I want to record a audio tape from my hi-fi to my pc, so i can burn the trax to cd, so what's the best way to do this?. i tried hooking up a lead from the speaker sockets on the back of the hi-fi to the mic socket on the sound card. Then i used sound recorder in win98 but the quality is dire, so has anyone done this properly?.

if u sound card have a 'sound-in' socket ... then connect ur tape output jack to that socket. but don't expect any good result since cassette's sound quality isn't really good

For the best, you want everything at 'line level', i.e Line out from the tape to Line in on the computer. Use a decent tape if possible, on a decent tape player. It makes a huge difference. Use reasonable cables, and a decent soundard. You get the picture? smile.gif

Thanx for your help on this subject, Well i have a few old and not so old tapes and i don't see why i should go out and buy the same thing on cd, when it might be possible to transfer it via cdrw.. and as far as i know it's legal cause it's for my own use.. anyway cheers.
