Is this 1/8-inch wide tape or cassette-width tape? Cassette width is
closer to 1/7-inch, not 1/8-inch. As you know it's 0.150" wide. I
think you need an A80QC to do 0.150" tape tricks <smile>. I reload
all the oddball 0.150 tape into standard cassette shells and usually
use a Dragon or either the Tascam 4- or 8-track.
