Hi Anyone,

I would like to know how one can record to one's PC from the Mic-line to your PC and/or the In-line to your PC.

I have cassette tapes that apparently are not going to be put to CD anytime soon and I'd like to take advantage of what one's PC has to offer for organizing and playing audio files.

I have looked at my receiver and I do not find any resource dedicated only to going from the receiver to the PC for doing what I want to.

I see that I can hook up lines separately from the different components to the Mic-line and/or In-line on one's PC but no specific resource on the receiver just for taking any component already hooked up to the receiver to the PC.

Is this because I have an old receiver or is it for copy right reasons? Why would they not make this available.

Anyhow, I can and I am doing it the hard way by taking a line directly from the cassette player to the Mic-line on my PC. Hooked up to the Mic-line sound comes out of both PC speakers where as the hooked up to the In-line sound only comes out of the right PC speaker.

So, to make sure that I get a stereo signal recorded I would like to record from the PC Mic-line.

Only, I can't find anyway to do this, to record from either of the PC Inlines to my PC.

Does anyone know how to do this?

I've checked the Control Panel Speaker and Sound icons but find nothing that facilitates recording from the Inlines.

So, anyone that knows how to tell me the "Recording to PC for Dummies" here I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

John :thumbsup:

Hay,

I did find Microsoft's "Sound Recorder" which will automatically record from the Inputs to the PC however, it will only do it 60 seconds at a time. And I haven't found any option to change that.

Does anyone know how to take the time restriction off of this Microsoft program?
