I guess you guys already know but acording to http://www.faq.msxnet.org/msx1.html a msx need to have a tape-recorder connector, and save and load at 1200 or 2400baud, the turbo-r can't :) make a turbo-r a non-msx-compatible computer :) ofcause its 99.99999% compatible.. heheh

The FS-A1WSX don't have it too. Although it's possible to go through a simple mod and use the RGB for it:

If you can afford a TR then a cassete recorder is the least of your problems...
(Even on my MSX2 I never used that port, except to abuse it with the _trim command...)

There is a program (don't remember the name) that allows you to read tapes on turbo-R using the microphone... so it can read tapes Smile

hihi the questions is not if i will use it or not, its just a "demand" of the MSX standard, which the Turbo-R dont meet... Ofcause noone use tapes, but its not the issue here Smile
