    Nice ,ible. I just thought everybody on the entire planet knew how to reuse cassettes like this. It just shows how old I am. I'm sad now :(

    Ah, cassettes. Amazing how many of them are still around.

    Well I guess what you did is that you destroyed the info already in the tape to record another, but actually this step is not necessary.

    the magnet is not necessary.
