Sigh...I wish. It's 51.8 M in size so too big for me to email. Plus the powerpoint presentation has been told that the file is in that spot on my hard drive and therefore, even if I could email the music, it wouldn't know where to look.

Anyone have any suggestions for how to cut down the size of a music file?

you couldn't put it in a zip file to send??

do you have Nero?? or roxio??

Yes. But she'd have to delete the file name that's attached and add the new one--and I'm not sure if she has powerpoint.

Do you have powerpoint, rainbow?

I have Nero. Every time I try to run it my machine freezes. It's an old version and the upgrades were too big for me to download

I think I have a way to fix it, but now I gotta go make dinner. I'll do a little more and when we're done with dinner.

That would be good! LOL

However, I fixed it, burned a couple more CDs and will send it out as soon as I can get into town. I emailed the other person I'd mailed it to, and she said hers didn't play music either. So she's gettin' the other one!

It's the somewhere over the rainbow rendition/medley done by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole.

I don't have a zip program.

You mean the slide file? Not when it's over 14 M in size.

If rainbow can copy the song from online to her My Music folder, the presentation on the CD might be able to locate it.

Hazel, you can resize music files right in Windows Media Player, which you would have free on your computer if you have Windows. Import the song, drag to the timeline, and resave to your computer at a smaller size. I do this all the time. Otherwise Megaupload is a site you can upload it to and Rainbow could download it from. However, with your dial-up 70MB could take you several hours to upload, LOL! But it would be doable. I upload and share files as large as 350MB with Megaupload all the time. Their limit is 500MB.

How are you going to set up the timing?

Probably easier for me to just mail the new CD. It only costs a couple of bucks.

One of these days you'll have to talk me through this, Smiley! I've been looking at Media Player, and now I'm still intrigued and still totally lost.

I hate technology...

Hazel I Think Maybe with Sound recorder? (Comes with Windows) Under accessories

if you play the song while sound recorder is recording you can do it that way.

That is how I have done it

I knocked both ends off it. Sounds okay in the beginning but can't get the fade back in the end where I truncated it.
