Default How do I play a .wav file from Resources?

Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition:

This works, but, I need to get the .wav file from Resources:
My.Computer.Audio.Play("C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005\Projects\OrthoLabRx\OrthoLabRx\Resources\PodV wBy.wav")

I placed the .wav file in Resources, but, I can't seem to access it from there.
This does not work:
My.Computer.Audio.Play(My.Resources.PodVwBy)
It says "value of type 'System.IO.UnmangedMemoryStream' cannot be converted to 'String'.

This worked, but, instead of a click, it played a grinding noise:
Dim sndPing As New SoundPlayer(My.Resources.PodVwBy)
sndPing.Play()
