I have experimented with converting older cassette tapes to MP3 format using software like Roxio's Easy Media Creator (and other software, too), but I've gotten mixed results on sound quality. The bit rate makes a big difference, but I think the player or cabling may also make a difference. Has anyone tried this, and if so, any tips on how to get the best sound quality?

Hi Sue,Yes I've done this with Windows Media and other software and you're right,the player and cabling do make a difference,and so does your computer's sound card or external
D(igital)A(udio)C(onverter),if you use one. If you made the cassettes yourself I recommend using the same machine set to the same settings (Dolby noise reduction,bias,etc.) to do the conversion. I also recommend reading everything you can about it;here are some links:
