You need to set audacity to record in stereo as described in the FAQ:

If the track you recorded contains multiple sections or tracks which you'd
like to export as individual files, you can place markers where you want
to divide the track and then use the "export multiple" command to
export multiple files with different file names - for instructions see
It is also possible to force a new track on the cassette to a new
track in Audacity by pressing "stop" and "record" quickly when you
reach the end of a track on the cassette.
It is also possible to automate the split by marking the silences with
the "silence finder" under the analyse menu. However this may not
work well (or need careful setting) in classical music which may have
moments of near-silence.
If Silence Finder is not there you can obtain it here as a Nyquist plugin
( See this page for more on installing Nyquist plugins)
When you have the splits in the right place you can use "export multiple"
command as at the end of manual splitting.
