Re: backing up MZ-80 Basic disk

Re: backing up MZ-80 Basic disk

If you use a cheap Car Radio Cassette Adapter you can play WAV files direct from PC to your MZ.
See image this one is from Amazon and costs £3.99 but there are cheaper units

Re: backing up MZ-80 Basic disk

You can convert MZF files to WAV files for audio transfer using the link-

Not tried it myself as I have a Arduino 2560 high speed down loader connected direct to the tape port.
