"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the MP3 has a WAV-header, you can play it with the API-function PlaySound.

No idea if it's possible, why do you prefer the difficult way?
If your MP3 doesn't have a wav-header, there are free tools that can add the wav-header. Or you could write a program yourself to get info from the first frameheader of the mp3 and construct a wav-header with it.
