    Do you mean how to convert cassettes into MP3 or something? Sorry I don't really understand. What do you mean by digital?

    You would have to use the "line in" and "line out" inputs on your stereo and audio cards. Then you would need a software that can record sounds, such as cool edit pro or something similar. :D

    I do recommend cool edit pro as it allows you to remaster the sound. I can do that for you if you can get me those songs. :D I have some recording engineer background.

    Sure, you can send it to my gf parent's house. I'll inbox it to you, let me know if you're interested.
    I'll remaster it for you, it won't sound like a million dollar studio, but I can clean it up and make it sound a lot better than what you're hearing on the magnetic tapes. I might be able to do some remixes lolz.

    Wait a few months though, I'm back up as it is. :D
    For right now, I meant, put the wire in the line in/line out, and record the songs and send it to me via online, u silly girl. :D

    Go to walmart or bestbuy, any electronic store, ask for a 6ft 3.5mm jack male to male cord, plug that into your stereo "line out" and plug the other end into your "line in" of our computer.

    Download "COOL EDIT PRO" and I'll guide you thru the rest of the steps.
    Won't cost you more than 10 dollars for the cord. :D
    The quality of your soundcard/computer power does determined the overall quality, just fyi.

I think I got ride of it long time ago and I forgot that I still have one of my favorite tape left. But yes, I would love to send it to you, no rush just take your time. Thank you, thank you. A big smat kiss on the cheek<3+<3;)

    Yes my father was trying to so the same thing with his old cassette tapes. He bought this small cassette player which has a program call audacity with it. It was about $15-20. You install the audacity program onto your computer. Once done, there is a USB cable which connects the cassette player to the computer. Press record on audacity and save the cassette songs on the computer. Now, it is just like any other MP3 file.
