Want to connect a reel to reel tape player to the USB of a computer in order to download music to a disk.  Out  connections on tape player are a 5 pin DIN and standard audio cables of the larger style.  Can not find an adapter.

USB is a data connection, whereas the tape player is an analog device.

 

You would need to connect it to the audio input (sound board) and then use a program to digitize the audio. There are also devices which will record to MP3, which then the file can be transferred.

 

Other devices which can convert audio to USB is (from a web search):
