    OK folks , i need to get rid of my old audio tapes, but i want to keep the brilliant music that ive got from them .

    Now can anyone reccommend a really good and easy to use softeware package so that i can tranfer them on to my HD and would i need some special wires for this or can i just put my headphone socket from my old tape player to the mic socket at the back of my computer. And also would this software reduce the hiss in the background???

    Thankls for your help folks

    Don't use the mic socket on the PC - it is very noisy, and the levels would be mismatched.

    If the headphone output is the only one then connect to the line in on the PC. Even better if the tape player has line out is to use that.

    You can't. This only works with CDs as the database has a checksum based on the track lengths as measured by the CD reader. When you are dealing with old analogue audio you have to do your own nameing!
