When you upload your PowerPoint to Collaborate are you having problems with some of your slides?  It may be that there is some content in the slide that is incompatible with Collaborate. There are a few options that you can try to remedy the problem.

Option A: You can publish each of the slides individually to a folder (instead of uploading the PowerPoint all at once) and then try to upload them to a Collaborate session individually in order to single out the problematic slides. Then you can examine these slides for unsupported fonts, images, video, etc.

Option B: You can export the slides from the PowerPoint you are having problems with to .png image files and load the image files to Collaborate instead.
