Do you have a "MY MUSIC" file on your computer?  It would be in My Documents File.  I add songs from my CD's to "My Music" as MP3 and use music I want to put in my photoshows.  You can't send MP3 photoshows over the internet however, but you can burn them on DVD or CDs. You may need a seperate program on your computer to add MP3 music. I love adding my own music to my photoshows, it makes them more professional and personal.

MJ are you using the on-line PhotoShow , Version 6 dektop or Version 5 desktop (where this post is)? I'm not sure you can add your own mp3 music in Version 5.

I am using the on-line Photoshow 5.  I add the MP3 songs to MY MUSIC in MY DOCUMENTS off of CDs that I have.  Then when I want to add music to my photoshows, I click on add MUSIC in Photoshow 5, then click on Choose MP3 music into my photoshows.  I use their music if I want to send photoshows over the internet.  I have this down to a tee, works great.

Ok, I undeerstand that you can add your music to Version 5 if you don't want them on the web site.  Thank you.  yes, I just learned how to do it.

In answer to the OP, you cannot add music directly from a CD (wav file); it has to be converted to an mp3 file.

Audicity is a free conversion program.
