Andrew is right... as long as it hasn't been recorded on, the tape itself has no format... tape is tape is tape.

HOWEVER... it is conceivable that the shell itself has certain notches, tabs, knockouts, or holes that are used to communicate with the deck and might be different for NTSC and PAL versions. I don't know if that is true (and it may be that they are indeed identical), but it is possible. Certain minor shell indicators have been used for other info in the past.

I kinda DOUBT it and I suspect these tapes would work fine. But still I think it would behoove you to get a few of them first and try them before you spring for a whole boatload of them.
