Personally I use a little Audio Cassette Walkman with a simple basic audio cable (3.5in jack at both ends). One end connects to the headphone socket on the Walkman, the other end connects to my Microphone socket on the front of my computer. (The Line In socket just wouldn't record any sound at all - even though it is supposed to).
The software program I used was Audacity - I chose this because it was free and also because it was the only program I could find a Step-by-Step tutorial for on Google.
I use exactly the same system as CLONNEN and the little Sony Walkman takes up very little space on the desk. I have finished copying all mine now ( about 100) but it takes a long time as you have play each one all through, not like copying a CD. Russell.
