Opening a file in VB

P: 5
This code should open an MP3 file into a list box:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  Private Sub btnAddFile_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnAddFile.Click
  2.         Dim OpenFile As New OpenFileDialog
  3.         Dim file As String
  4.  
  5.         OpenFile.InitialDirectory = "C:\Documents and Settings\Matth\My Documents\test1\"
  6.         OpenFile.Filter = "MP3 Files (*.mp3)|*.MP3"
  7.         OpenFile.RestoreDirectory = True
  8.         OpenFile.Multiselect = True
  9.         If OpenFile.ShowDialog() = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
  10.             For Each file In OpenFile.FileNames
  11.                 Dim sread As New IO.StreamReader(file), s As String() = sread.ReadToEnd().Split(Chr(10))
  12.                 For Each str As String In s
  13.                     FileList.Items.Add(str)
  14.                 Next
  15.             Next
  16.         End If
  17.     End Sub
Unfortunately, it doesn't open the file in the list box as a '.mp3' file, but it just outputs 'A Music File{}'

could someone help please???
