I've done this before and it's a pretty long procedure. I've only done it on
my pc so I do know you'll apply it to the archos recorder.

First you have to record the tape and get it into a wave file. I use Magix's
Music Editor software or CD Recorder. Once you have a wave file, you may
have to filter out the tape noise, equalize it, and get the amplitude that
you want. After all this is done, all you need to do is a wave-mp3

both solutions can be interesting, the jukebox solution can be good if you
can't move your computer next to your stereo.
but of course, If you record your tapes on the computer, you can change the
sound and possibly make it better by filtering the hiss from tapes, etc.
