I made a slide show. Now I want to add music to it. I want to add a song from my I-Tunes. When I click add audio I can get to the song I want on my I-Tunes but when I click open nothing happens

I never got an answer. I got so frustrated I gave up. I will give it a go again and see what I come up with.
I have tried putting the song from iTunes into a folder and then opening the folder but no luck. I can't seem to move a song from i-Tunes to a folder.
I even have a teach yourself photo shop 8 book. It says to make your slide show, then open it to full screen, then click on the little wrench tool icon and it will let you browse for music. When I open my slide show full screen there is no tool bar available. I will see what I come up with tonight and let you know.

This is a bit technical but I think it says if we bought our iTunes music legally it is copy writed and photoshop cannot open it. See what we get for following the rules.

Okay, I got it to work!! It was in a very convoluted round about way so hopefully I can re-create what I did.
Pick the song on iTunes that you want to use for your slide show. Put that song into a playlist, I titled the playlist the name of the song. Then go to file and burn the song to a CD. Yes, you will have to go buy some CDs but they are so cheap anymore.
Then you have to close out of iTunes before you put the CD back into your computer, other wise it will try to open and copy back to iTunes.
So put the CD into the CD slot, HOPEFULLY your computer will give you the option to open the CD with windows media player. Open with media player and then....I kind of forget. I know I labeled the file in media player the name of the song. it tried to go into unknown album but somehow I named it.
Then I opened photoshop and opened my slide show. I went to add audio at the bottom of the slide show and I can of forget but it was easy to find the windows media player and pick that song. Then I hit make song fit slides. If you can't follow my directions or it does not work let me know and I will go through the process again and write it down as I do it.
