record from mic input?

I have a few cassette tapes I would like to put on disc.
I have connected a tape recorder output thru the mic input and can hear it very well.
But am at loss on how to record it to a Disc, Any suggestions?

If you have a stereo tape you need to use the Line In instead of the Mic in which is only mono (it has a stereo plug but the ring is +5V DC for a computer mic).

You "record" the songs to the hard drive, saving each one as a "wav" file (not MP3). Then using a CD burning program you create "audio" discs (not MP3 discs).

The free (and popular) "Audacity" program will record and save files. The free CDBurnerXP will burn to discs (much better than the Windows Media Player burning). Only use CD-R blanks. Do not use CD-RW blanks.

You may have to set "Stereo Mix" as the default Recording Device for Audacity.
