hello all i did get support the other week and been looking into linq as suggested,
and been looking into it now if i am not mistaken this should work
XDocument xdoc = new XDocument();
xdoc = XDocument.Load(@"C:\Users\elfen\AppData\Local\PCDJ-DEX3\Database\Database.xml");
var result = from q in xdoc.Descendants("tracks")
artist = q.Element("arti").Value,
title = q.Element("titl").Value,
filename = q.Element("fnam").Value
and xml file....
not sure gone through loads of guides cant see why its not picking these up.
