Harddisk cassette problem

When I put my harddisk in a removable cassette I get the following
error message during boot:

Probably getting too much resistance or capacitance across the contacts.

But you could try shortening the IDE ribbon cables.. might provide just
enough timing margin to allow use of the cassettes.

1. Recording sound (from cassette player)

Hello, all.

I'm trying to convert audio cassettes to Ogg files.

The first step is becoming a pain.

I connected a stereo cable from a cassette player to the Line In of my
SB32, and tried recording using sox and rec... I can get a file from rec,
but it seems to be in a non-useful format. I think I'm getting the options
in the right order, and using sensible values:

$ rec -V -t raw -r 8000 -u -b /tmp/test.raw
Send break (control-c) to end recording
sox: Input file /dev/dsp: using sample rate 8000
        size bytes, encoding unsigned, 1 channel
sox: Input file /dev/dsp: comment "/dev/dsp"

sox: Output file /tmp/test.raw: using sample rate 8000
        size bytes, encoding unsigned, 1 channel
sox: Output file: comment "/dev/dsp"

]$ ls -al /tmp/test.raw
-rw-r--r--    1 klrhodes klrhodes    40960 Feb  2 22:23 /tmp/test.raw
$ file /tmp/test.raw
/tmp/test.raw: Apple II image with white background

Oops!

If I try to convert this using sox, I get what seem to be snsible
messages, but still get a useless file:

$ sox -V -r 8000 -u -b -c 1 /tmp/test.raw /tmp/test.wav
sox: Detected file format type: raw

sox: Input file /tmp/test.raw: using sample rate 8000
        size bytes, encoding unsigned, 1 channel
sox: Input file /tmp/test.raw: comment "/tmp/test.raw"

sox: Writing Wave file: Microsoft PCM format, 1 channel, 8000 samp/sec
sox:         8000 byte/sec, 1 block align, 8 bits/samp
sox: Output file /tmp/test.wav: using sample rate 8000
        size bytes, encoding unsigned, 1 channel
sox: Output file: comment "/tmp/test.raw"

sox: Finished writing Wave file, 40960 data bytes 40960 samples

$ file /tmp/test.wav
/tmp/test.wav: Apple II image with white background

I'm sure the rest of my system is OK, since I had a the audio output from
a pinnacle TV card playing through the line in jack, and all other sound
(XMMS, Desktop sound effects, etc.) work fine. I tried doing all this
through the Mic jack, too, but with the same dissappointing results.

I think it's the syntax, sampling rate, data size...... that I'm getting wrong.
