    I just bought a unit that hooks to my computer, with the software provided, will convert your old
    cassette tapes to mp3. Then you can play them with iTunes or upload to your iPod.

    It cost me $36.81 (usd) which included shipping. My first try was an old ABBA cassette. It worked
    just fine.

    Because of our spam regulations, anyone who is interested can PM me and I'll give you the
    info.
