well, burned successfully.) I hit a problem though with a project of 466 photos in total. It turned out that when moving into this kind of length, the size of your photos needs to be smaller for the software to be able to run correctly. In the end I had to resize all the photos that were over 1MB. I ended up with my largest photo being at 440 KB before I could successfully burn the project. Resizing your photos doesn't necessarily reduce the quality of the photos in your project, though. Really, I can tell no difference between the original sizes and the resized photos in my project. I used Microsoft Office Picture Manager to resize. Also, I was told by Individual Software's technical support team that the option to archive your original photos and music files on the DVD as well, has been linked to burning problems, but this seems to occur mainly when your projects are rather large. I eventually opted for adding a Data CD with the original photos (as an extra) to my slide show project. In this way the project looked great, and the family could copy from the CD containing the original sizes.
Well, maybe some of this will help. I really recommend contacting the technical support people though. Good luck with your project and don't give up - the end result is going to be great. From: 11407336.

Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-5540A decoder

If you are using windows with anything less than windows vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate, DVD capabilities are not built in. For example if you using windows XP or vista home basic DVD will not play. You need a decoder. You have a few options. 1. Buy a decoder pack. 2. Download a DVD player software like cyberlink trial version, install it and check how it is functioning for a few days. Buy and install a DVD player software. However, if you upgraded your compuer recently by adding a DVD drive, you may have recieved a Driver CD disk. Check that disk. check whether a trial version of any DVD player software is included. Most chances are there will be one. Once you got everything fine you can call the customer support for the DVD player software and if you are willing to pay, they will provided you with a key or serial number that will change the status of trial version to a fully working version.

IDVD movie opens before menu when played on DVD player

In your iDVD project go into the DVD Map menu.
(Little flow chart like icon in the bottom-middle of the iDVD menu screen.)

Look for the very first icon in the map. (Upper left)
This has a small DVD symbol and a play icon on it.
Delete this icon.
Re-burn your DVD.
The menu should be shown first now when you play the DVD.

Will not play disk comes up no disk

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

The CDs won't play on any of my DVDs

Most CD/ DVD writing programs I have used ask, "Do you want to use this disk on other devices and computers?" or words to that effect. All you need to do is just put a check in the box. This happens when you are ready to remove the CD or DVD from the drive. Then the program runs a "Finalizing" program before the disk automatically ejects.

Adding music to a powerpoint presentation

Does the music file play when you click on it? (Drag the sound icon someplace visible on your slide and preview it.)

If it does play when you click on it, you just need to animate the music. The sound file has to be a part of your slide animation--that's what tells it when to start/stop playing. When you insert a sound file, PPT may ask you whether you want it to start automatically or wait to be clicked.

Or, you can right-click an existing sound file and go CUSTOM ANIMATION. Depending on your version of PPT, what happens next will be different. But you should be able to set the sound file to play when the slide displays without being clicked.
