Hi anyone who can help me.

 

I've joined Spotify following a recommendation from my future son-in-law as a means to an end which I'll try and explain.

 

I've a serious collection of cassette tapes, some of which date back to the 1970's, which I'd like to transfer to my laptop and subsequently to a USB stick, so I can play them in my car. I appreciate there are various systems that will enable you to do this, but he seems to think that it might be easier for me to simply download what I can find from here, rather than going through the onerous task I've mentioned.

 

My questions are threefold really.

 

1. Do I need to subscribe to a paid Spotify service to download?

 

2. I haven't a clue how to go about configuring things, although am quite capable of working it out with guidance. Any advice on this front would be much appreciated. Not a total technophobe, but of a slightly older generation and would appreciate a little tolerance along with sensible advice please.

 

3. Would I be better just purchasing a 'tape to pc' type system, downloading the software and doing it that way?

 

Sorry for perhaps coming across as a little slow off the mark, but as I say I'm no 'yoof' and would be grateful if someone with a little patience could help me out

 

Very many thanks,

 

Paul

@midlifecrisis - You can't "download" any Spotify content to a USB stick even with Spotify Premium. With Spotify Premium, you can download playlists into offline mode, but they still must be played back through a Spotify app on a supported device, such as the iPod Touch I use in my car. If you don't have such a device, it might be cheaper to buy the converter rather than a new device!

Very many thanks Peter - there's always a catch of sorts isn't there? Despite the length of time I suspect it's going to take me, I'll go for the converter option, but am grateful for your help.

 

Best wishes and thanks.

When the new update for the black screen came out, I lost the ability to find my library button. I am only able to see individual mp3's on the left hand side. Please help.

The old library was replaced by Your Music. Check out this FAQ here.

As a cheat way to get similar functionality back if you want. Make a new playlist folder (File > New Playlist Folder) in the desktop client, then drag and drop all of your playlists into it. The folder view then acts like the old library tab.
