The "Play CD Audio Track" command is not available on the ribbon in PowerPoint 2010


In Microsoft PowerPoint 2010, the command Play CD Audio Track is not available from the Audio drop-down list in the Media group on the Insert tab of the ribbon. If you want to play a music track from an audio CD, we recommend that you transfer the audio track that you want to play to an MP3 audio file format. You can use Windows Media Player or another, similar program to create the MP3 file. For more information about how to transfer tracks from a CD to MP3 files, see the Windows Media Player Help topic "Rip music from a CD."
