Recording direct to iPod from cassette


Q: This one’s a long shot, I know: is there a way I can directly record into an iPod from cassette tapes?

– Ravi

A: Technically, there isn’t yet, but it’s coming very soon. When Belkin, XtremeMac, and Griffin Technology begin to ship their 5G iPod microphone accessories later this month, you’ll be able to use any of them with a simple line-in or microphone cable to record full-quality audio from any source, including a cassette deck. For more information on each accessory, including audio samples, see the articles below:
