Since a couple of days I have a Sony HitBit HB-75Pwith a Sanyo Data Recorder DR202A.
I also have a couple of games on cassette and 2 joysticks.
The Sanyo has the possibility to "listen" during loading and saving (monitor).
When I try to load a game from cassette with BLOAD"CAS:",R the recorder starts loading and after a short while I get 'FOUND' on the screen, during loading the monitor sounds good to me, the volume is roughly on 75%
After some time the startup screen flashes on the sreen but the HitBit immediately jumps back to the Basic screen.

What am I doing wrong and how can I solve this?

I have measured the remote cable and it is perfect.
I do not have the manual of the Sanyo, if somebody has this available I am interested in receiving a copy.

Hope to hear from you guys soon,
Best regards, Willem

Can you save and load a simple and short BASIC program? See if that works.

I tried run"cas:" and indeed it has a loader and this game started as it should.
Saving and loading a short basic program is working correctly.
Thanks for your advices!

Remains one problem, my only joystick fails.....
Any advice for a good one?

try diverent volume setting on the data recorder the sanyo is verry sencitive if you don't have the correct volume the game will not load properly. I have the same datarecoder and msx. try little bit more than a quarter of the volume, that's my settings to run properly.
