    Windows media player on XP can encode mp3 without any extra cost. Here is how:

    Install a mp3 codec. For example get one at: http://www.riphelp.com/downloads/radium_codec.html

    Make the following registry change:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Settings\MP3Encoding
    "LowRate"=dword:0000dac0
    "MediumRate"=dword:0001f400
    "MediumHighRate"=dword:0003e800
    "HighRate"=dword:0004e200

    Reboot and changes will be evident in media player options

    I've got a better idea. Download LAME and use it to make mp3s with quality that the WiMP can't even hope to compare to.
