Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook ?

Trying to record from cassette to my laptop computer.

\015 I admit I'm new to this and I only know enough to be slightly dangerous and annoying. LOL\015\012That being said, I have several audiobooks on cassette that are not available any longer or in any other format. I've been trying to use a line running between my "boombox" headphone jack and into my microphone jack on the laptop. I do NOT have a Line-In Jack. My only choices are Headphone or Microphone. \015\012My laptop is a Toshiba L305-S5933 running Windows Vista as the operating system. The sound driver is Realtek HD Audio Manager v.6.0.1.5599. \015\012Can you tell me what I need to do and what I need for equipment/software?\015

Answers :

Your 3/4 of the way there. You need to do a little bit more. First you need to download software for recording and editing sounds. I use and recommened Audacity, Why? It's free! when you have your boombox plugged in and Audacity open it should work on it's own but you might need to open your control panel and set your sound input/recording to line in/microphone (same thing). You already have the hardware you need, the rest is free.
You should be able to use your microphone jack if I am not mistaken. You can try this with a simple .wav recorder that should be in your start>>all programs>>accessories>>entertainment folder. I have done something like this in the past, although I cannot remember if i recorded from cassette to computer or computer to casette. Let me know how you make out. I hope this helps.
