Question about HP Pavilion dv5020us Notebook

2 Answers

I want to copy a cassette tape over to a cd.

I was told I could use a stereo cassette player and by using the head phone port on the cassette player, I could plug the other end into my notebook and download the cassette. Does this sound ok? I have a HP Pavilion dv 5020us Notebook PC. I have itunes and a CD burner on the PC.

    Your solution may have been a good one, however I tried downloading a software program from golden records and the problem was solved. The download was free. Thanks.

It is not that easy. You need a way to convert the audio into MP3 or iTunes format (ACC or MP4).
If you have many cassette tapes that you would like to transfer into MP3 and eventually onto a CD, you need to purchase software or a device like the one in the link below, which is a Tape--PC drive with software.:

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

You have to have a line in jack or a microphone jack to record sound, and really so you can control the sound quality it would be better to have a line in jack. Ive done some VHS to DVD and you have to be delicate with the sound....meaning that if you dont balance the sound out from the source and the sound coming in from the recording end(ie your laptop or pc), it can sound like 10 cats trying to sing Purple Rain.

Can i hook up my PC to my sterio system through the headphone jack on the stereo to the PC HEadphone jack? been trying to get it to work on Auxilary but no sound :( please help


If you are still working on the question you asked about. This is what I would do. One of two things:

First: purchase an adapter that goes from your laptop 3.5 mm headphone jack to the microphone input if there is one.

Second: Would be to purchase what is called a "Cassette Tape Adapter". This will take your 3.5 mm headphone jack and play it through your cassette tape area of your stereo.

I hope one of these is a solution that will help you. -- wicc --

Can I record in stereo via the microphone/line-in jack? On the the Sigmatel interface when Line In is selected, I get no signal on either Audacity or Sound recorder software - but I do get a mono signal...


The input-level from a (monophonic) microphone is MUCH less than the input-level from a device (cassette player?) connected to the (stereophonic) LINE-IN socket.

So, crank-up the slider, to amplify the input.

Make sure that you're connecting into the LINE-IN port, if you want to record in stereo.

How do you record a Cd from a cassette tape on the Crosley that can be used later on a laptop computer?


I use a simple program (FREE) called Audacity (audacity.com). It allows you to capture the song(s) and then save them as a .wav or MPEG file on your computer. From there you can burn a CD. You will need a cable (Radio Shack) to connect the AUDIO OUT on your tape player to your MIC input on your laptop. There are a variety of connector types but the folks at Radio Shack can help. Pretty easy to use and AUDACITY has a tutorial on "how to" do it.
Good Luck. I have ALL my old cassettes on CD now.

I'm not 100% sure that is exactly what you are looking for but it's a good place to start.

What you are looking for is a video and audio capture device that is USB compliant.

Is there a stereo input for the Dell Inspiron 1100 to record?


Yes, the input is stereo BUT you need to configure Audacity to do the stereo capture. Go to File > Preferences. Once in the preferences dialog, go to the third Drop-down menu, and change from MONO to 2-channel stereo. That is.

T60: use ''mic'' minijack as ''line'' minijack


From the "ThinkPad Online User's Guide" that came with my 600E: "Note: To use the input jack for an external stereo line-in device, you need to disable the microphone function with the software on your operating system. For example in Windows 98, you can disable the function by putting a check mark in the check box of Mute for MIC in the "Master Out" window. To use the jack for a manual microphone, disable the line-in function with the software."
