Let me preface this by saying I am not very technically literate. I've browsed the forums and have seen many topics of people connecting their Stereo line-in to their sound card line-out, but I want to do it the other way around. I want to connect my stereo up to my sound card so I can transfer some audio cassette tapes to mp3 files. However, my stereo system only has a line-in auxillary jack, there are no line-outs. Is there any other way of doing this or do I just need a new stereo that has line out jacks? If this has been covered before and I missed it, I apologize. Thanks in advance.
I too, wish to convert audio cassettes to mp3,or wav file. I have purchased a product that connects directly to the line out or audio out via a pair of phono jacks. The other end plugs into a USB port on your computer. The problem is that any recording has a low hum to it. The device can also be hooked directly into the receiver's head phone jack with the appropriate adapter. I've done so and still get a hum when I record. I've adjusted the computer's mixer properly -- Windoxs XP -- to no avail. The hum is similar to that of an ungrounded turntable. The humming begins as soon as I make connection. Any suggestions?
