    How does windows pass data to drivers?

    Hi all!

    Does anyone know how (and/or where I can find more information) on how windows passes data to drivers?

    What I'd like to do is put a hook between windows and my audio driver. Basically it'd go OS -> my program -> audio driver... My program would then perform two functions: 1) write the data from the OS to the hard drive and 2) pass the data to the audio driver.

    (Yes, I realize there are commercial implementations of audio capture; however, none can capture directly from the soundcard on my Inspiron 9400)

    Thanks!!

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.
