Audio file cutting off once published
I created a 2 slide powerpoint, imported .WAV audio onto both slides like I've done several times in the past without issue. The first slide is short, (about 15 seconds of intro music) and the second slide is significantly longer (about 40 minutes). I imported the audio -- the full audio files for both slides show up in the audio editor and I can listen to them in their entirety. Then when I publish (for the web) and access the player file, the first slide plays fine, but the second slide only plays the first 7 minutes (the file is 40 min long). This has never happened before, and I have done several presentations in the same exact format.
The other wierd thing is, for the second slide specifically, the runtime meter at the bottom shows a runtime of 7:00, but at the top left ot the screen, it gives me the a runtime of 40+ minutes (which is correct - combined its a little over 40 minutes. Very conflicting.
So to sum up - the audio editor shows that everything is in place, but once I publish it (using the web setting) it cuts off the audio 7 minutes into the 2nd slide.
I am recording with an external recording unit and then importing the .WAV files. Havent changed any of the settings on the unit, they are exaclty the same as they've always been. I'm using Presenter '09. I've done at least 20 presentations like this without issue.
Any idea why it is cutting my audio?
