I'm kind of fishing around for the best way to make the tapes
reproducible and use them with an emulator.
Now, I may make WAV files of the tapes and experiment playing the WAV
files back into the M100 and see if that works. If so, problem solved.
I didn't think of using the M100 as a conduit for the programs
themselves, as you suggested. Many times you can take the raw media image
and directly extract the program data. The MTAP program for the Commodore
tapes does this for use with WinVICE. It connects a C2N cassette right to
the parallel port and converts the audio data directly to a binary file for
use with WinVICE.
