[Coladam] Turning tapes into DDPs

What is the best type of tool to use (all I have, actually, are scissors
and philips head screwdrivers) to drill the additional holes necessary to
turn an audio tape into a DDP?

Also, is it possible to format a blank audio tape into a DDP without
running a full copy?

Finally, is it possible to make a DDP backup via a single-cassette tape
deck by doing the following:

1) Plug the LINE OUT of the tape deck into the LINE IN (not the mic jack,
but the line in jack) of a desktop computer's sound card.

2) Record the SOURCE DDP into the computer as a 44100 kHz WAV.

3) Plug the LINE OUT of the computer into the LINE IN of the tape deck.

4) Record the WAV into the tape deck onto the DESTINATION DDP.

Would that work?
