Cable for connection
Question : What kind of cable do I need to connect my tape deck to my computer
so I can record music on cassette tape to my hard drive?
Answer : In most cases, you can link the cassette deck to the computer
with a Y-shaped cable that has a pair of RCA plugs on one end to connect to
the tape deck's outputs and a stereo miniplug on the other end to connect to
the computer's sound-in port. Radio Shack and other electronics stores sell
Once you have connected the machines, you can use your preferred
audio-recording software to capture the incoming audio when you push Play on
the tape deck. If you don't have a preferred audio program, there are plenty
of shareware options at sites like www.tucows.com and www.hitsquad.com.
