    Can somebody name some programs that would allow me to convert an analog signal coming from a cassette audio tape to a digital signal and CD? I've got a line-in jack on my computer, just need to know what software is out there. Thanks!
     
  2. I use NERO Wave Editor. Works great.

    There is also a Winamp plugin that lets you record audio to a file. I think you can use your line-in as the source.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I've downloaded Audiograbber, but the Line-in sampling isn't picking up any signal from my tape deck. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Try going to General Settings/Analog and check that the correct soundcard is listed. That's usually the problem.

    I changed the settings to analog in Audiograbber with no luck. I found another program off of CNET called PolderbitS Sound Recorder which does work with my line-in signal. Sounds pretty good! Thanks again for all the help! :)
