The only way that I know of is to use a recording program (much like the Windows voice recorder, but with fewer limitations). You can get freeware/shareware versions on the net. Run a cable from the audio in on your PC to the speaker jack on your cassette player. Record each song from the tape to a file on your PC. The you can then write the songs to a CD.

You can record one entire side of a cassette at a time; however, if you do, you will not be able to select individual songs since theentire side of the cassette will be one track.

Hope this helps.

Cool Edit pro 2000 or Music Match Jukebox. If you record it as a .wav you can then edit the wave file and split up the tracks if you wish you can also use filters and equalizers etc to clean up the sound. The one thing you do need is a good quality sound card to ensure you get little or no 'colouration' from the input. The only cable you will require is a 3.5mm stereo jack (sound card line in) to whatever the line out is on your tape player, plug in start to record on the PC then start the tape(you can edit out the clicks etc). Then burn the wave to CD or convert it on the fly (Nero) to CD audio.
