Default image cannot currently be displayed

Just taken the plunge to update to Office 2010 (fromXP!).
I open an older .ppt file in compatibility mode and add some slides, placing some new tif images on them. I save the file. When I open it again, the images have gone, replaced by a small red cross and 'this image cannot be currently displayed'. If I convert the file to pptx, the images are remembered. If in the .ppt file I insert jpg images instead of the tif ones then everything is saved correctly.
Does anyone know why I canot use tif images in Powerpoint 2010 in compatibility mode?

Post image cannot currently be displayed V2

I am having recieving the same message.
However my PPT document is a .pptx
I am running a script in Excel that automatically moves graphs generated by Excel into PPT via Paste Special-- Picture (Enhanced Metafile)
and then adjusts the placement of the picture

and about .5% (1 in 200) of the time the paste leaves me with a box positioned correctly but with the "image cannot currently be displayed" message in it with no error code.
