This camera does not have cassettes.  It has two geared spools that are interchangeable:
  1. Memorize these instructions since you can't refer to them in the dark; better yet, run through the steps with the lights on with scrap film.
  2. Gather all your items together -- 35mm film, scissors, and film template.
  3. Wash your hands thoroughly, or use film gloves (obtainable at most camera shops) in order to avoid getting oil or dirt on the film.
  4. Turn off the lights.
  5. Cut a 36" length of film, using a template, ruler or whatever you can device.
  6. Roll the film tightly onto one of the spools with the gear on the bottom and the leader going to the right.
  7. Cut a 1" tongue into the middle of the leader.  It's just like a regular 35mm tongue, but in the middle of the film.  
  8. Slide the film tongue into other spool. Rotate the spool a couple of times to tighten the film.
  9. Open the camera back and drop the spools into the camera making sure the gears engage with the camera.  You need to get the bottom of each spool into the camera first which can be a little tricky in the dark.
  10. Close the camera back.
