You'd need to type in a driver (perhaps program one yourself) that allows the PET to speak the serial bus protocol. There are some projects that make a PC emulate IEEE-488 peripherals, see below. > - What about the following system: > Program for the CBM 8296 in the PC -> program in a tape image (such that > this tape image format corresponds to some format readable in a 8296) ->(*) > (*)-> Tape image in .wav format that can be recorded in a real tape -> > -> program in the 8296 from tape. > Is this possible? What software could be used in the (*) step? Convert the program file to a high-level Commodore tape image with cbmconvert and then the high-level tape image to low-level tape image (*.tap) or PCM audio (*.wav) with c2n. I've tried this when I developed the c2n program, although the main use of c2n is to be an interface for the tape functions of the C2N232. Please read http://www.funet.fi/pub/cbm/crossplatform/transfer/transfer.html or http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/micro/commodore/crossplatform/transfer/transfer.html for a complete list of options. Feel free to correct me if I have missed anything. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
