Windows 7: POWERPOINT Issue - How Do I Transfer?

POWERPOINT Issue - How Do I Transfer?

I just made a PowerPoint 2007 slide show presentation with 82 slides, music (that plays through the slides from beginning to ending) and many slides having animated GIFS. The complete finished presentation is flawless, and it came out very well. It's really a beautiful presentation (for a retirement party).

I saved the presentation on my desktop, and if I click the PowerPoint icon for this, of course it goes into the slide presentation where I can edit any number of slides I so desire or modify it in any way.

NOW! No matter what I do to transfer this file . . . saving it to a CD or flash drive . . . or, even put the file into a New Folder from the desktop, the animated GIFS not only get "flattened" and don't play AT ALL . . . but the ENTIRE SLIDE PRESENTATION doesn't even advance from Slide One!!! Also, the music background is gone! So in other words, if I click the icon from any saved media - CD, flash drive, it shows the very first slide only and just "sits" there - no music, no animated GIF (which I have starting on the first slide) and no advancement from this first slide into Slide Two! TALK ABOUT AN ODDITY! Can anyone offer any help on this?

Have you tried Save As, and then save it as a PowerPoint show rather than a Powerpoint presentation?

You just need to click Save As Type then choose PowerPoint Show from the drop-down list.

No, I haven't done that yet only because there may still be some photos that I'm told to put in (by my supervisor). Of course, if that's done, I'll have to change the length of the music track (somewhat of an inconvenience). But, I wanted to save this in the edit form (onto flash drive or CD), for this reason, assuming that I'll be given more photos to add. But, as mentioned and as it is, no matter how I save it, nothing works OFF the desktop. I can click the icon from the desktop and everything will work perfectly - slides advancing automatically, animated GIFs operating and music playing. But, if I try to do a Send To, a Move To or a Copy to any other area from the PowerPoint icon on my desktop (this PowerPoint edit mode), nothing on these destination areas, the presentation just doesn't do all the things mentioned above.

Transfer Disk image and licensing issue?
I have a SSD drive that is only 128gb and I keep running out of space on it. I would like to upgrade to 256gb. Can I do a drive image or something and copy it all across to the larger drive? Will this affect my Windows license, if perhaps they link the license to a hard drive? Thanks, Jon
