soopytwist wrote:My other enquiry, and this probably me being totally dumb. Is it possible to record the signal on the tape as a WAV file and 'load' it into an emulator or other converting utility? If that isn't possible maybe that is something that should be implemented.
soopytwist wrote:Is this a good place to post a technical enquiry? Perhaps there ought to be a separate forum for technical help. It would certainly be a handy place for collectors to go to in case they ever have a problem with an old bit of kit or like my BBC Micro enquiry, somewhere to get advice on how to use them.
soopytwist wrote:Okay, I found the fuse and it is intact (the fuse wire is undamaged). Took the opportunity to have a good look at the inside and there is no visible evidence of anything that has blown or burnt out.
soopytwist wrote:Surely if the power supply was faulty there wouldn't be any power to the C64?
soopytwist wrote:I've got the copyright screen and can Shift+Run to load a game but then the tape doesn't move when pressing play. Logic would suggest the datacassette is faulty but what are the chances of both being faulty?
soopytwist wrote:Funny, speaking about it to some people these days and they think I'm making it up. My mates were fascinated by this at the time and wanted to know where to buy one. My dad bought it for me from a friends of his at work. I had a look on eBay and there are no datacassettes at all, let alone an azimuth one.
