    Recording software

    I'm hoping to record some old cassette and stereo VCR tapes to mp3s via my sound card. Unless there's something I'm missing (quite possible), it looks like iTunes and WMP are not capable of doing this. Only burning from CDs. Anybody have any suggestions for software to do this, hopefully free?

    You'll have to do some stuff manually, but it's not that hard.

    Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder would be what I would use. When you're done recording the track, you'll need to select the track you want to save, and then do a "save as mp3".

    You'll probably also have to add the ID3 data by hand, but that's not hard.

    Outstanding! Open source rocks again! This is pretty fancy. I'd recommend this to anybody who likes playing with audio files.
