I'm seeking for help with storing and retrieving/calling numerous sound and picture files. I've about 200 both .bmp and .wav files and it might get bigger. So I'm not sure if it's wise to embed that many files in the Resources, or should I add them to a special directory within my project and call them from there or else. VB 2005 does not recognize just a file's name even if it is located it the Resources so my question is how can I call file using just its name and not full path? And if I have to store my files in the special folder, I should propably search for that specific folder in the runtime and I need help with this one too. Thanks in advance.
