RECORDING ON CASSETTE TAPES
You can record from the radio or the CD player.
For best recording, use normal bias tape.
It should be noted that it may be unlawful to re-record pre-recorded tapes, records, or discs without
the consent of the owner of copyright in the sound or video recording, broadcast or cable program
and in any literary, dramatic, musical, or artistic work embodied therein.
When you record new material, the cassette deck records over what-
ever is on a tape. To protect a tape from accidental erasure, break
off one or both plastic tabs (one for each tape side) on the top of the
cassette tape. If you decide later to record on the tape, seal the
hole with a piece of cellophane tape.
A little bit of slack in your tape can cause scratches on the tape, or worse yet, the tape
could break. If you notice some slack in the tape, use a pencil to tighten it up before you
insert it in the tape deck.
The use of tapes longer than 120 minutes is not recommended, since characteristic deterioration may occur and
these tapes easily jam in the pinch-roller and the capstan.
