Powerpoint >> Saving a show to CD

I have today, for the first time, saved a PowerPoint
presentation to CD for use on a projective clients laptop
so that I could give the show without the need to set up
my projector, laptop etc etc.

It was a disaster!

All the pictures were replaced by white boxes with a red
cross in. When I use the same CD on the original machine
all is fine again!

What has caused this and how do I get over the problem in
the future when I want a CD copy of a presentation.

Bummer. How, exactly, did you get those pictures into the presentation? And,
what version of PowerPoint did you use?

Powerpoint >> Saving a show to CD I had a problem with a presentation I'm planning to email
to prospective clients. The first time I put the pix in
as "word documents" then I tried copying them as jpeg's
and it worked. Good luck!

Powerpoint >> Saving a show to CD You didn't link the images, did you?

At any rate, the RedX phenomenon is hard to pin down. There's info at
http://www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq/FAQ00064.htm

You might try turning off Fast Saves as described in that link above,
resaving your presentation, and reburning the CD. Something as simple as
that may fix it.
