I have a ton of old tapes and would like to have CDs of the music....but not enough to go buy all the tapes on CD. A guy a work was telling me about some gizmo that lets you burn cassettes to a CD.

Anyone heard of this thing? A Google search was of little help. I know the quality wouldn't be quite as good as a new CD, but it might be better than nothing depending on the price.

Anyone seen/used one of these? Have any links?

Thanks! :thumb:

You could just plug a cable into your cassette player and into your soundcard. Then you could use a program such as Roxio to capture the music.

Firstly I would download everything you can on MP3 that was recorded from a digital souce, just so that it wouldn't sound like crap.

The average mic in on a soundcard just doesn't have enough bandwidth to sound decent. So if you don't want to spend money on a soundcard with line level inputs. Then I would get a decent audo program that can not only filter all the noise, but break the cassette rip into individual tracks. Nero for example.
