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.

Copy audio tapes to CD's


Hello Trevor,

Easiest way I can think of is as follows:
1. Connect the "phones" of your cassette player to the "Line in" of your PC. Line In is coloured blue, you will need a a 3.5" to 3.5" male audio cable.
2. Next, install some sound capturing program on your computer. I can recommend Audacity: http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
3. Start the cassette player, check the volume levels, do some short test records. Once you are satisfied with the result, rewind and record side A of the cassette, then side B. Using again Audacity, you can cut the desired parts of the record and save them in the format and quality you like, I guess *.mp3.
4. Burn the files to a CD. You can use CD Burner XP Pro: http://cdburnerxp.se/

I hope that I have been very helpful. :)

probably the belt for the pullys inside are worn, if you can get replacement ones they are easy to fit, just open the case and slip the old one off and new one on.(may have to remove an internal cover also)

Can I use this machine (telex copyette 123)to cancel old cassettes by copying a blank cassette onto three cassettes??


You should be able to do that with it, but note that this is a mono copying machine rather than stereo, so it may not entirely write over the existing recording if it is in stereo and the heads are in a slightly different position, but that would be the same for a stereo recorder too.
I think it will work, but really for decent recordings, I wouldn't recommend 'recycling' tapes in this way, they deteriorate fairly quickly.

Check with a small torch, to ensure that there is no tape broken arround the pinch roller or head, if there was no tape broken away, between the pinch roller and the cassette head there is a white cassette bar, this may have become bent.

Reorded tapes only play out one speaker


check your cables to the units channel that doesn't work, for breaks. Does the cassette player play back a pre-recorded tape okay? if it doesn't there might be a internal fault.
Check the wires to the tape head to see if one is off.

For Sony radios you need an aux Bus adapter called the Sony XA 300. It works with the Bus IN RCA, and there whould also be another plug spot for the Bus power and signal interrupter. That is how the Sony knows to access that port.

Cassette issues


Could the tape be a Mono recording? Have you tried to clean the head on the tape player? This could fix it if the head is dirty. Do you use the tape player very often? It could have a dust build-up. Hope this helps...

Why not plug the cassette directly into the CD recorder? Are they trying to achieve some eqalization change? If not, then this should work. It's all analog at tape level.
