Instruction on how to build a data cassette cable, including connector pinout is here.
Why dis a 34 year-old computer system? Let it go brother. You have to let it go. You’ll feel better.
Then come join the most obscure and select bunch of crazy 8-bit retro-computing hobbyists in existence!
The link to make a data cassette cable with the pinout for the trs-80 MC-10 does not work anymore. Is it possible to have it please ?
Here it is from the archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20180107191949/http://www.8bit-micro.com/data-cable.htm
Thanks for letting me know. I will copy the information to my page.
Thank you very much. Does it work also for the TRS-80 MC-10 ?
I think so. I have the original cable for my CoCo and it seems to be built like that.
Ok, I’ll give it a try. Thank you very much.
