At least the Vic-20 and C64 can be crashed by a bad tape. I would expect the routines to be based on the PET ones, because during SAVE you can observe a similar amount of jitter in the signal. The tape routines on the 264 series (C16 and plus/4) are substantially different, and so is the tape format and even the connector. >I need to get a disk drive or a ieee-sd kind of drive, I had forgotten >how slow were tapes :/ My C2N232 might be one more option, if you can find one second-hand. However, it relies on RS-232, which nowadays is mostly available via an unreliable USB converter. The c2nload utility would load a minimum-size loader (192 bytes tape header + 2 bytes payload to jump into the tape header) and then use that to load the actual payload at 38,400bps.
