I'm finally convinced that my onboard sound (VIA AC'97 enhanced audio) is not recommended for recording cassettes to PC & then burning to CD. I have a very nice cassette collection (over 600) and want to burn them all on CD. I need some expert advice to do this right. I have only attempted this once and it didn't sound very good. From all the negative remarks on onboard sound, I can only assume that is one of the reasons. I also used Nero 6.6 software suite for the recording, editing & burning. With the right sound card, would Nero do the job right? Is it fairly simple to install a sound card & it's connectors? Any advice would be appreciated. I have the following Computer system.
AMD Athlon Xp, 1800 MHz, PCChips M825VXX motherboard, 256 mb (PC2100 DDR SDRAM) memory & running WinXP.

You ar eprobably always going to have tape hiss unless you have a pro mastering program that you can use to remove that. But yeah, get a newer sound card that will have better analog to digital conversion, and then burn the tracks to nero.

I think nero soundtrax is what you need.
