Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum, but like pretty much everyone else, grew up on ATARI and haven't ever really left it. I have alot of software on cassette, but my 410 program recorder has given up the ghost recently. :(

Anyone out there have a working ATARI 410, 1010 or XC11/12 cassette drive that they're willing to part with? I've checked CL & ebay of course, but every ad is for a non-working (for parts) or "untested" unit, which I have to assume means "not working". I am willing to pay (not top dollar) of course, as long as you can confirm that it does work (load and save programs).

Please let me know if we can work something out. Thanks!

Where are you located? Buying on Ebay is a crapshoot with the age of the units and degrading rubber belts. I have a few 410 units I could let go, and have new belts to put on them.

That would be great! I'm in the Dallas area if you're willing to pack one up and mail it. Please PM me so we can work out the details. THANKS! :)

I'll have to dig one out, replace the belts and test it out, so it might be a week or two... If anyone else has one before then feel free to jump on it.

You could call Best Electronics and get a belt kit for yours.

Probably too much postage for you, but here is a brand new XC12: http://rewindgames.e...order-new-boxed

I have ordered from Rewindgames before.  Good service to US.  I think B&C or Best may still have XC12s.  But not at that cost.

Speaking of datarecorders.  Has anyone actually seen an XC11 in the wild.  I would like one.

i would do more research on the 1010 sticker in the window  it seems that an orange vs the silver sticker determines quality. I am not sure which one is better but i have a silver stickered unit i will never use.

Right, you want the orange sticker, Japan one.  I think the silver is Hong Kong, or Taiwan.

Just to follow up on my original request, I did eventually acquire a working 410 with newly replaced belts.
