I have been checking the library for book taps, most are CDs now or DVDs. Found a few book tape I like but not sure of some of the termonology. I know analog will work in my cassette player, not sure about digtal or what the difference is. Here are two of the discription of two different cassettes.
5 sound cassettes (ca. 6 hr., 44 min.) : analog, Dolby processed. and
7 sound discs (ca. 8 hr., 26 min.) : digital ; 4 3/4 in. I have a digital player from The Blind organization and they are about 4:34 in in size and will hold 42 hours of copy. The discs and the 4:34 in dont seem to go together. Just confused, hope you can help.

Analog is recording actual sound much like the vibrations beween an album and the needle. Digital is the sound is converted into numbers and the numbers are recorded. I'm pretty sure the digital tapes will not play on an analog player. Kinda like TV's are going digital and older analog sets need converters.

Thanks Tom, I have ordered some tapes and when I get a digital one I will let you know what happens. I think you are correct though.
