This should be possible, but tape transfer via WAV files and audio tape decks 
often gives cause to transfer errors. A direct connection of a C2N compatible 
drive to the PC will give better results. Look on for the X1531 
cable and the programs that support it (especially PTAP).

Usually I recommend cbmlink and the C2N232 device for PC-CBM tranfers. The 
C2N232 device is currently sold out and will be available again in one or two 
months. Until then, you could build a PC64 cable, which also works well in 
non-NT/2k/XP/2k3 operating systems.
