    You need a double ended 3.5 lead (basically 2x headphone jacks) one end goes into the MD headphone, or seperate output if it has one.

    Then the other end goes into the line-in on your sound card.

    Then you need to set your recording levels up so that you don't get a distorted or really quiet recording.

    You'll need a wave recording app, I'd suggest Audacity (open source).

    Hit record in audacity, hit play on the MD player and voilla, all should be well. :)
