    My uncle has some really old tapes with music that I can't find anywhere.
    He just got a new cd player and I wanna make him some cd's, but we
    don't know how to get that music.

    My idea: I want to plug a tape player into my sound card via the aux.
    ports and record the songs from his tapes, then break them into tracks
    and burn them like that. Any input would be great.

    I'd use a program called Sonar 2.0. Plug in the
    tape player through the auxilery as you said
    and set up Sonar so it's recognizing that input/
    device. You can easily select the channel in Sonar
    from the 'panel display' (I think) and hit record.
    Stop at end of song.
    Save off as .mp3 file.

    You might have an easier time with another
    program, though... unless you're familiar with
    pro-audio software. Look on Downloads.com

    SoundForge works as well.

    Cut the wave at the end of each song.
    Save each segment as the .wav of that song.
    Import to CD burning software.

    Thanks everyone. Yes, SoundForge is what I'm familiar with. As soon
    as I stop being lazy I'll get this shit moving.

    Soundforge is alright for shit like that but it only does single tracks.
    If you wanted to experiment with some cool as mixing and audio editing u could get cool edit pro. It allows u to do the same thing as Soundforge except like for instance, if u wanted u could make a mix and fade one of ur uncle's songs into the other and then and some effects. Or if u had a mike input u could record urself speaking and personalize his mix. That's pretty geeky but it's for low budget recording.
