Understanding Music

How would I calculate the PC slide show into the equation (since I am
using it) ?

I guess what I am driving to a formula that I can calculate how many
pictures with music and with a PC slide show can I fit onto a disk. I
can do the calculations, if I know the relationship between the sound
file and the size of the disk. It sounds like it is zero overhead to the
VCD - but what overhead does it add to the PC slide show?

Yes as long as you don't include a PC slideshow too.

Yes this is on the future features list.
