The Multimedia control

I'm using VB4.0-32 if that makes a difference.  I'm playing around with a cd player.  Everything is working beautifully, execpt, I can't find out what track is currently playing when the program is loaded, assuming that a music cd is currently playing and no other program has control of the cd rom.  I have the timeformat set to 10 (TMSF) and if I read the mmcontrol1.position, I get a number that appears to be random, say 6 to 10 digits.  Whatever it is, it's not in the TMSF format like the help file says it should be.  I'm assuming that I need to convert the number the position property is giving me.  Thanks in advance.

Sub MMControl1_StatusUpdate ()

        Debug.Print "Mode = "; MMControl1.Mode
        Select Case MMControl1.Mode
       Case MCI_MODE_OPEN
       '      'whatever...
       Case MCI_MODE_STOP
       '      'whatever...
       Case MCI_MODE_PLAY
        If giOldTrack  (MMControl1.Position And &HFF) Then
       giCurrentTrack = (MMControl1.Position And &HFF)

              If giKTELCD Then DisplayKTELFeaturedArtist(giCurrentTrack)
                     giOldTrack = giCurrentTrack
                     b3dPlay.Caption = "Sto&p"
                      End If
                      End Select
              End Sub
