PZX file extension - Perfect ZX tape format

What is pzx file? How to open pzx files?

File type specification:

Emulator file type icon Emulator file type

The pzx file extension is associated with the Perfect ZX tape format used by some ZX Spectrum emulators.

The pzx file format is a generic file format that can store either standard tape loading blocks as well as custom- and turbo loading blocks.

The format has been structured so that it would be easy to implement new block types as well as custom data. PZX files are supported by newer ZX-Spectrum emulators.

PZX files are simply concatenated blocks that are indicated and introduced by a 4-byte string. They always must begin with a PZXT block, but this block also may appear several times within the file.

This pzx file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.

Help how to open:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .pzx file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
