Adding Tracks To Slideshow

Question

I am adding music to my slideshow and need to add 3 tracks. One of these is 151 seconds long but I can only get it to play about two thirds of this. I am able to play it right through on windows media player. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you Grandpabruce but I have tried that and it hasn't made any difference.

Maybe you need to explain exactly what you are doing.

I have made a slideshow and added transitions etc. Now added music and needed to add 3 tracks to match length of pictures. Two of the tracks work, as on previous occasions when I have made these slideshows, but the third one stops before it gets to the end of the track. I tried putting this on another slideshow (just one track this time) to see whether it would be OK but it was still the same. I have also played this several times using media player and it plays right to the end. I looked in the help section and tried to lengthen the track, as suggested, but that didn't work either. I also added the tracks and didn't click on the fit to music button - but it was still the same. It doesn't sound too bad as it is but I would prefer to be able to use the whole track if I can.

 

Thanks for your help.

Then there is something wrong with the music clip, even if it does play in WMP. Is it a .wav file? Can you get a fresh copy of the same clip from your CD, or wherever you got it from?

 

If it is from a CD, rip it to your hard drive as a .wav file.

Thanks again grandpabruce - I followed your advice and ripped another copy of that track from the CD and it is now working perfectly. :)
