Perhaps downloading one of the free codex packs below will resolve the problem for you:

You could use Windows Live Movie Maker. A free download from MS, which uses a storybook video editor, that you can also display photos, add transitions, a title, create a menu, AND ADD YOUR OWN MUSIC.Its very good and you can burn to DVD. David

I think you need to convert the music to *.mp3, I know that works in WLMM, becuase I use it to play as the photos are displayed. David

What is the format of your music file?. These, (according to Microsoft), will work in Windows Live Movie Maker.

Windows Media Audio (WMA) files .asf, .wm, and .wma

Pulse?code Modulation (PCM) files .aif, .aiff, and .wav

Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) files .m4a

MP3 files .mp3
