Help needed! - Recording from Tape to CD

I have found an old recording (tape) of a jazz gig I did back in the mid 90s. I have listened on my mates old tape player and it sounds fine.
I was wondering if there was a product out there that allows copying from a tape onto CD or direct onto PC? I no longer have a tape player, so will have to buy one anyway if I want to listen to it.

Anybody got any ideas?.

If you borrow your mates tape player, you should be able to get a simple audio cable that goes from the headphone socket on the tape player, to the mic socket on your soundcard (you'll most likely want a 3.5mm stereo jack at each end of the cable, but check first to make sure what size you actually need). Then just use a piece of software to record it (e.g. Audacity) and stick it on a CD like you normally would.

This tutorial will show you how if you can, as nightswimmer said, borrow a tape player from someone:

Only thing i will add to that is dont connect it to the mic socket. if possible connect it to a 'line-in' socket as the mic socket is only designed for mono input as oppose to stereo input.
if you have nero installed it is possible to use that to record with.
