I use a program called LP Recorder and LP Ripper from click here hav a look and see what you think. Use LP Recorder to record the tape to your hard disk, then use LP Ripper to split it into separate tracks and burn to cd.
In response to your email. (for everybody's benefit) If you are using Win98 try Start, Settings, Control Panel, Multimedia, Audio and make sure both playback and recording are showing your sound card as the Preferred Device. Don't know if it is the same in Win XP but someone else might.
You could also try your input lead in the Headphone socket of your HiFi instead of Line Out.
