Rumor has it that DJ \(M1DLG\) may have mentioned these words:

No experience directly, but I've worked on CoCos for years, and they're
quite similar. However, if you just want to replace it in the short term,
try here:


Most of the items they sell at that website are insanely expensive, but at
$35 complete, it's actually rather reasonable... If you're not in the US, I
dunno what shipping would do to ya...

Dunno if the cassette audio is compatible, but Jeff Vavasour would be the
guy to get in contact with for stuff like that - he wrote the premiere
CoCo2/3 emulator (google is your friend, my friend) and there are programs
that can convert tape audio data to/from wave files for the emulator on a
PC. You might wanna try there...

HTH, and laterz,
