Unfortunately, you won't find it to be that simple and get a good
quality sound file out of it.
Try the following website(s), they explain how you would connect your
audio (casset player or record player) to your sound card so the Line-out
of the audio component can be recorded through the Line-in of your sound
card. Thus creating wav files that can be easily converted to mp3 files.

A friend of mine from work has done this with good results.
