All my audio cassettes rewound just by sticking your finger on one of the spindles and turning it. I never noticed the tab, BT. I'm going to have to dig one out and look for it.

Maybe that was on TV loops or something... big cassettes.

This question must be beyond semi-common knowledge. And it can't be Googled easily either. I looked
So in order to move the game along, along into a new generation , You do it by holding the cartridge so the tape is hanging down, grabbing one side with your finger and thumb, and giving it a firm jerk down, leaving go. This gets this insides to moving and it rewinds itself. Not to mention getting your buddy to thinking you are totally screwing up his tape
It defies logic

Somebody ax somethin'
