SOURCE: can mp3,ipod connect to philips FW-R7 with cd

All you need to get them to play is a "dock" and a 3.5mm Jack to two RCA phono plugs lead.
The Jack goes into the headphone output and the RCA's go into any spare socket on the back of the unit IE tape/cd.
Infact you just need the lead, plug it into the headphone output of the Ipod or MP3 player. But the dock will keep the battery charged and you get a remote with the dock, so you don't need to get out of your chair, to operate the player.

How to burn a Cd

The Sony MHC-BX2 can record from a CD to a cassette tape. This model doesn't have a CD burner. The manual for the MHC-BX2 is available from Sony support: . See page 12 of the PDF.

If your unit is a different model, please post a comment with that model number. I wish that I had better news for you.

(on those shelf systems that can burn a CD, place a blank CD-R or CD-RW (if supported) in the disc tray. Use the function button to set the recording source (Phono with the Croseley units). Place the tape to record in the tape deck and press play reach a point a bit before the desired point to start the recording. (Some also will record from the radio, turntable, or other device. Again start the source playing.) Then press CD Record. Press Stop when you want the recording to stop or when one side of the tape/LP is finished. (Some have a Split Track button if you want to identify every track. Press this during the silent period between songs.) Otherwise, you will get one track per side with tapes/LPs.)

How to record a cassette tape to a cd

Your question is posted under a "CD Shelf System" heading. If you really have one of these, the answer is "you can't". The CD player is a player only, not a recorder.

On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to transfer cassette tapes to CD using a computer, there are a couple of ways. One is to connect a cassette player (boom box, component system cassette deck, etc.) to the line-in jack of your computer's sound card. Download and install Audacity, which is free software for recording and editing sound. Then you can record the sound from your cassettes as you play them into the computer.

Another option, If you want to be fancy and spend a little money, is to buy a USB cassette deck. It automatically converts the cassette audio to digital and sends it to your computer over a USB cable. Recording software is supplied (sometimes the Audacity program mentioned before). Several companies make them. Here's one from a company called ION that some friends of mine have, and it seems to work well for them. They've been converting a lot of tapes of family members, and Audacity has been good for cleaning up tape hiss and enhancing the sound.

Either way, once you have the sound in your computer and processed to your liking, you just need to burn it to a CD using whatever burning software you have. (I use CDBurnerXP. It's free, easy to use, and does everything needed for normal CD and DVD burning.)

Record from cd to tape

In a shelf system the cords are interconnected and so all you need to do is to play the cd while there is a good cassette (the recording tab not broken) on the tape recorder.
Press recording/pause on the tape , play the Cd and release the pause so that the set records.

I have a yorx L350 sound system, is it possible to record from cassette to cd, read manual nothing listed that I can find maybe there's a hidden path. thanks

As long as they are 2 separate units,it should be no problem.Play the cassette.Insert the cassette out plugs into the CD input plugs and record.As long as the CD has recording ability,it should work fine.Tape like a minute and check the CD before you do the whole thing just to make sure it is taping fine.Good luck!

How to record from tape to cd

It is not possible to record onto a cd as the unit is only fitted with a cd player not a cd recorder.
To record from tape onto minidisc, just press the record button on the main unit whilst listening to a tape.

Dubbling cassette tapes

After looking @ the owner's manual online, I can see why you're confused. Man! It shouldn't that tough. You can always tell when the Chinese translate anything into English. If look you closely enough on pages 18 & 19, whenever the directions refer to "manual recording" one of functions that they don't specify is the recording of 1 tape onto another. The way that this manual was written the writer apparently didn't envision that anyone would want to do tape-to-tape (dubbing) recording.

On pg 18 it says to load a recordable (blank) tape into the B side deck. Easy enough. Next comes the tough to discern part.
In section 2 where it mentions "For Manual Recording and Sound Mixing:" Select the desired source to record or mix. In your case that would be the A deck. Here is where they needed to take a little time and explain that tape-to-tape recording is one of those possibilities. Notice that you'll need to place the B deck in standby. Then select the REC PAUSE/START to start the B deck & then (this is another place where they needed to be more clear) you'll need to simultaneously start (press the play button) the A deck which would be the recording source. In the future just remember that the A deck is the source and the B deck is the destination.

Good luck.

Trying to finalize a cd

Hi, This is just a guess but it may be worth a try. I have heard that Audio CD-Rs, which are the only media this machine will record onto, are famous for being finicky about being played on different kinds of CD readers. My suggestion is that you "rip" the Audio CD-R's content to your computer (in .wav or .MP3 format) and then make a copy of your album onto a reagular CD-R which is more likely to be played on any CD reader. Not sure if this'll work for you but it's worth a shot. Hope this helps.
