Not sure if this is the right 'area' to ask this question but hopefully someone here can help me.  I am lookingn to convert some of my old audio tapes to CD.  How this be done ?  I know I have to connect my stereo to the Line In on my sound card - that's about all I know.  What software would help me get those tapes onto a CD ?
Thanks

The simplest way is to avoid using your PC at all.  Most have very poor A/D conversion capabilities and you'll find that most audio capture tools are sadly lacking.  

I've found the best solution is a CD Recorder Deck.  Get a PRO model that will burn on computer CD-R media instead of a consumer model that uses the "taxed" Digital Audio CD-Rs.  The recorder will cost you a bit more but you'll make it back in saving on the blanks.

I have a Sony CDRW-33 unit:

Which does an excellent job on both CD-R and CD-RW media.  It's have great A/D input characteristics as well as optical digital in/out S/P-DIF.
