Re: Loading programs/games to ZXDB

My bad then, I thought it was a Chinese website. I actually placed the order on DHGATE.COM, not DXGATE.

Re: Loading programs/games to ZXDB

Just a warning for those who might be interested to order the Walkman "Tape to iPod/mp3 CD USB cassette capture converter audio music player", I haven't received it yet after one month and delivery status says "confiscated at the border", I assume because of the iPod/mp3 licensing issues...? I order...

Re: Introduce yourself!

I am yang from Slovenia. I received my first computer ZX Spectrum 48k as a kid from my uncle in ~1985 and I still have it. I am collecting also other vintage computers and recently I got interested about retro-Spectrum stuff again, because I see that there is still an ongoing community. As a kid I o...

Re: Loading programs/games to ZXDB

@hikoki - These walkmans might be worth trying out with audacity (will see about quality), unless I am still able to find an old analogue walkman.

Thanks.

Re: Using ZX Spectrum on LCD TV or Monitor

Hi, Thank you all for suggestions, I have ordered the Car stereo cassette adapter, which @hikoki suggested. Back to the original question - As I don't own the classic old CRT TV anymore, I am interested how I could use either an older LCD Computer monitor with VGA plug or a more recent LCD Computer ...

Beginner's question about loading programs on ZX spectrum

Hello, As I used to load the programs in the 1980s to the ZX spectrum 48k through the MC Cassette player, I never understood what is required and what is happening technically (in bits and bytes) to successfully load the program. And why are the rainbow lines visible, when loading the program? Could...

Re: Volk - not Czech game

It would be nice if all these programs from the SGN website from the Yugoslavian era, could be imported into your website. I could help translating a few words / titles then maybe.
