Transfer Cassette Tape To MP3 Using Audacity

I really didn't intend on this tutorial being THIS LONG, haha. Sorry, but I just keep messing around with stuff and I figured I'd take you all along for the ride!
If you're using a portable cassette player to the 8th inch LINE IN on your computer, use this cable
If you're using a laptop with a combination jack, you will need this adapter
If you're using a regular cassette deck to 8th inch input either line in or splitter use this cable
If you need an external USB input (recommended) here's the Behringer UCA202 and the appropriate cable depending on your cassette player.
