I want to use DirectSound in my program but I get this:
unresolved external symbol _IID_IDirectSoundNotify

I already linked my program with dsound.lib and winmm.lib. So what library should I link with my program?

You define it by yourself: IID_IDirectSoundNotify? If so, it is most possibly you did not include the file containing this symbol.

Commented:
Take all dlls and create MDFs(module definition files) and see which one to include.

I don't think it will help. It's more a direct sound procedure question.
This may have just been a type in the question, but you have _IID_IDirectSoundNotify

The IID is IID_IDirectSoundNotify (without the underscore).

For example...

LPDIRECTSOUNDNOTIFY lpDsNotify;
.
HRESULT hr;
hr = lpDsbSecondary->QueryInterface(IID_IDirectSoundNotify, &lpDsNotify);
if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
{...}

It's exactly what I have

if FAILED(IDirectSoundBuffer_QueryInterface(lpdsb, IID_IDirectSoundNotify, (VOID **)&lpdsNotify))
                        {
                              return FALSE;
                        }

There is no underscore
