    So can i get a straightforward answer on this please?

    I don't have a DCC tape to compare to a regular chrome tape.

    Can someone PLEASE give me possibly a link to a website with a
    tutorial (and possibly pics) for doing this?

    Or if someone can reffer me to a picture of a modified tape, even
    better!

    So you have a DCC recorder with NO tapes at all?

    You might be able to look and see where the feeler gadget at the top of
    the tape is.

    I doubt such a thing exists. Get a DCC tape and you'll find it is pretty
    obvious to see where the sensor notch is.

    Nearly ten years ago there was a discussion in Stereophile of doing it, probably
    with pictures. They decided it was a bad idea.

  3. XWindows DUUUDE: you will NEVER get a straight answer from this Dorsey
    guy. He appears all patient and cooperative and all, BUT it's just a
    ploy:
    I have been asking him for years now how to modify my 8-track
    cartridges to read the 18-minute gap from an Echoplex and it's just
    DELAY DELAY DELAY.

    You should try another newsgroup. Quickly.
