Good Day All

i have some video and Audio Files that i would like the user to download to the Local Storage and after being downloaded it must be viewed.i tried the following code.

  string m_Url = "";//string.Empty;

private void btnDownload_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
Button button = sender as Button;
if (button.Tag.ToString() != string.Empty)

// m_Url = button.Tag.ToString();

//Obtain a virtual store for application
IsolatedStorageFile fileStorage = IsolatedStorageFile.GetUserStoreForApplication();

if (!fileStorage.DirectoryExists("BOOKS"))
//Create new subdirectory

//Create a new StreamWriter, to write the file to the specified location.
StreamWriter fileWriter = new StreamWriter(new IsolatedStorageFileStream("BOOKS\\" + GenericFunctions.GetFileNameinURL(m_Url), FileMode.OpenOrCreate, fileStorage));


if (fileStorage.FileExists("BOOKS\\" + GenericFunctions.GetFileNameinURL(m_Url)))
MessageBox.Show("Download Complete");

GenericFunctions.PlaySound("BOOKS\\" + GenericFunctions.GetFileNameinURL(m_Url));
