This is the contents of a vintage cassette tape for the FP-200 compact computer sold by Casio in the early 80s of the last century. This tape was given to me for analysis on the Pocketicaires 2012 meeting in Boulogne near Paris, France. This is a slightly modified collection compared to the blue version with the same name.

What you see here is the result of recovering the files from the tape with the help of my CASette I/O Utilities (http://www.mvcsys.de/doc/casioutil.html).

I used Audacity on a Mac to record the tape as a WAV file and cut it in 13 separate recordings. Then I let the programs wav2raw and list850 analyse the data. The wav files you find here have been treated with wav2wav in order to make them better suitable for ZIP compression.

The two JPG files are scans of the cassette box inlay with the instructions.

Command lines for waw2raw, wav2wav and list850 ({nn} is the program number):

wav2raw -b {nn}.wav {nn}.bin
wav2wav original\{nn}.wav wav\{nn}.wav
list850 -2 -w wav\{nn}.wav > {nn}.lst
list850 -2 -b {nn}.bin > {nn}.lst

The forth command works on the files created by wav2raw. Results are identical. The original wav files are not included here, they do not compress well enough.

The recovery might not always have succeeded completely. I made no attempts at running these programs.

Have fun!
