Up until this year, my car had a cassette player. I have thousands of recordings on sound discs—33, 45 and 78 rpm and was a heavy home taper until my trusty 1982 Radio Shack Clarinette 102 phonograph died. I still download songs from Youtube onto cassettes. I would like to find out how to transfer the music on cassettes to CD’s or some other digital format.
A couple years ago I bought a machine for around $150 that does that, from Hammacher. It has places to insert 2 cassettes, and attaches to the computer. So from the computer you can do whatever - copy, CD etc. Well pricey.
Maybe you could see a pic of it on the Hammacher site.
I have tons of old cassettes I held dear. Well - dont much bother with them now. Am into mp3 - pc - SDs etc.
About mp3 players, I have been using a mp3 player/recorder for years - use it all day every day. Recording and listening. IMO it is the only one there is. There were 2 previous types/from different places. But all very similar.
The latest from CCrane, called CCWITNESS. They just sold out their final stock. But looks like another version coming.
So handy - has 20 presets for timed recording - I record Rush during the day and CtoC over night - to listen in the morning without staying up all night.
Has many features, like fast forwarding to get thru the hours of talk radio VERY FAST. Handy enough to wear around the neck with supplied cord. etc
