Question What in the world is this noise?

I've got a 2002 Hyundai Accent with 47K miles that just started making a noise. I'm pretty sure all the belts are fine, so I'm not sure what this could be. Thought someone might be able to take a listen and let me know if it's indicative of anything. I recorded about 30 seconds of me starting the car and letting it run. You can hear the sound the best in the last 5-10 seconds of the clip. Here it is: STRANGE NOISE

From what I can tell its the belts. Maybe something came loose.

My initial response would be the belt.

I agree, sounds like a squeaky belt to me. You say you are pretty sure the belts are all fine, how did you come to that conclusion? My suggestion would be to check the tension on all the belts. Does the sound continue all the time or does it stop after driving for a while?
