Much better than the Windows program would be this freeware sound recorder/editor

Then, I think, all you need to do is connect the "Line Out" of your tape player to the "Line In" port of your computer's sound card.

I use a commercial product to restore (and enhance) LPs and Cassettes. Audacity does a great job and will probably be all you need. Recording it to an audio file should get you a very good copy of the tape.

If the cassette holds music (as opposed to lectures or other spoken word programs) you might want to compensate for some of the limitations of the tape by filtering out "hiss" and then boosting the high end. I find that listening with a good pair of headphones is a good measure of progress!
