I am trying to add music to a slide show in Adobe photoshop elements but get the message: The selected file cannot be played because your system does not have the required compressor/decompressor (codec) installed. Any ideas?

Does this help,

Sorry, but the link isn't working, Google "Free codecs", and the one I was refering to was the K-Lite codecs. Have used them before with no problems, hope they help.

I have downloaded K-Lite but when I try to add music to the slide show I still get the same message.

What format is the music file in?

I've just read that Photoshop Elements doesn't always like the .wma format. Other than that there does seem to be alot of issues regarding this topic, and I'm not sure.

The only details that I can find are - Audio Codecs: Windows Media Audio 9.2 128 kbps, 44 kHz, stereo 1-pass CBR. The track is from a movie soundtrack CD.

Presumably you have ripped the movie soundtrack CD to your computer, what is the file ext of that ripped track?

Audio Codecs: Windows Media Audio 9.2 128 kbps, 44 kHz, stereo 1-pass CBR.

thats identical to what I used in elements with no problem
