How can I use my PC to record all my old vinyl records so that I can burn them onto CDs?
1. Connect your stereo or A/V receiver to your PC sound card's stereo input with an inexpensive minijack-to-RCA adapter cable.
2. Download and install a software encoder (such as GoldWave or Audio Record Wizard). Some free jukeboxes will work as well (try JetAudio or RealPlayer). If you use the latter, make sure you select "line-in" as your recording source.
3. Make sure to set the line input volume to a satisfactory level. Play the LP and record it to your hard drive.
4. Once it's digitized, burn it to a CD just as you would any other digital audio file.
