Default International Text

I have filenames that I am reading into a list box, some of the file names contain international characters ie:
Code:
Röyksopp - Melody A M - 01 - So Easy.mp3
I then want to write these files to a text file but they are coming out as:
Code:
Röyksopp - Melody A M - 01 - So Easy.mp3
I use:
Code:
sr.WriteLine(lstMP3.Items[x].ToString());
where sr is a StreamWriter object.
I've looked through the help and the beginning c# and pro c# books but have gotten rather confused.

I think I have to pass IFormattable or something to the ToString but not sure how.

:) Actually it was at the save point, the filenames displayed in a listbox correctly.

I had to change the way I used the StreamWriter by adding a Text.Encoding.Defualt paramater...unicode, ascii, utf7/8 didn't seem to work but defualt did...which is slightly odd.

But I did manage to fix it.
