    I have a DCC (digital compact cassette) recorder and I wanna know how
    to modify an analogue cassette to record on my deck? I did a
    google/google groups search and found some info, but no real in depth
    explaination or pictures on how it's done.

    Thanx
  2. You can't. I believe you need a special premium-quality cassette.

    Yes you can, there is a method of drilling holes into a regular Cr02
    cassette to be able to record onto it with a DCC deck, but I just dont
    know where to find a tutorial/pictures on doing so.

    The mods must be mechanical

    You might try to buy some DCC media to see what mechanical mods to perform.

    Here's a list of sources of DCC media:

    Got a DCC? You see the notch in it, that isn't in a standard chrome tape?
    Get a chrome tape and cut that notch in it. Some brands will work better
    than others. The last I looked, the BASF chrome duplicator bulk loads were
    okay, but that was a decade ago.
