Looking for a cheap converter for my JVC to USB

I have a JVC ghetto blaster that I need to connect to my laptop.

Here's the box:

It's got an output named "Phones". I'd like to pass that output into the following device, then into my laptop.

Will this work?

I need to convert a few old tape cassettes onto DVD. Please let me know since I'd like to purchase this item.

Besides this hardware, what software do I need? I will probably use Audacity for the audio editing. What about the audio streaming?

Thanks,

I've used a similar device like the 'Phones' devise you outlined above to record TV programs to my computer. I don't see why an audio input wouldn't produce the same results. As for software the 'Phones' device comes with some software that claims it will allow you to do what you want to do. I would give your whole idea a 'green light'.

not sure if i understand you correct.
for playing the old Video cassettes, you need a video cassette player and feed that into your video adaptor.
That's all
personally i used the zolid Hi-Speed DVD Maker, which came with the needed software(seems only been sold around my country)
here a turorial for how to do it :

I need the boombox since it contains an audio cassette player. I need to convert audio, not video.

nbandon, thanks.
