The short answer would be that the Archives are not meant for that.
You still can, if you like doing things the hard way and are not too
demanding on the sound quality (it is no secret that some were recorded
inside a submarine, you can hear the propellor in the background;-)
There is no way to directly transfer the files themselves, all you can do is
grab the sound as if you were recording a radio program onto a cassette. You
must use a program like Audacity, which is free, and set the input to "what
U hear" or "stereo mix" or whatever. According to the soundcard you have,
setting the recording level can be very tricky because raising the output
level can affect the input as well! Also turn off any funny noise that
Windows is likely to make while you're recording, like when you receive mail
or click on webpages.
You can choose to record each song separately, with a lot of blank at the
beginning because you never know when the .ra file will start playing, or
write a long continuous file including all the songs you wish to keep.
They'll have to be turned into individual files anyway, which you can do the
hard way by cutting and saving each number in your sound editing program, or
automatically if you've got something like Nero7 premium. Then the burning
process can start, any prog will do as long as you have saved the files as
stereo 44100Hz .wav.
Every time I had finished the process of recording, editing, cleaning and
burning some of Scott's file, I ended up buying a commercial release because
I had become so fond of the music, after spending so much time on it, that I
definitely needed a properly remastered copy ;)
