need help connecting stereo

Question

I am using Roxio Easy LP to MP3 software and running windows 7. My problem is not the software, but how to connect my stereo. I need to use the headphone jack because there is no line out option on the tape player. The head phone jack is old and requires a phone jack which is larger than the adapter included in the software package. Is there an adapter cord available?

Quite a few actually...

 

Amazon

 

Radio Shack

 

I would run over to Radio Shack if it is convenient for you.

Thank you. I have the adapter but still not able to record. When I try to record the tape, I set the capture to SPDIF Interface. The next box is labeled Input and the only option is Master Volume. If I try to record, I get a flat line. What am I doing wrong?

SPDIF is digitally transferred audio, not the analog sort of stuff you're getting from your stereo player. You're using the wrong input.

 

You should be feeding the output from your stereo player to the microphone input [pink] or the line input [lt. blue] socket of your computer. Then set your capture accordingly.

Jim~I am now able to record from tape cassette to computer and I am lovin' life. I still need to figure out how to edit the tracks, but this is a terrific start! Thank you for your assistance. I replied to Brandon through a personal message because I wasn't able to determine how to post a general "thank you." I really benefitted from this forum and thank all of you who offered your expertise.

Like this, using the Multi Quote combined with the Add Reply button... The changed the Forum Software this week and we are all scratching our heads a little :lol:

 

FYI: for the sofware you are using posting in the VHS to DVD would be better... They don't have spot for the Roxio Easy LP to MP3 suite so we figured since they use a similar A/D device that would be a good place.
