Hi michaelair,
To play sound in VB 5, you have to use the Multimedia Control, if you want more information on how to use this, go to VB's Books Online, and type Using the Multimedia Control, it will show you how to use it.

I hope this helps, if you need any more information just add a comment.

Sincerely,
Jason

Hi michaelair,
A change to my note above, in the Books Online, search area, simply type multimedia control, and the article you need to click on after typing that in is Using the Multimedia Control.

Good luck!

Sincerely,
Jason

Hi michaelair,
here is some sample code to get you started;

The following example illustrates the procedure used to open an MCI device with a compatible data file. By placing this code in the Form_Load procedure, your application can use the multimedia MCI control “as is” to play, record, and rewind the multimedia file DING.WAV. To try this example, first create a form with a multimedia MCI control.

Private Sub Form_Load ()
      ' Set properties needed by MCI to open.
      Form1.MMControl1.Notify = FALSE
      Form1.MMControl1.Wait = TRUE
      Form1.MMControl1.Shareable = FALSE
      Form1.MMControl1.DeviceType = "WaveAudio"
      Form1.MMControl1.FileName = "C:\WINDOWS\DING.WAV"

      ' Open the MCI WaveAudio device.
      Form1.MMControl1.Command = "Open"
End Sub

To properly manage multimedia resources, you should close those MCI devices that are open before exiting your application. You can place the following statement in the Form_Unload procedure to close an open MCI device before exiting from the form containing the multimedia MCI custom control.

Private Sub Form_Unload ()
      MMControl1.Command = "Close"
End Sub

This should help you get started with the coding.

Good luck.

Sincerely,
Jason

Hi michaelair,
To use Mp3 files, you could put an ole control on your form, then when it prompts you for a file, browse to an mp3 file, then when you run your project, it will automatically launch WinAmp, or whatever player you use to play MP3's.

If you need more information just ask.

Good luck.

Sincerely,
Jason
