I have just purchased a new Sound system that doesnt have cassette play.

How can I connect the old cassette player so I can save my tapes to my H/d and copy to CD?

Is this legal if I own the cassettes?

Peter, this question has been asked before a few times - so go into the archive of old posts to see the answers (do a search using key words). This popular topic should be highlighted in the next issue of PC World...or maybe it has been already?

Hello Steve,

Run a stereo lead, from your line out on your cassette player, to line in aux on your stereo. At a pinch, a lead can be run from the headphone connection on your cassette player, to the line in, but the quality will probably deteriate.

Next, run a stereo lead from your stereo line out, to the line in, on your computer.

Musicmatch, or mediajukebox are two programs that will record line in.

It can take a fair bit of fiddling and editing to get the best results, but at the end of the day, some quality is governed by the quality of the tapes.

Good luck,
Bob
