that this is to do with the links to the movie samples in the PowerPoint Presentation.
I can't tell you much because I have never created a PowerPoint file and I don't know the procedure, but if that fie has links to the movies that include the full path, eg E:\Movies Folder\Movie1.mpg, then when you start the presentation it will look for the movie files in drive E. If that doesn't exist, or if the flash drive is loaded as a different drive on different computers, then that search will fail.
You need to change the link to the movies so that it does not refer back to the drive letter. Instead of an absolute link, you need a relative link.
The absolute link will look like E:\Movies Folder\Movie1.mpg
The relative link will look something like ..\Movies Folder\Movie1.mpg
The ..\ tells the software to step back to the previous directory, (in ths case the root directory of the flash drive), then look for the folder "Movies Folder".
I hope that helps. I know it isn't very clear.
I need help in using my USB flash drive. The computer systems I use are all windows XP. I use powerpoint presentations with movie inserts. . The flash drive works great on the computer I'am using at the time, but when I use the flash drive in another computer to run my presentations the movie inserts don't start up automatically and I have to manually insert them again. Each computer sees the flash drive as a different drive i.e. C:/ or D:/ how do I tell the computer what drive it is so the movies will start automatically?
I have all the movies in one file and the powerpresentations in another file. Both files are in the same flash drive. How do I tell the computer to see the powerpoint movie inserts?
