Autoload from tape to Winvice

DOWNLOAD this Winvice with the script files.

Press play on the tape deck and double click the autoload.bat

It will run the audio2tap to create a TAP file and stream it to winvice.Do not use the warp function.

Head Alignment Without the Real C64

Put the tape in the datasette and press play.

Find and run the file headalign.bat in that folder.

After the azimuth alignment loads up
go to datasette control and fast forward and
go to datasette control and start

You will see the lines.At this point ALT+W for 1 or 2 seconds to catch up with the real datasette.

Use the screw driver to align the head.Try to make the lines thin and straight as much as possible.

This is not easy,you will have to try a few times.
