OR... a (L/R)RCA to 1/8th TRS cable would pull that off nicely .

radio shack has a rca left/right to 1/8 stereo piece that i used on my tascam, i used on just a cassette player (to import old cassettes and make cd's) and currently use on my mixer.

Steve, are you talking actually syncing recordings with output from your computer? Or about putting audio onto your computer from your Tascam?

You can put any kind of audio on your computer... Just run it into the in on your sound card. I have a cheap handheld tape recorder that I write music with, when the tape is full I feed it into my soundcard and record it into mp3's, with a seperate file for each different song idea. You can capture audio from just about anything... radio, cd, tape, tv, whatever, if you set it up right. As far as the audio syncing thing, I don't have experience in that area...

Of course if using line level output, put it into the line in of your sound card. You may have some distortion difficulty if you try to run sound from a headphone output into a microphone input, but just tweak the volume down to get the distortion as low as you can.
