How do I play a session?

Click on the session title from the session list page and then click Listen or View Session to begin the presentation.

The session I have selected is not playing. What is wrong?

First, check to see if you have Macromedia Flash Player 8 Player installed on you computer. If you do not, refer to the Installing Flash Player section below. If you do have Flash installed, make certain to click on the play button in the player to start the session again. If you still do not hear any audio, system resources may be running low, causing the browser to leak memory. To rectify this problem, stop the presentation and restart. If this does not cure the problem, stop the presentation, close the window, and re-launch the presentation or restart you computer. If you are still having problems viewing the presentation, please contact our support center at

How do I install Flash Player?

You can access the Flash Installer by either clicking on the Macintosh or Windows button at the top of the archive website or by going to Note: You must have an active connection to the Internet in order to complete the Flash software installation.

What if the slides are not showing up?

To play the slides Macromedia Flash Player 8 needs to be installed on your computer. If working from a home computer, make certain that the latest version is installed. The link for the player is close to the top of the archive website. If viewing from an office or company computer, make certain that the company IT department does not have a firewall or similar administrative security feature on your computer, disabling the download. If your company prohibits mp3 files or jpg files from being downloaded, you will not be able to view it at your office.

Can I download or print the speaker materials?

At this time speaker materials are not available for download, but they may be printed.

Can I play a Conference OnDemand CD-ROM in my car?

No, an audio CD is needed in order to listen to the sessions in your car. These CDs will not feature the supplemental material (e.g., Power Points, Word documents, etc.)

Can I play an MP3 audio CD in my car?

Most stock CD players built into modern cars will not handle the MP3 format. Many upgrade players, found in most electronic road shop departments, will offer CD players that feature MP3 capability. These CDs will not feature the supplemental material (e.g., Power Points, Word documents, etc.)

Which type of CD do I need in order to play the session in my car?

An audio WAV CD is needed.

If I ordered a CD-ROM, how to a convert it to an MP3 audio CD that will play in a CD player with MP3 capabilities?

1. On a PC: Close any windows that may have started during the "autorun" feature. Go to "My Computer" and right click on your disc drive. Chose "Open." 

On a Mac: Close any windows that may have started during the "autorun" feature. Double click the CD icon on your desktop.

2. Open the "audio" folder. The mp3 files are inside this folder.

It is recommend copying and pasting these files to your desktop.

If your car will play MP3s, burn a new disc as normal. If your car plays only WAV CDs, do a search on the Internet for free audio converting software and convert your files to WAV files.

How do I load the audio files to my MP3 player?

Follow all of the above steps. When complete, simply import them into your MP3 player as normal.

How do I make the audio files play in my car stereo?

Follow the above steps to pull the audio from the CD-ROM to your desktop. These files can be converted using "ripping" audio software. This software is sometimes included with your computer or CD burner, but not always. If not, affordable software can be purchased at most computer stores or downloaded from the Internet.
