Visual Studio Professional 2010, database

I am starting a new project, I will be using Visual Studio Professional 2010, .Net Framework 3.5 and Programming Language C#.  The project requires a database, which will be simple, containing 4 or 5 tables.

The main function of the program will be to learn a foreign language for my school. So the database's main function will be to listen to sample recording in the foreign language. I will start up as a standalone desk top application but plan to migrate to a server environment in the future.

I am considering using MySQL as the database but I see where Visual Studio Professional 2010 comes with what looks like an internal database. My question are:

1: Which database would you recommend I use?
2: Advantages/Disadvantages of both?

Thanks

MySQL is a good option.
But you can use SQL express edition 2010. Its free and MS product.
This will give you a better performance with .net

I think MS SQL Server will be a good option with .net application, as you have may feature in .Net framework which supports Sql Server. For example you use LINQ to SQL to connect to database and also do dml operation on the data instead of using SQL queries.
