And on another thing...there is now a very easy way to change
your cassettes to digital mp3's. ThinkGeek.com has a very nifty
and swift way to do this. Believe it or not it is a cassette
player for your PC! And the player comes with software that
actually records your music from your cassettes and then makes
them into mp3's-wav's-wmp's formats all ready for you to record
to a cd and archive for safety (in case your tapes become
damaged). Use Photoshop and scan in your cassette inserts and
you can crop them to make a decent cd insert. Now you can make
all your "old school" tapes into cd's ready for your cd player,
or archive them in mp3 format and play them that way in your
mp3 player.... The price is a very reasonable $150. and this
fits into your 5.25 bay on your computer. Here is the URL:

I really like it....just moved X hundred tapes( many compiled by friends and acquaintances over the years) to decorate front room..thinking, shall I junk them ( the pain of transferring to PC with "conventional methods"). Thank you! Will investigate.

To post them a CD of what they considered to be their favourite tracks 20yrs ago lol. Love it! Is it too new for anyone to have a source of reviews? Looking myself.
