I successfully recorded from cassette tapes using the headphone socket. Depending on the software you're using, you'll need to get the audio volume correct and you should be able to edit wave or mp3 files to get the best sound. Some mp3 players can record directly to mp3 by plugging into the source headphone socket.

You'll also need to use the correct headphone jack/adaptor plugs/cable. Foe example: 3.5mm male to 3.3mm male [one for headphone socket, the other into your PC soundcard/audio/lin-in socket].

Yep, that's what I did too! A lovely low tech solution!

Does this mean we are showing our age here, or at least you two are I've just remember that it was 'a friend' that did it, not me!! :wink:

Thanks anyway, guess at most i just need a 3.5mm male to 3.3mm male.

Got them ripped fine just need to find some software to filter out some of the crap you can hear on the playback, Just like a general hiss when turning the volume up.

Have you tried Audacity?

It's free and could get rid of the hiss
