What implementation are you using, and what platform?
What happens if you just pass NULL for the device to alcCaptureOpenDevice?
If you're using the OpenAL-Sample implementation, it suffers from a bug
that requires you to open a playback device (using alcOpenDevice) before
you can open a capture device.
