Brand New Replacement Datassette Drive and Tape Counter Belt Set for the Taiwanese Version of the Commodore C2N 1530 Datassette Unit

The cause of poor loading performance from these Datassette units is often a perishing drive belt becoming slack, or more commonly kinked where it has sat without moving around the drive pulley for 30 years or so.
This kink then becomes a permanent feature of the belt causing it to jump and slip.

The tape counter belts don't usually snap or degrade, but can slacken off over time and may start to slip.

These square section belts are of identical design and size to the originals but made from modern, more resilient materials for the version of the 1530 C2N unit which was made in Taiwan.

It is important to identify where your Datassette was manufactured as the drive mechanisms are different and so are the belt sizes.  This does matter - look on the bottom of your unit where the country of manufacture is shown.

 If you can't find the spares you need in the shop, check our website where many more items are available. 

We are happy to combine multiple purchases to save on shipping costs - just buy your items, then request an invoice.
If you pay for your items individually, we will send you a PayPal refund, but the savings will not be as much.

See the “Shipping and Payment” tab for postage costs.
