For many years I looked for something that could help me convert my old cassette tapes to a digital format until I had the chance to review the Stereo USB Cassette Capture Device. It made it easy to turn my old cassettes to MP3s and save them to the computer. The device works also as cassette player. You only need to connect it to the computer via an USB cable and start the conversion through the interface of the included software. EZCAP230 is a new device that makes things even easier. With it you only need an USB flash drive.
The conversion is made directly to the flash drive connected to the USB port of the device. You need a computer only for later playback. To start the conversion you only have to connect the flash drive and press the Record button. The content will be saved in the MP3 format. The device can also play cassettes or the converted MP3s from the flash drive and you can even use headphones with it. It powers via USB or from batteries.
Find it at Brando at $35.
