music in Powerpoint keeps repeating

With each slide.
With say 5 slides, I have 5 delayed playings with each slide. What am I doing wrong?
I have put the sound file in the master slide. Customised animation. Set it to play throughout slideshow and set the number of slides to play it to all 46.
It either does not play and slideshow carrys on.
Or it plays the music but slideshow wont budge.
Just sticks to one slide. And the top part like I said.
Appreciate any help. Been doing my head all day trying all sorts.

If you right click on sound icon and choose Edit sound object, is the loop until stopped option ticked?
It could be trying to play all 46 versions at once or each slide adds another sound file as it loads and eventually it all freezes.
How long is the piece of music?

I unticked the loop box and tried with loop as well.
The tune is about 3 minutes long and slide show lasts about 9 minutes.
I was planning on adding another tune but can't even get one going right:)

Sorted. I "cut" it out of the master slide and placed it on first slide.
Was reading an earlier topic but it was with watermarking. Thought I would try it with the music and it worked.
Stupid microsoft keep telling you to put it in the masterslide.
Thanks anyway.
see if I can add in the other tune to fill up the slide show.
Thanks.
