Well these days it might be difficult unless you got a really nice cassette player. You could do the headphone jack to input on a cheap one but the sound quality wouldn't be great. You might be able to hook up some the aux outs from a tape deck to the aux ins of a cd burner or your PC. Anyway you do it it's going to be more money and trouble than it'sworth. To me anyway.

So then how do they put old tape demos on box sets? Those don't appear to be ay worse quality than the tape itself would be.
You go outside and practice screaming. We'll play music while you're gone.

Record companies have nicer equipment than your average home PC.

well first you get some gasoline and then you get a lighter or some matches..

ok seriously record companies have casette players with sort of a "line out" jack that connects to sort of a mass external cd burner

There's this term it's called "Digitally Remastered" I hear it all the time and I'm guessing they got a bunch of guys who know what thier doing with alot of expensive gear. For mass production it's viable for a few songs or discs the trouble outweighs the results.

Remember that recording companies use 3" tape for master tracks. I have a couple of pieces from my first studio gig. It is not your standard cassete tape.

You can try looking for a duplication service company in your area but the price would be too high.

Yeah, I just want to use a Kenwood deck to my PC I can hear the music but I Guess its not a digital signal for the burner to read. Maybe there is a freeware program on the web some where??? I would bet there is. ;)

If you can connect the Kenwood to your PC you could go the slow route and record the songs manually into some recording software and then convert them to mp3's and then burn'em. it could take awhile that way though.

Back in the good old days when napster ruled the web. We were hooking up our Stereo systems to our computers, via our sound blaster sound card, Aux out on the Stereo to the inputs on the sound blaster sound card and manually recording our 8 tracks, cassetts, and vinyl records in to 128 kbs mp3. format. I shared 1000s of songs this way, tapes sounded pretty good but records you could hear that it was a vinyl record. We had a program that would take out the hiss of the record player but you did lose some quility...... :) :)
