I use this method, too. I use a product I bought several years ago called "Instant Music" by a company called ADS Tech. The software it utilizes is an older version of Nero. I don't know if this product is still available, but I've been very satisfied with it. The software includes a volume control that enables you to know how loud the sound is that's coming in from your turntable so you can adjust it properly if needed. I think I paid about $50 for the Instant Music package in 2006 or so.
