Default Power point and playing music

have PP 2000 SP-3

Have a slide show set up and trying to incoeporate music primarily throug a
mp3 file, (possibly a cd).
Originally when I tried to get the mp3 to play via ... Insert, music .. I got a msg of some sort saying, can't support or play mp3 file.....j
Eventually I did get it to play, but is seems to be associated with only one
of the slides, I'm assumning the one I had up at the time. So when I play the show, no music until it comes to that slide then it plays it, but doesn't go to the
next slide until the music is done, not what I wanted.

So here is what I want,
1) the music to start when the show starts.
2) how to play mp3 or from a CD
3) play several mp3's, e.g., one song for the first 10 slides then a different
song for the next 10, etc....

Any tips would be appreciated.

Hello, I'll check it out in more detail, it looks like it says I can do it, but I'm not sure it gives specifics on how to have it run for the whole show as opposed to a single slide ... ?
