Rescue mission - saving old data tapes

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 6:23 AM

One of the items we kept from our childhood was the collection of recorded MCs (music cassettes - tapes). On those tapes I have found audio music, private audio recordings from my home or school, and lots of self-recorded TI-99/4A programs.


Since I got my Texas Instruments PHP2700 Tape Recorder last week, I am reading in all the programs, mostly games, from these old tapes and saving them on my nanoPEB, for later usage.


It's TI Extended Basic and TI Basic stuff, english and many german programs. Between 20-30 tapes contain at least some programs.


As soon as I am finished with this task, the programs and games will get resorted into some fine disk images. I will publish all Freeware stuff here on this blog.

the programs will be published as disk images. i just haven't had time yet to check if anything is copyright relevant among those programs.
