Brilliant item, one of the best things I've ever bought! :),
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HooToo® Portable USB Tape Cassette To PC/MP3 Converter Capture Adapter Digital Audio Music Player (Electronics)
If you have old cassette tapes that you want to convert into MP3, buy this! You will not be disappointed. I purchased this product to convert all of my old 1990's rave cassettes, and have found this to be perfect for the job. Quite possibly the best 20 quid I've ever spent on Amazon.

1. Connect tape player to PC using USB cable.
2. Install Audacity from the supplied disk.
3. Double click Audacity icon on desktop.
4. Edit > Preferences. Change input to USB.
5. Press Play on tape player
6. Press REC on Audacity
7. At end of recording, press STOP on Audacity, then File > Export as MP3.
Hope this helps! If you need any more detailed advice, let me know! Having read your comment, I think it's possible you haven't got the Audacity input set to USB - there's a picture on the instruction sheet that shows you which settings to change...

You should be able to do it in Windows Media Player :
1. Open Windows Media Player
2. Open file location using the navigation links on the left hand side of the screen
3. Drag the music file to the 'Burn List' area on the right hand side of the screen
Repeat 1-3 for each track you want to put on the CD, then put a CD-R in the drive and click 'Burn'
