You might want to consider acquiring a simple cassette adapter, and connect your Pianocorder to a nearby computer. I have a 1928 Fischer grand piano fitted with a Pianocorder system and play it from a nearby laptop containing about 4,000 midi files from piano rolls that I have scanned and converted. See:

http://www.mts.net/~smythe/pianocorder.htm

I started with such an adapter, quite inexpensive and routinely available everywhere. However, I recently acquired a direct connect device from Mark Fontana and have been able to do away completely with the cassette drive.

Some web sites of interest:

Mark's web site

Pianocorder Resources

Player Piano Rebirth

My archive of Player Piano Music Rolls as midi

Hope all this helps a little.
