I have a powerpoint presentation created and loops with music.  This works great on any pc.  However, I need this same presentation to play on a DVD and maybe auto play or at least show a simple menu to play when a user inserts the DVD with the powerpoint into a DVD player.

Can someone assist with this?

This will sound like a stupid question, but it's always what I ask my client in these situations: Do you need it to play on a DVD player on a TV or on a computer?

Computers can play both TV-type DVDs and computer-type DVDs. TVs can only play TV-type DVDs.

If you want it to play on a TV as well as a computer, you need to use DVD authoring tools. Save the PPT file as a movie (use Save as Video in PPT 2010 or 2013) then use DVD authoring tool to insert the movie and create a menu and burn to DVD.

This worked great using PPT and Windows DVD maker.  Makes movie file playable on pc and normal dvd device 'w' tv.
