Default Audio Recording

I am in need of a program (hopefully free ) that will allow me to transfer music that I have stored on my portable XM player onto my PC. Anyone know of anything good? Thanks for the help.

does the XM player plug into your computer? example would be a USB port.

No I bought a cable that goes from my headphone jack into my sound card.

here is a program that records directly from the soundcard

http://www.applian.com/replay-av/ind...80&PID=1448936

it isn't free but there is a free trial. just google "recording from soundcard software" to see if there is any other free programs.

I recommend Audacity, its comprehensive, free and open source. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Audacity worked but it is not free. When recording it would put a tag on the file about every 5-10 seconds. Anyone else have any suggestions. Every program that I have found is pay. Thanks.

Just use Sound Recorder and record from the line in port. I use Wavepad, it's also free and includes some nice features for a free program. It's pretty much like Sound Recorder, only more advanced.
