    for the cds its easy, most cd burning programmes will give you an option to insert a music cd and it will convert it to mp3. if not, then go to download.com and search "cd to mp3 converter", i'm sure you'll find some free trials there.

    as for the tape, thats a bit trickier, i've only ever wanted to do this once and the way i did it was to play it in a radio which had phono outs, i then connected my mp3 (iRiver) up to it using 3.5mm jack to phono connector. the mp3 player has the capability of direct encoding, which means i just pressed record whilst the music was playing and it made that into an mp3 file. once i did that it was easy to upload onto the laptop.

    problem is if you dont have an mp3 player with this function you're a bit scr£wed, there must be another way though

    as harry said, most cd burning software will give you the option to burn to file.
    one of the best one's available is Express Rip by NCH (comes part of a package called Swift Sound) - that will also search 'freedb' for the song artists and titles and fill them in automatically for you.

    as for the tape - if you have a decent enough sound card (i.e. Creaive Audigy/Extigy) then it would be easy becuase they have inputs on them.
    failing that, the only other way i could see is the same way as Harry said.

    Tbis is excatly what you are looking for :

    http://www.qvcuk.com/ukgasp/frameset...ent=UKHG&qic=y

    I've bought one and while ago and its great. Comes wth the cables. Bascially you plug a lead into it then into your USB, then plug another lead into it then I plug mine into the earphone socket of my stereo (you can plug it into phono sockets - but I havent got any on my stereo).
    Then also comes with Nero Software: NeroMIX and Nero Wave Editor, so you can play to your hearts content!!!

    You might want to try MusicMatch Jukebox also for ripping, it has MP3 Pro and Variable, with Pro you can retain the sound @96kbps, makes having a HD library so much smaller.


    Ohh no, just seen the link, £32

    All you need is an amp and turntable/cassette deck, you then go from either to the amp, with a 2 plug to 1 plug lead (£5 tops) returning from the amp to line in on the PC, open software and rip tracks through software (get the MMJB trial) (might need to turn down the line in level in sound properties) to avoid distortion, then use Nero/Soundforge editor to clean up and remove the front and rear bits.

    Call me if you get stuck.

    I've been gradually transfering my Vinyl and Tapes to CD for a while now. There is a freeware program called Audacity that does exactly what you need. It capturesthe music and can export to MP3 or to AVI. I then use Nero to burn theCDs.

    Theres a great forum called http://forums.afterdawn.com/ . They can tell you anything about anything Audio visual!
