    What is the best way to convert lps to cds? This will be for my old man so the easier the better then again he can figure just about anything out if he wanted to when it comes to computers lol. Maybe a system that is all in one and not just for converting but playing also. Thanks

    If your camcorder has AV in and came with an AV cable.... and has a "Firewire" connection... and your turn table has L&R RCA audio out jacks.. you can highjack it that way.. I'll leave it up to you how you want to rip out the audio track once you get it in DV or MPG or WMV format.. that's the easy part..

    An even easier way...get a stereo mini phone plug to RCA jack adapter and just use aux on you computer..

    i've done a lot of this....

    you've got to run the turntable into a reciever before your PC to amp up the sound a few dbs so as to get a good signal to noise ratio. then ru from the line out (not the speaker out!) to the PC's line in. (cable as necessary)

    buy nero for $50 or so and it as a great wave editor to record. i do 2 tracks, side one and side 2 and crop the ends off real nice. burn those onto cd!

    easyish

    You can try Audiograbber.

    You can set it up to break up into tracks at pauses in the sound. I am going to use it to record from my record player to my computer and then to CD.

    perfect, just make sure to amp the turntable a few DBs before the PC!
