The UCA202 would be the unit to use. Your pc most likely has an available driver in your i386 folder. It most likely comes with a cd-rom with any driver you will/may need. I do this as part of my business. If you transfer vinyl, (I understand that you are working with tapes,) to digital, you'll need an amplifier between turntable and the decoder. I picked up an amp (1.5 watts per channel) from Radio Shack for $50 bucks, I think, I can't remember the exact cost. In any case, the unit from altoedge.com would be the best choice. You'll have to record each side of the tape as two files, then import them into an app that allows you to flag the songs in the file so they can be accessed directly on a cd player, just as a store bought disc works. I use SONY's ACID Music Studio to perform this action. It runs about $70, and if you plan to do alot of transfers, it may be worth the price. It was for me because I offer these transfers as a client product, but there may be free programs on the web. Take a look at sourceforge.net. Which ever program you end up using, it will need to record directly from your on board sound card. Let me know if you need any tips. Like I said, I've been doing this for about 7 years.
