Windows 7: Powerpoint is recognizing sound clip as movie, won't play the sound

Powerpoint is recognizing sound clip as movie, won't play the sound

At a lab I've spent numerous hours on this animation that I'm entering into a national competition. In PowerPoint I had my friend narrate it, and uploaded to drop-box. It was all working perfectly, but now at home when I downloaded it most all of the sound clips are recognized as movies, and won't play. Two of the sound clips still are recognized as sound clips and will play, but the other 12 don't. How do I fix this? The due date is tomorrow.

Not knowing what format they were uploaded to and if they all were uploaded in the same format, its hard to say. Are you using the same powerpoint version?

Can you look at them individually within powerpoint and see what they are listed as (not the powerpoint show).

Although this is an audio problem, its more a Powerpoint problem and maybe should be posted in the MS Office section.
