Power Point and embedded wav files

I created a power point presentation on my home PC.  It has wav files for each slide.  It plays fine on the home PC.

When I copy the presentation, the wav files don't transfer. The default for embedded files is apparently 100 kb.  Some of them are greater than that.  Is this what is wrong?

HOW do I change the default size for the embedded files in power point 2010?

No, most sound files are embedded by default whatever size.

Does the laptop play other wav files (not in PowerPoint)?

Can you post an example somewhere?
Richard DanekeTrainerCommented:
The easiest way is to use the Package for CD option (under Save & Send) to ensure your audio files are included (it also packs a PowerPoint viewer if needed at your destination)

Click on the File tab to get started.

The files can be placed on a USB stick or a CD/DVD.  Supporting documentation can be added to the folder as well.
Richard DanekeTrainerCommented:
This method would permit you to include link files (audio, video, etc.).
It is a good habit (though not required) to place the linked files in the same folder as your presentation.

Tried this.  The wav files are apparently not transferring.  I found that if I copy the wav files from the home pc to my lap top, they don't play.  What do I do?
All wav files are usually embedded in 2010 you don't need to change the limit.

Does the laptop also have 2010?
Are you saving in the new pptx format?

BTW Save and Send Does NOT include the viewer (in 2010)

Yes, both are running 2010.  Yes, saving in pptx format.
Good to know about the wav files.  So, the limit doesn't apply in 2010.
