Maybe, but doubtful. This was more of a tape backup device. It uses
DIGITAL cassettes. If you've never seen one, they have a square notch
just off the center of the top of the cassette, and they have two slide
tabs to turn write-protection on/off. Otherwise, it looks just like a
regular analog cassette tape.
