Anything you can record on will do it, and probably far better than the el-
cheapo cassette's used back then. I didn't have one for a long time either,
but I had a good, metal tape twin deck. That worked 100% of the time even
when I only recorded on the left channel. The noise created by the use of
permanent magnets for bias on the so-called computer tape decks usually makes
it a coin toss as to whether you can reload what you saved the next time.
If you have audio recording abilities in the pc you are posting this with,
record the cassette output to a .wav file on the pc. Then play it back and
feed it to the coco when you want to reload. I think you'll find it works
better than a cheap tape deck ever could.
