    Microsoft makes a great program that is part of Windows Xp plus! that will convert any anolog audio into digital audio so that it can be burned to a CD. The software only works on windows XP home or pro and it runs for about $45, it also requires a tape player with a headphone out jack, a CD burner, and it also requires a 1/8 in. to 1/8 in. audio cable. Then you'll connect that cable to either a line in or a mic in headphone jack on your computer. You can actually use any audio recording program to record this including free programs that can be downloaded at Tucows.com but this program from Microsoft has many great features including a pop and static filter, it will automatically find black audio spots and record them as different tracks, and you can select the quality of the recording.
  3. The quality probably won't be exceptional but you could record it from the cassette player's headphone out with Audacity and burn the mp3's on cd.
