Used to do that all the time. Get some other cassette (the kind held together with screws), open it, and remove all the tape, leaving the internal pieces exactly as they are. Also, prior to removing tape, take special note of how tape is threaded, and make sure to follow that pattern when replacing w/old tape. If the old cassette is sealed, you can CAREFULLY use a pocket knife to cut it, and pry apart the halves. Place old tape in new casing. Transfer old tape to CD asap.
