It might work, but... What the audiophiles call wow and flutter will be BAD... it's where the speed will be inconsistant as the standard rubberband expands and contracts under the load. it will probably render the playback of a CoCo Cassette as full of errors. It's best to stick with the belts, as while they are rubber, are stiffer and don't stretch and contract as much. If the old belt is intact, take it with you to get the new one, and allow for stretch. If the old one has disintigrated... well... attempt to measure it's original size if you can't find the original size somewhere.

Hmmmm, not a bad idea. But in the meantime, I'm gonna open it up and see if
maybe the "run-of-the-mill" rubber band will do. :)
