    I have an unusual question. My wife has an extensive cassette tape collection. How can I burn/record them to CD's? Was hoping for a way to download them, one at a time, to the hard drive, (20GB), and then transfer them to the CD/RW drive. I have had no luck so far.:confused:

    Any help might save my hide. LOL Was doing this as an anniversary gift for her. She only has a CD player in her car and I wanted her to be able to listen to her tapes. Her player does not have an input jack on it, cannot use an adapter either. Tried an RF converter, did not work either.

    My computer is as follows;
    Dell OptiPlex GX1
    Pentium III 500mhz
    CD/RW Drive (1)
    CD/rom Drive (1)
    3GB Hard drive (OS only)
    20GB Hard drive (app's, programs etc..)
    SoundBlaster 16 PCI sound card

    Audacity is a free package that's very capable and has lots of sound processing options for noise removal and volume adjustment.

    I'll move this to Other Software, since it's really not a tip or trick. :)

    I would definitely second the recommendation of Audacity (free and Open Source----- and it does a great job).

    If you are looking for the specifics of how to do the job- let me pass along a couple links I picked up along the way that I think cover the topic well (even though I would use Audacity as my first choice program):

    Good luck-- I hope the wife enjoys her tunes,

    Audacity is a good choice for cleaning up the audio as well once you've digitalized it.
