How do you transfer audio from cassetts to mp3 computer files ?
You have to have a cassete desk to transfer the casettes to your computer. Otherwise, take it to your local computer store or computer shop and they might be able to put it on a CD for you and then you can convert those files to MP3 format. Anyway, if you are able to get the files on your computer, post on the forum and I will help you find a converter.
I just remembered that you can also run the files in through your sound card into an audio application, save them as either 16/44.1 WAV files & burn as Audio CD. A great program for this is Kristal. You can download it here:

If this doesn't work, I can help you find another program.
Hope this helps!
I have a cassette player conneceted to my computer into the line-in of my sound card. I am running Windows XP, what do I do to start the transfer? Does Windows XP have built into its operating system the software to do this; or do I need addional software?
Here's a good guide that can help you:
If you need any more help, feel free to post on the forum.
Hope this helps!

I'm glad that I could help. But, I would recommend removing your e-mail from the forum as it is against forum rules.

I just looked at the software link. Didn't know this sort of thing was available free. The only drawback for me is it needs a "State of the art" PC. I am using an old K6-3 system to convert my old tapes.
I have been using Audio Cleaning Lab 2004 (CompUSA had a sale, FREE after rebate). So far it has done a great job even on this older system. There are limits though and it does not recommend burning faster than 1X on my system with their software (that one still baffles me). Also, realtime playback with multiple "special" effects enabled could get choppy on older systems as well, but playback with multiple audio cleaning effects enabled hasn't been a problem. Here is a link.
