How do I get Data from my casette player onto my PC.. Do I need special equipment?
Should be able to do reasonable job with a straightforward connection between the line output of the cassette player into the line input of your PC's sound card, or socket if sound provided by mainboard. The cable you will need will probably be a twin rca at the cassette end and a miniature jack at the PC end, although this of course depends on the equipment sockets.
The sound card or motherboard will normally have come with a player/recorder program so use that to record the sound onto the PC hard drive. You can normally choose the input source from the program. If the cassette deck does not give sufficient output you could try using the mic input.
You may have to experiment a bit to get decent recording but it can be done. Plenty more info on internet - do a search for cassette to PC.
Thanx Flash that worked ok
Good. You're welcome.
I thought he said "data".....not music.....
I wasn't sure what the OP wanted either.
But www.plusdeck.com looks good, in case anyone missed it last time it was mentioned here
