CDex and PFCExpress not solving the e-mail MP3s problem for me

Sorry to be setting up a new post with a query I added on end of my last
post. This is because it's urgent and I thought this subject would indicate
the kind of query a lot better.

I have tried John Wilson & Austin Myer's suggestions but neither work for me.

I have installed CDex and when I tell it to convert --> Add Riff-Wavs header
it comes up with the error message:

Extention of file C:\Documents and Settings\Phil\Desktop\Music
Files\Chosen\Worktogether does not match MPEG Layer Tag, File conversion has
been aborted Invalid MP3 file

Yet if I tell windows to search for *.mp3 these files come up in search
results

------------------
PFCExpress
Even if I put the PPS file and MP3 files in the same directory, working
perfectly using the original files.........after I have used the addin, when
I
open the "kind of zipped" presentation......the MP3's don't come on.
-----------------
I would rather the CDex method because the final product is a lot
neater/more concise. But I'm so desperate that either solution would be
great.

Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Phil

I am happy to try and sort it but there would be a (small) charge. Email me
if you want it done

I think it's inevitable the method of payment would require me giving my bank
details..........I'm not quite desperate enough to do that!

Phil,

Using PFCExpress can you send me the presentation? I would like to see what
is happening.

Phil,

As you are discovering, all MP3 files are not created equal. Currently
there are three major codecs used in MP3's and I don't know how many minor
ones exist. I suspect CDex is failing because it can't properly decode the
file. (I am not a fan of CDex for this and a couple other reasons.)

I am curious, why are you using the zip feature instead of sending it as
email?

It's because I prefer how the zip feature makes it arrive at the recipients
computer as 1 attachment rather than 4 attachments. A)It naturally looks
neater B)The company have specifically said they are looking for conciseness

Hmm, ok. So when you use the zip feature what files are in the zip file?
Second, are you extracting EVERYTHING from the zip file before trying to
play the presentation? If you try to run the presentation from within the
zip it will NOT work.

When I installed CDex it came up with the message:

Failed to load the wnaspi32.dll driver
Use the "Native NT SCSI library" driver option instead?
I clicked yes


Is there something else I should have done?
