Hi! I recently got a message about PET tapes. Probably someone knows how to convert them to .TAP files (or read them into the PC without a PET). He also has some old docs about the PET. (This mail is also sent to him as cc:) Hope you can help Andre Here is the original message: ----- Forwarded message from Greg Renda ----- > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Reply-To: email@example.com > Subject: Digitizing PET tapes > Date: Fri, 18 Sep 98 16:56:23 PDT > Sender: firstname.lastname@example.org > > Hi.

Probably you can tell him what you need most or how he can convert the tapes. ----- Forwarded message from Greg Renda ----- >From email@example.com Sat Sep 19 19:25:27 1998 Message-Id: <199809191725.KAA00432@popeye.ncd.com> X-Authentication-Warning: popeye.ncd.com: firstname.lastname@example.org [127.0.0.1] didn't use HELO protocol To: Andre Fachat <email@example.com> Subject: Re: Digitizing PET tapes In-reply-to: Your message of "Sat, 19 Sep 98 09:55:59 +0200." <199809190756.JAA08333@legrelle.physik.tu-chemnitz.de> Date: Sat, 19 Sep 98 10:25:17 PDT From: Greg Renda <firstname.lastname@example.org> >Cool!

That would really be great! I've got quite a bit of material. I took a look at your archive but didn't see any of it there. Here's a quick list of what I've got: - Commodore Pet Users Club Newsletter (Volume I #1 & #2) - Pet User Notes (from the PET User Group) Volume I #2 - #7 - what looks to be excerpts from a PET service manual or technical description including schematics, parts list, hardware & software descriptions, memory map, disassembly of the PET Resident Monitor (with comments!) - articles from various magazines and other newsletters - various advertisments and Commodore literature - Original PET manuals - An Introduction To Your New PET - PET Communication With The Outside World - Squiggle and Big Time / Machine Language Monitor - Word Processing 1 - Third party sofware documentation: - Microchess 2.0 - The BASIC Programmers Toolkit - Hayden Backgammon - Bridge Challenger - About 30 tapes, most with multiple programs I'll look into scanning what I can in. I also dug up my original reciept for the PET. I bought it on August 1, 1978 for $846.68. It was serial number 0029682. Maybe someone out there has it :-). >I know that there are efforts to read tapes from a normal tape recorder >into the soundblaster to convert it to ".tap" files.
