It looks just the ticket for turning cassettes into CDs, but I suspect I would have to buy a cassette player before I could use it! :roll:

I do the same thing. I found an old dictaphone the other day, which had a recording of a fourteen-year-old me blackmailing my sister after I caught her smoking! So I connected a lead from the headphone jack to the line-in input on my sound card, and then I recorded the line-in using Audacity, which is a very popular, very good, and very free open source project. Then I exported the file as an MP3. But again, Tony would need a cassette player in the first place!

Would this be any good Tony? Available from Maplins, order code N05HH, tape player included that plugs straight into a USB port.

I think I actually want to play cassettes as well as convert them. I wouldn't bother to convert the majority onto CDs. You have to remember that I am a total Neanderthal - I play CDs through my computer or my TV via my DVD player, I have nothing else. Things like MP3 and ipod are just meaningless strings of letters and numbers to me! :lol:

Despite so many kind suggestions my main priority is trying to improve the Audio Section on this website and my own personal listening comes a long way second. Despite the marvel of all the information on the internet there was almost nothing on these audio items at all, which is why I thought it was important to set it up in the Cave. I knew very little about what was and wasn't available and the last few months have been a learning curve - and I believe I still have plenty more to discover. There are people out there who know far more than I do, but as yet nobody has volunteered any information or images.

This tape playing/recording/conversion device from Aldi on special offer this week looked like good value. :D

Sounds right up Tony's street, unlike a branch of Aldi. :|

I know! I checked that out immediately after Pete's post and the closest branch is Romsey.
