View Full Version : LP records to CD

29-07-2003, 09:25 PM
I planned to get a CD/RW for my PII-400, a new sound card and some software in order to transfer my vinyl LPs to CD.

Some dealers are happy to sell he the hardware, while others tell me that the PII-400 processor will not be up to the job. However none of them have worked through the process

Can someone tell me whether my gear will be OK for the job?

It will be OK - slow - but how much Ram do you have?

it should be fine
how big is your HDD and ram etc

it should be okay, but you will need to kill all other processes - especially anti-virus software, while you are doing it. The slightest interruption in processing time will give you a faulty recording.

Thanks Peter H and Kiwibeat for the prompt replies.

Right now with my PII-400 I have 128MB RAM and 18GB free on my hard drive, but it is beginning to look as if I need a serious upgrade or a new CPU.

just get another 128 megs of ram and a 20 gig HDD that should be ample for a few more years depending on what you want to do on the PC however
