Hi just wondering if someone could give me a guide in doing this, software needed, hardware etc.

I too am interested in this. Can one connect a cassette deck to the sound card and record, say a WAV file and then convert to MP3 or whatever?

Most sound cards come with a recorder of some kind, where you can record external sounds from the line-in port, or microphone.
You need to get the relevant leads to go from your tape player to the sound cards line-in port.
Then start your recording software.
This will then be saved as a .wav file
Most cd burning software (when you tell it you are creating an audio cd) will convert the .wav file to a proper audio format .cda for your hi fi.

Mad Boy,

Its inexpensive to buy a lead, to go from your headphones socket, to your soundcards line-in.

click here Audio Cleaning Lab. 3.0 or the latest version, 2004.

I use a connection from the headphone socket of stereo to computer line in. Cleaning up cassettes is easier than vinyl records, particularily after years of vinyl and wear and tear. Audio Cleaning Lab does a very good job removing clicks, scratches and hissing.

The Magix website will lead you to a tutorial on the subject or click here
