:) when I try to package slideshow to cd I get the message that the cd in drive is not writable, to insert another disk and try again. nothing happens.
have contacted microsoft but they said as it's a trial disk they can't enter into correspondence with me.

It's not really clear at this point if its a Power Point problem, a CDRW problem or a bad blank CD problem.

Have you tried more than one blank CD? Can you write to CD from other programs?

Welcome to TSG! ;)

no, on powerpoint page Sorry I don't understand this part

file-then click package to cd. there are no other instructions Just a WAG, but I bet the problem is trying to go directly to the CD

I'd try saving to HD and then try to burn to CD.

success after trying different makes of CD-RW disks I tried a cheap data only disk and it worked. Every time. I don't know why. maybe it has to be a data disk.
So thanks to everyone for their help, it was appreciated.
thanks.
