I have a TV Capture card and I have the sound plug into my LINE IN and I do not need to select it to hear the sound from the cable TV, if I do select it in the RECORD OPTION of my souncard I hear the sound in an echo mode.
In Audacity I found it is easier to use the Stereo Mix option to record sound on your system (just make sure you turned off any System default sound so you will not hear any unwanted sound when recording your cassettes)
Hope that helps

In Recording Control of either Windows sounds volume or your Sound Card Audio Manager make sure that the line Stereo Mix of your recording option is the one selected.
In Audacity make sure that the Mixing Toolbar is selected
For the recording source choose Stereo Mix
Start your cassette and then click in the Input Level Meter to monitor the Input Level
Adjust the recording level and then start recording your cassetes.
Do not forget to turn off any System or Programs sound that may occur during the recording or those sound will be heard in your recording.
Hope that helps

Thank you for the reply. the problem is that there is no "Line-in" option on my sound card; only "microphone". When I go into control panel: Sounds, there is no option to switch over from 'mic' to 'line-in'. Am I doing this right? Otherwise, my thought was to go through a USB port. There are a number of ways to switch over from RCA to USB. There are some very simple wire to wire conversions. Then there are elaborate 'boxes' that 'convert' RCA to USB. So would these work? And how would this incorporate into audacity, if at all?
Thank you so much.

Go into your Open Volume Control choose Options then Properties where it says "adjust volume for" choose Recording and then you will see which volume control you can see.
If like me with my soundcard you cannot choose recording select Audio Input in the Mixer device
Hopefully you will have the option of line in, stereo mix, microphone and cd volume. Just click the ones you wish to see when you open the Recording Control
Hope that helps
I am sorry I just realized you are working with Vista (me it is XP or 7)
Look at this webpage it explains how to work your sound option with vista

I do not think that any apology is necessary.
I certainly think that this

is so complicated for what is presumably a one-off - audio casette tape to hard drive is far easier accomplished, using a desktop with line in
additionally even if you did use the mic jack, with an attentuation of the audio level, that is usually mono and the cassette is presumably stereo
