Question Copying Cassette Tapes To CDs Using K3b Burner

Is it possible to copy music soundtracks on cassette tapes to CDs using the K3b Burner? If so, how do I do this and is there other hardware, accessories, or additional software required?

My wife is a Gospel Singer and she has over 400 Soundtracks on Cassette Tapes that she uses to sing with. Many of these are getting old and are no longer in production and we don't want to lose them. If the above isn't feasible, are there audio recorders that could do this without using the computer?

Many Thanks for you responses and recommendations.

If you can get your hands on some older audio cassette players with two tape drives you should just be able to record the old tape to a new one.

Couldn't you just plug your cassette tape player into your sound card "external input" plug, and play/record the music directly into your pc, then burn from pc to cd?

Elaborating somewhat on sleepindawg's comment ... Use Audacity to rip them to your hard drive, then k3b to burn them to cd.
