It will then tell you to press record on the tape. Make sure a tape is in, then press record. The screen will go blank for a while. When it comes back the tape is done.
Step 3: Get the computer ready to record
First, connect your tape player's headphone or speaker jack to the computer's microphone or line in jack.
Next, open up a sound recording program:
Windows Vista - Sound Recorder
Other versions of Windows - Voice Recorder
If you can set quality in your recorder, set it to the highest.
Step 4: Start recording
Put the tape in. Press record on the computer. Press play on the tape. Wait until the section of the tape that you want is done. Press stop on both tape and computer.
