8 Track And CassetteTapeDifference?

How are these tapesdiffer from each other in general?

8-track is a closed loop tape. It just keeps on going through all the tracks and then starts again.
You have track choice buttons on the players.
I have a load of Elvis Presley and others on 8-track tapes, and three 8-track players.
They were commonly fitted into cars through the 60s and 70s because they offered non-stop music withut having to fiddle with anythig.
Quality wasn't too brill because the 8 tracks were on 1/4 inch tape, leaving only a /32nd for each stereo track,actually a bit less to allow for less the clearance space between tracks.

you ju's gotta have one kid....Chevvie's no pick-up girls Chevvie without one

Cassette tapes were very popular as an alternative to the big and heavy full size reel to reel tape players and recorders that preceded them, like the well known and beautifully built Akai series

They use 1/4 inch tape that runs end to end, not as a loop.
The quality could be very good and they were used with home hifi systems as well as being fitted into cheap stereo stuff.
Cassette recorder in the middle, CD player on top...a bit messy and not a good way to treat good quality hifi components

Nakamichi were the stuff to dream for and I was lucky to find a Nakamichi 500 very cheaply but I don't have a Dragon....Arrrrggghhh.....gimme gimme haha

Portable cassette recorders and players are still used and the tapes are still available but CD payers are much more common now, as of course is MP3
I have a Hitachi pocket portable cassette recorder modified by a friend at the BBC engineering labs over thirty years ago and it still works fine and has, after the BBC mods, an even better sound than when I bought it.
It's very good for reportage, being small and easy to carry, and for nature recordings such as birdsong, for which I built a parabolic sound reflector feeding a Sennheiser microphone.

Here is the first of the pocket type of cassette recorder, a Philips quite similar to the Hitachi, and the first pocket portable cassette recorder to be marketed.
Philips invented the compact audio cassette tape format in 1962 and first showed it at the Berlin Radio Show in 1963.
