Default Package for CD with links to Windows media player content and Flash Shockwave content

Hi, i have finish a presentation in powerpoint 2003, and I use a lot of Shockwave Flash animations and Windows Media player movies that are linked to the files on the company network. I would like to package this presentation to a CD but the links to the files stay the same even if I add the files to the CD. And when I want to open the presentatio in my house, for example, were the company network is not available then the movies and flash animations wont show.

Is there something I can do?

Put all linked files into the same folder where your PPT is located, package all files to a CD. I think this should work but I didn't test it.

I tried doing that but the links stay the same, is ther maybe something I can put in the properties windows of the flash and Windows Media Player objects, in the field were the address is typed so that it can look in the same folder as the presentation, without caring of the drive the folder is in????

When insert the file, remove file path info and keep file name only, PowerPoint will search the current folder.

Default It Works

Hey Thanks, that did it, I burned it to a CD and the links work when I attached all the files to the same folder and changed the links to the filename only as you suggested. Some videos are a litle slow but other than that it works perfect.
Thanks a lot for your help.
