In my experience the hardware it is a real mess, but once it works it is quite nice. There are two programs that can sample the tape data, one is TAPLOAD by Richard Storer and the other one is MTAP by Markus Brenner. Both generate TAP files, which are more or less compressed 1 bit samples of the tape data. After having TAPed the tape ;-) you can use some other programs to extract the raw binary data from it. You can also record the TAP back to tape (PTAP by Markus Brenner) or you can use PTAP to play the data directly into the tape port of the C64. But the last option is currently just an experiment of mine, it needs the signals inverted in hardware. There is likely to be a new version of PTAP that will support this option sometimes.
