Transfer from the left channel only, in mono. It is better aligned with the edge track on the micro.

Playing them back on a regular cassette machine generates a stereo file. Not the optimum IMHO. And yes, I understand that I may be splitting hair strands here but here is what I do:

If I have to rehouse a Microcassette, I will use a good quality standard size shell and play it on a Marantz Model 221 (I have two). The 221 has two advantages: It's the same format (Mono) and will play at half speed.
