drive, I can hear the sound.

Is the file saved in the same place as the presentation? If not, try putting
it there and reinserting it into the presentation. Since you mention it is a
WAV file, you could also try going to your PowerPoint options, on the
General tab, and increasing the number for "Link sounds with file size
greater than." Change the number to 50,000, and then re-insert the sound.
This is likely to get the sound embedded into the presentation so it doesn't
matter where the sound file is.
