Inserted Music Won't Play

Using Power Point 2003. I created a new photo album and inserted
approximately 55 individual pictures with each picture on one slide with a
title. I then did a view>slide master so that I could set a constant
background.

Now I have a song track (.wma file) that I want to play over the first 11
slides. On Slide 1 which is a title slide with title and subtitle, I
insert>sound from file and select the wma file I want.

Then I right click on the sound icon and choose custom animation. I select
it to start with previous and set the effect options to stop playing after
11 slides.

Problem is that the sound won't start playing!! I've tried setting it to
start after previous with no time delay and with a half second time delay
and everything else I can think of just to see if I can get the sound to
begin playing. I've even tried using different sound files (all of them
are .wma) but to no avail. No sound!!

Any suggestions??

The wma file will be linked, is the path to the file short?

Another posssibility if you ripped the file from a CD is that it has DRM
protection. If it has it will not play in PowerPoint. You may be able to find
an answer using Google.--
