Works with all Commodore 64/128 Datasette players, but the special cleaning fluid will allow you to clean virtually any tape player.
Cleaning the heads on your CN2 1530 Datasette occasionally is essential on a unit that is nearing 40 years old.
If you are getting errors reading and writing to cassette, the first thing to try is cleaning the heads as this will fix most issues and in most cases will save you buying a new tape-deck.
