    How do I convert my old 8 tract tapes to CD's?

    I have recently purchased a new HP computer which came preinstalled with Windows Vista. Now what I want to do is just change over from tapes to disk and was wondering if I can do the same in Windows Media Player that I have with me? I am not really a tech savy kind of guy so, please give me some suggestions in simple language. Thank you.

    I think that you will need an 8 track player which will have an audio line output and then you can connect to your computer's line input and then try to play them and record them. After that you can simply burn the recorded 8 track player audio to a new CD with many burning software such as Nero or even with Windows Media Player. Hope this helps.

    You can get something like Audio Recorder Plus which enables you capture any sounds of your PC into MP3 or WMA files quickly and easily! By using Audio Recorder Plus you can record sounds from MIDI, Internet broadcasts, streaming media (e.g. QuickTime Player, Realplayer, games, DVD Players) and your microphone. Download it by searching it from google.

    The best one to do the job would be Audacity. It is a free, easy-to-use and multilingual audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU / Linux and other operating systems. You can use Audacity to:

    1. Record live audio.
    2. Convert tapes and records into digital recordings or CDs.
    3. Edit Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV or AIFF sound files.
    4. Cut, copy, splice or mix sounds together.
    5. Change the speed or pitch of a recording.

    You can even try out Spin It Again from Acoustica. With this simple application, you will not get to much of complicattion. Simply insert the player into your PC and the program will automatically detect the device. Spin It Again is especially useful for those whose records that have deteriorated over time and now sound with noise and weird sounds because the program automatically tracks remasters it and then gives a new sound which is much more optimal.
