anyone tried this, or have advice on how to do it.

I will probably use a hifi with a tape deck and use a 3.5mm double ended headphone cable and then plug it into a sound card.

My nephew had some VCR player thingy that plugged directly into PC to rip cassettes into digital. Panasonic made them. Don't know the model though.

Looks like a VCR for the most part. About the same size, just some extra functions and ports out of the box to make it ease of use.

Here's one at Jaycar, if you need something.

Otherwise, yeah the way you suggested would be ok. Look for a program called Audacity - good freeware sound recorder
