What might be causing this and what, if anything, can I do to mitigate the problem. In the previous set of posts on the subject, the consensus seemed to be that baking is rarely (but not never) needed with cassettes.

my first suspicion would be the slip-sheet inside the cassette. The
solution is to, carefully, move the two spools of tape to a new cassette
(I've had good luck with Maxells) and rethread the tape in the new
cassette, then put the new cassette back together. That also gets you a
new pressure pad -- not important if you're using a Nakamichi for the
transfer, but important on other decks.
