That's a new one..I don't have an answer but the word "cassette: caught my eye. I remember the end of 8-tracks. I remember when a CD was: "OMG! what is that? Is it new? Whatdya mean you don't have to rewind it?"

I've got you an idea <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Take something that can play a cassette.. Any player/walkman/radio ect..<br><br>
Plug that into the audio input on the back of the computer. Then, download a program that records from the different inputs on the sound card and bam. It might not be Mp3, but theres solutions for that too (converters)

I'd just use iTunes or something...lol.<br><br>
Probably the same price for that, as it would be for a cable to hook up a tape player to your computer...if it's just one tape, just iTunes it or whatever.

yeah, just get a double end phono wire and plug from a walkman's headphone output into the input for your X-fi. Then open up sound recorder and convert the music into .wav. Then you can find software to convert the wav files into MP3's. Any good suite (Roxio, Nero) should be able to do the trick.

X-Fi Xtreme Music comes with WaveStudio, so if you have it (dunno if it comes with the other versions), once you've recorded it as ^ said, just open up the editor.
