For reasons I can't really disclose (I work with an attorney), I have a micro-cassette tape (like what you would find in old answering machines). Someone has recorded a conversation on this tape that I need to listen too. However, the conversation on the tape is about 95.5% buried under what I believe mixing experts might call "white noise". I need to make a copy of this tape and hand the original over to another party.

I have two questions regarding this tape:

(1) What is the best way to transfer the original contents of a mircocassette tape over to a duplicate without destroying the already fragile recording quality?

(2) Are there any cost efficient ways for removing the static on the tape and boosting the signal of actual conversation to an audible level? For example, could I compress the audio cassette into a .wav format and somehow remove the static noise with my Cakewalk Guitar Tracks program?
