Archiving tapes

I have a bunch of old BBC B/Acorn Electron and Spectrum cassettes laying
around here doing nothing. They're at least 12 years old, and I want to
try to preserve them before they deteriorate.

My initial thought was to sample them and convert in to MP3 format,
burning to CD. However, MP3 is lossy compression. I also wondered how
I'd restore them to a machine to test them, but came up with no answer.

Any ideas?
