Try real jukebox and line in to create a music file that can the be recorded to cd. The quality is not very good but it does work. I use the earphone jack from my boombox and aquire appropriate cables to get in to audio line in on my computer. The volume levels can be a little tricky but with some experimenting will let you arrive at something you can live with.

I have used Easy CD Creator for years, by Roxio. I recently was emailed an offer for $40 on last years model 6.0. You record cassettes,records, video, etc. remove scratches, pops and add effects. Also make labels and cd covers. I hope that helps. Jonnymac

CD Line In

You can get Audiograbber for free on the net. Then go to file-line in and you will have a program you can use to move your cassette tapes to a cd.

Audio recording levels and auto split tracks
by butter38 / December 15, 2004 9:23 AM PST

Audiograbber is nice to use. If your not good at getting the best manual recording level,you can use the Normalize feature of this product, but "Hard Disk OGG" is better at on the fly recording level adjustment from my experience.
Audiograbber can split tracks for you automatically if you like, but Hard Disk OGG is only good for recording from sources to the LINE-IN jack of your computer and Streaming Audio from the Internet.
