Thanks Pineman, I've actually got Audacity on my machine but I never use it. I had one of those gizmos that purport to turn vinyl into cds, which I thought was the biggest pile of crock and the worst buy I've made for years. They amplify the surface noise...pops, crackles etc to an unlistenable degree and Audacity is needed to remove the racket (It didn't!). Anyway I digress....got it but no idea how to use it!!
