Seriously,  I would like to take advantage of listening to my Cassettes on my truck CD player.  Any suggestions on how to do this?  CD player does not have an input jack..  I have used my portable CD player to listen on my cassette player by using the adapter cassette but I want to reverse that process.  Is there anyway to download my cassettes to CD.  I don't think so but maybe someone has thoughts on this.  

I drive a semi but I switch trucks every few days.  I sometimes am in the middle of a book on cassette and get a truck with a CD player instead.  Arrrggghhh!  It puts me in the position of being involved with 3 books at a time-CD, cassette & print.   No wonder I seems scattered at times.

I appreciate any positive input people might have.

PS-I have 400+ audio books on cassette that I would love to swap for credits or swap for Audio books on CD.  Listing all of my cassettes would take a long time, just send me a note if you are looking for a particular title.

You can copy cassettes to CD, here's the basics, http://www.infopackets.com/news/hardware/2003/20030218_how_to_record_an_audio_cassette_to_cd.htm

Or, buy a small cassette player to transfer between vehicles. Maybe you could find a Sony Walkman or similar on eBay :-)

Thank you so much.  I printed out the info.  I knew someone could tell me how to do this.  It opens up so many possibilities for me.  I have a tape player but I also need to use my phone earpiece at the same time.  Maybe I just need another ear.  I saw a movie once about a man who grew an extra arm from between his shoulder blade so maybe....  YUCK!! 

Have a great week and a wonderful Thanksgiving.
