there is not exact method to do this, what you need is a casette player that you can plug in to the back of your computer where the microphone goes, then use something like audacity to record the music and save as mp3 so you can burn them to CDR it will take some experamentation on your part to get the volume levels right on the microphone and recording level too...

If you can get your hands on a cassette deck that has a Line-Out, that's even better. Plugging the Line-Out to the Line-In on the computer will help eliminate a lot of the hiss you typically get with converting cassettes to MP3's / WAV's etc.

Also consider recording them in an uncompressed format to preserve what quality you get from the cassettes and storing them on a DVD.
