In Reply to: Tape jacks in the back of my Apple IIe? posted by Andrew F. on November 14, 19100 at 11:59:15:
: I was recently repairing my Apple IIe when I saw two jacks in the back of the main unit. The jacks had a tape icon. I opened the unit and read the chipset. It said (Cassette "In" "Out"). I'm wondering if i can plug in an old tape deck to the back? Or is it for something else? I want to record my own BASIC programs on tapes so is that how I do it? Also do i have to buy special computer tapes or can I just pull a blank from my dad?
What little I know:
You can use any tape recorder but I've read that a recorder with a port marked "remote" is useful because you can start and stop the tape in your Applesoft BASIC program without having to do it manually. Recommended tape size is 60 minutes or less due to tape size. Larger is too thin? I looked in to it once and that's about all I remember. Hope it helps.
