I haven't used my C64 for many years, so today I fired it up to see if it's still working...it's not. It powers on and it's tuned in to my television. The problem appears to be either the controller for the datacassette drive or the datacassette itself. It doesn't rewind, play or forward. There's a red LED power light on it so it has power but seemingly no motor function. The thing is, I have two datacassettes and neither of them work which is strange. One of them broken I can accept, but both? Or is my C64 the one with the problem?

Best way I can see of doing this is with a cable from the C64's Video port to the component IN of my Pioneer HDD/DVD Recorder, burn a disc and load that up on my PC and screen grab the pitctures.

Side B of the tape has a mulitloader though so I can still load my pics but takes longer cause I have to reload the multiloader after each picture. anyone know where I can PDF of the manual?
