Red face Help Needed for Computer Dummy

Can someone explain to me in "easy to understand" terms how to fix my problem?

I have a cd that plays the video okay but not the music. What do I need to do to fix my computer settings?

Just to clarify, it's a CD of a powerpoint presentation with a large music file (51.8 M) imbedded. Total size of the powerpoint package was about 76 M if I'm remembering correctly... It was packaged with the powerpoint player.

No error messages?

Is it starting up automatically (which is how it played on my machine) or do you have to start it up in another software program?

Oh, crap. I hope the cold didn't fry the CD. Is that possible?

Hmmmm... Try this. Put in the CD and let it start, then hit ESC. The show should stop. Then click on My Computer and when that comes up, right click on the CD drive with the disk still in there and tell me what you see.

I hope I included the music file!
