  • Hi,

    try the code:

    Imports System.IO
    Module Module1
        Sub Main()
            Dim b As Byte() = New Byte(127) {}
            Dim sTitle As String
            Dim sSinger As String
            Dim sAlbum As String
            Dim sYear As String
            Dim fs As FileStream = New FileStream("D:\test.mp3", FileMode.Open)
            fs.Seek(-128, SeekOrigin.[End])
            fs.Read(b, 0, 128)
            Dim isSet As Boolean = False
            Dim sFlag As String = System.Text.Encoding.[Default].GetString(b, 0, 3)
            If sFlag.CompareTo("TAG") = 0 Then
                System.Console.WriteLine("Tag is setted!")
                isSet = True
            End If
            If isSet Then
                sTitle = System.Text.Encoding.[Default].GetString(b, 3, 30)
                System.Console.WriteLine("Title:" & sTitle)
                sSinger = System.Text.Encoding.[Default].GetString(b, 33, 30)
                System.Console.WriteLine("Author:" & sSinger)
                sAlbum = System.Text.Encoding.[Default].GetString(b, 63, 30)
                System.Console.WriteLine("SUbject:" & sAlbum)
                sYear = System.Text.Encoding.[Default].GetString(b, 93, 4)
                System.Console.WriteLine("Year:" & sYear)
            End If
            System.Console.WriteLine("Any key to exit!")
        End Sub
    End Module
