    This is a bit hard to explain but here's some:

    FIRST:

    look here under "How do I record from cassette tape to hard disk?"
    http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~abco...faq.htm#record

    Goldwave is good software to hard disk recording and for editing wav. files. Although it's shareware you can download fully functional version of it: http://www.goldwave.com/

    Then just start recording... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    You might want to "pre-amp" signal by leading it through your stereo's amplifier first, by that way you can pump up the levels easier and reduce tape hiss with equalizer... --> less work cleaning files afterwards [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    ONE NOTE: Most sound cards receive HUGE interference from other sources inside your computer, motherboard and others produce HIGH magnetic fields adding wierd noises... I haven't myself yet managed to get decent sound through my devices [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
    the cheaper sound card you have, the bigger problems...

    So the absolutely best way to convert tapes is to record with audio cd recorder via home stereos... Hope you or your friends got one...
    then copy soundfiles from that CD-R to your hard disk and clean them afterwards

    Of course you need one cd-r disc more this way but I can tell you get better sound out in most cases

    you reach better sound quality if you clean songs while them are in wav. format... then convert mp3's...

    Of course ya needs lots of disc space to this [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    With Goldwave or other software it's quite easy though, after reading this document http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~abcomp/lp-cdr.htm ya should be wiser... [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
    (LP and tape are in this case almost same thing, both formats produce analog signal which is digitalized when recording cd-r..)
    So just cHange word LP to tape while reading...

    I hope this helps you... [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    This easy street leads to <a href="http://www.vhvault.com/~damngood/" target="_blank">The Damn Good Site</a>... Wanna go there?? Just point & click!!
