Hey guys I wanted to start a discussion on cassettes and see if I can get some help with a few issues. First off im running an 800xl a 1050 and a 410. The 410 does not work cuz it runs the tapes a varying speeds. It's just a bad belt but I havent replaced it yet. I don't have an sio2pc so I had no way of getting games from my pc to my atari. In my car I use a cassette adapter to hook my ipod to my stereo and that got me thinking. If I used that in my 410 the varying speed wont be an issue cuz that tape doesn't actualy get turned. I downloaded "brucelee.cas" and used cas2wav so that I could put it on an old Ipod mini I had laying around. I put my cassette tape adapter into my 410 pluged in my Ipod and was actualy shocked to see the game load! I then went game crazy and downloaded all the best cassete games I could find. While some work many don't. All will start to load but will then either just hang and never get past the load screen or have a load error. I had a lot more luck finding UK cassette files then I did US files. Could it be an NTSC vs PAL issue? Is there sometimes data loss In the conversion process from .cas to .wav (I should specify even though Im using an ipod I am using .wav not .mp3.) I was realy excited, this seemed like an option for transfering games from the internet to my atari. This might sound stupid but my next project was going to be to see if I could transfer data from my 410 and save it to disks on my 1050. Is that even possible? I know Im gona hear that i should just by an sio2pc and im gona some day but Im just too broke now not to mention these experiments are what I realy enjoy about my atari (seeing bruce lee load from my Ipod was more fun for me then playing it). Anyway I'd apreciate any help I can get I'm sure i'm not the first one to try this so I figure somone here has got some answers. Thanks much, Dripfree.
