What is TAP file?

The .TAP file is a disk image that contains information about a cassette tape. It is created through the presence of a data storage tape using the Commodore 64 system. Given that it contains disk image information of the tape, it can be used in various applications such as games. A .TAP file is usually opened or accessed through a Commodore 64 emulator. It is compatible with all platforms including Linux, Mac, and Windows through different software and emulators.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the TAP file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the TAP file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the TAP file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the TAP file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the TAP file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
