How can I convert analog audio files to digital on a Mac?

I have a male to male patch cord, but that won't work because it the Mac uses a built in mic.

I can't find an iMic anywhere. Any other suggestions?

    Analog file? Maybe you mean how can you use a line-level (0.5 to 1.0 volt equalized) signal when you have no mini-jack for audio in. You need the iMic, link below. I didn't know it was hard to find.

    Well I have tried this on WinXP and Linux but I dunno about Mac, should be the same. You need a special speaker cord.

    I use a double sided 3.5mm speaker cord that came with my Winfast TV Tuner card. To set it up you put one end into the Earphones part of your Tape Recorder/CD Player, then you put the other end into "Line In" on your computer. To record it just use Audacity's StereoMix.

    Hope this helps.
