    You could try

    I don't think theres any way to do that in the windows api you ought to try some non standard .h libraries.

    dunno if that helps.

    I'm sure you could do it if you:
    a) Know how to create drivers
    b) Research the format, get comfortable with handling audio stuff and file i/o
    c) Pay the MP3 people for a license to write and/or distribute your encoder

    The last part is usually the greatest deterrant. It sucks when you spend a month writing something and then pay money for it (or get sued).

    **EDIT**
    And just so you know, it would probably be more practical to download a free MP3 encoder (I used dbPowerAmp) and use that instead.
    Just Google It. √
