I think it's safe to say we're talking about music files. And I'm also
guessing that by your use of "string" in previous messages, you're referring
to the "text" that Windows Explorer displays at the bottom of the window
when a music file is selected. Explorer is just gathering that information
from the file's tag or metadata. Your program's going to have to get this
information from the file. You can't get it from Windows or Explorer. MP3
tags are very easy to read. I don't know about WMA or other music file
types. Am I at least on the right track here?
