cassete tapes to PC...again BUT different

I noticed that there are several music microsystems in the shops that not only contain a cassette deck but also have a CDR. Ok, cost, therefore quality is not high but, short of buying the cassette reader that fits into the PC,( still only available from the States, surprisingly) does anyone know as a fact if I can use such a system to record my cassettes onto a CDr, for subsequent transfer onto my PC HDD? I asked in Dixons and.......blank faces.
Am also about to email the makers of such systems.

Yes. Well, sort of!

They will play on the PC. From there you can record what is being played to the hdd. Then convert to mp3 / wav or whatever you want.

You sould be able to get or make a cable that fits the earphone socket on the player to line in on the computer. you then need some kind of recording software

I thought that if I record from cassette to CD, then from CD to HDD as MP3...but, silly me. Direct from system to PC via cable should give better quality?

for input. My apologies for not really "hearing" the sound advice already given, many times here!

[quote]Direct from system to PC via cable should give better quality?[/quote] - not especially but it will be ok with a decent player and quality soundcard.
