Thanks, Ken. That did help. It took some work though - I am surprised
there isn't a class in .NET that exposes various standard file properties
for music, pictures, etc. Anyway, I tried using the Windows Media Format
SDK directly but was quickly overwhelmed - plus the help file said you had
to use C or C+(?) So I cheated and used Doug's sample code and modified it
to work in my application and it works great.

Thanks again!
