perhaps the easiest method would simply be to point your computer microphone towards the audio source and record onto your hard drive.
Otherwise you could run the line out of the reel-to-reel via a stereo (or mono if needed) RCA to 1/8" jack cord (commonly found at Ratshack) into your computer's soundcard "line in". You can use Microsoft's sound recorder usually found here: C:\WINDOWS\SNDREC32.EXE to capture the source as a ".wav file. There are other fine recording software pkg's on the net including the superb "cool edit". This free version will even give you 30 minute trials!
Once captured as a wave you may then convert the files into your CD burner's software.
Hope this helps,-
