I've got several reels of tape I'd like to put on CD or DVD, and am totally new to doing this kind of thing. I think I've got the old reel to reel hooked up OK - left & right channel RCA jacks to a single stereo mini-plug in the microphone input on the sound card - OK? If not, how do I cable to input? Is there such a thing as an adapter from 2 RCA jacks to i.e. USB? Would that be better? But what is a good app (preferably free, I'm laid off) I can use to record it into sound files on my hard drive and that I can then record onto disc? I've got the Windows Sound Recorder and also SoundMAX. Will either work, I suppose SoundMAX would be better if it works because of the adjustability. What kind of file should I use? wav OK? I might want to edit out some short sequences so would need some program I could use for that also. Thanks much!!
