Please edit your question and provide more detail:
What database - MDB, SQL, mySql, SqlCe, Oracle... - the field names are slightly different, though the process is the same.

There are two approaches to take:

1) Store the mp3 content directly in the DB. This is probably not a great idea. Most databases will have some kind of blob field type that you can use for this.

2) Store file paths to the actual mp3 content, which will remain as physical files on a server.
