LAST EDITED ON Apr-20-02 AT 02:08PM (EST)[p]Do you have the sounds on tape, video or cd etc.?
It's very easy to record the sounds but you need a cable between the source and the computer. There's usually 3,5mm jack in the sound card.
You need to put the cable to AUX or whatever it's called and then test if the sound comes through. If yes, just record it with your favorite program. If not, just change the cable to another plug and test again. There's plugs for line-out, mic, aux and gameport and maybe speakers.
If you have the sounds as files on your computer, you need to convert them somehow. There should be no problems with other formats than Windows media or Real-audio.
Please tell me some info?

I have a record in a video tape recorded by me in 1995, but I passed the sound to my computer and try to pass it to MSTS but Only I hear a very loud noise (Think in a very high pitch)
Make sure you plug the sound source into the "line-in" jack on the computer or sound card. Also check to see that your cable is plugged into "line-out" on your sound source. If you are using the earphone jack as output, you may have the volume turned up too loud. You should also look at the setting of your "line in"
slider on your PC's volume control setting.. I just dumped over two hours of steam (CP 2860, CN 6218 and NKP759) to my pc last night and had no problems once I got the levels right..

Tried this one at home tonight........
I have a TV card on my PC, I can also plug my video into an arial cable and watch/record (as avi) video on my PC. Using a freeware video editing program (Zwei-Stein, available from downloads.com) I can create stills from video capture and also create pure wav files from the recorded sound.
Result, good quality wav files for editing..........
If you have decent source video with good quality sound the end result wavs are useable.
(haven't tried editing them yet though, only thought this one through tonight)
