    I've read more than one source claiming that Windows Media Player 10 has built-in MP3 encoding (finally). Yet after upgrading to version 10 today I tried to rip a single song into MP3 format and received an error stating I must have an MP3 encoder installed before WMP can do this. When I clicked the link for "more information" I was taken to a page with encoders for sale. That doesn't seem very "built-in" to me.

    What am I missing?

    BTW: I have not "upgraded" to SP2 yet--I just installed WMP10 separately.

    havent used mp10 so dont know if this'll work but....
    LAME is a pretty good free mp3 encoder
    you'll have to set up mp10 and LAME to work together somehow
