I have currently got a powerpoint with over 200 slides of pictures with just some fading transitions. How would I put this on a DVD with Music playing in the background (Doesn't need to be in sync) ?

I currently use Wondershare's PPT2DVD at work - on Powerpoint 2000. Works well; looks fairly good on our 42" LCD at work

Interesting question which I'd be keen to know the answer to.  Surprising that MS hasn't incorporated a built-in "export to (insert media type here)" option to export to wmv or something.

I have software on my Mac called iShowU which lets me choose a recording area (window or full screen) size, and it will record anything that is playing in that area - including sound if i want.  It also outputs to a lot of formats, but for anything it doesn't do I can always convert using VisualHub.  This is a pretty manual process though so i'm keen to hear of other options for what you want to do....

Your other option is to throw those images into Windows movie Maker and create the file and burn it that way....

WMM is extremely easy to use and produces good results for things like this. (Not backing it as a pro tool, because its not, but it gets those small jobs done easily).

I have used PPT2DVD to do this which has worked perfectly.
