Hi amitoj,

Dunno bout worldspace as I have yet to see one but from old style Audio tapes (Cassettes) is rather easy.

Connect the tape player to your computer audio line-in (Sound Card jack at the back, if you have one or else use your Motherboard manual to find the Line-in connecter for your on-board sound card). At the Player end, use the headphone jack else if you have L/R Audio-in for the computer, you can use the L/R Audio-out jacks of the player using standard RCA cables.

Download a good Audio recording software (I use MusicMatch version 7). In the recording source, just drop-down the list and select Line-in as the source.

You can record using .wav or mp3 or oggvorbis formats depending on what you prefer.

I have converted about 20-odd tapes to .mp3's and it works well.

Cheers

Its the same wether its a cassete player or a Worldspace player. you can use Audio Jacks for both. But check one thing if your worldspace has Digital out. If yes then you need a sound card with Digital in. So you have lossless sound data with you. In case of audio you have Digital -> Audio(analog) -> Digital and it will lead to loss in quality. Since Cassete is analog, it does not make a difference and a good quality Audio cable will give you great results.

Take care into one thing, if you are using audio jack, make sure you use a Shielded cable. Computers generate a lot of noise, so your regular cables may suffer from lot of interference noise.

Thumbs up

What is worldspace unit ? if it is similar to audio cassete which has a stereo o/p, u need a good sound cards preferably SB live which has stereo inputs,not to mention a good quality shielded audio cables, U will need to capture the audio first in audio software like soundforge or Cooledit pro, for professional work u can use nuendo, Once its captured u can save and burn to whatever form u want ,mp3,wave,wma,cda (audio cd format)

Cheers

Go to SP road near Mysore Road flyover. After the computer shops start thining out you will see shops selling PCB's. ICs. Speaker systems etc., Ask them for a shielded cable. It is an ordinary copper cable enclosed in a shiny outer jacket which is the shielding. Also check wether your sound card has stereo in(Unless its an antique it will have stereo in).
