    what is a set? how many tapes. If you can't find anyone closer I can do this with a little effort for you.

    Hi,
    The set is four cassets of Gene Hill reading his book Hill Country.

    It's not too hard to do it yourself. You can use any recording software on your computer (Audacity is free) and just plug the tape player's headphone (or line-out jack) into the line-in jack on your computer. Hit record on the computer, and play on the tape player. You can then use the software to clean up any hiss, pop, etc.

    Download Audacity for free: Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder

    I was going to suggest what bcdon said. If you were closer I'd be happy to show you, but you should be able to find plenty of youtube videos on how to do it. If you have a kind person at RadioShack who doesn't mind being a human being for a few min, he could show you how to set it up, too.
