Tape To CD Transfer

A few years ago I tried to transfer some old Christmas cassette tapes to CD.  Didn’t have much luck.  It did work but didn’t like how it turned out.  So a few days ago tried again with much better results.  Had all most the same setup as last time with one small differences used video editing software.  Hooked the player to the computer using a mini (headphone) jack with RCA on the other end.  Then hooked up my video camera to the video input on the computer.  Used the built in capture card.  Then used video editing software to extract the audio.  It was a bit of work but the results were a lot better.  After the first one was great decided to do two more.  Half way though the second one the batteries die.  Now I have to get more to finish the job.
