Hey dear people Wink

Well i am like the most people here not new to msx. I took my old Goldstar off the attic and installed the good old boy again. Together with its Philips datarecorder.
Offcourse i have zero tapes Wink, guess i recorder some radioshows over the good old Beeeeeep.
Now i know there are some programs like cas2wav etc, but i wonder, is there no windows programm which can convert bin, or cas to mp3 or wav?

I really would like some help on this point ;: Cool

given that you have a cable for datarecorder - you can use this cable to connect it to computer and use the caslink version 3 by Alexey Podrezov - search forum there's topic for it. i used it many years back (just for curiousity, it was version 2 at that time) and it worked fine

CASLink3 and CAS2WAV are are great but because some games rely on Motor control (Pausing the playback when screens load etc) not all will work. I use a CASDuino to load CAS files without conversion and it loads at up to 3600 baud as well. If I want to try ROM files then I use CASLink3 to convert to wav then wav2cas to get a CAS file and then load it on my CASDuino.
Alternatively you can try TAPDancer or MSX2CAS on your android phone but they have the same issues as a PC in that they don't have any motor control.

SofaCas (Windows application) has motor control, but it requires you to build a special cable (instructions are on my website IIRC).

Ah, sorry, here they are:

To use -c option, connect the MSX REM cable to COM port pins DCD and RTS
(pins #1 and #7 on DE-9 plugs), order has no importance.
