If you have that, it should be fairly easy to play the tape into the microphone, and have the machine record it as a .wav file (which could then be converted to an mp3). That's probably the simplest way to do it, although it may not produce the highest-quality files. If you don't have a microphone, it'll be more difficult, of course.
