Advice on transferring DAT recordings to CD

  RayProud 14:24 05 Oct 2004

Twelve years ago I'd had enough of vinyl and decided to transfer my albums to DAT. I now want to transfer these recordings to CD mainly because of convenience and because of the age of my Denon DAT deck.

I know I need a sound card with a digital input and the Creative SoundBlaster Platinum seems to fit the bill. I have SoundForge v4.5 which I believe can process the data prior to it being copied to CD.

My Denon manual states that I can make a second digital copy but I won't be able to make any future digital copies due to protection.

In short, can anyone who has any knowledge of digital transfers give me any tips on transferring from DAT and whether I would be able to transfer data from the hard drive to CD?

I've searched the Internet but there is very little info available probably because DAT really never caught on as a home format.

Thanks for your reply. What do they say? Great minds? That was the only site I found searching with Google and unfortunately it's quite old. They warn away from using Creative Live soundcards and I was hoping a more up-to-date site might have info on the suitability of the Audigy LS or ZS cards and whether SoundForge v4.5 was suitable.
