  • You are sure to load a binary?
  • Maybe BLOAD"CAS:",R don't work because it's an ASCII LOAD"CAS:" or BASIC CLOAD file?
  • Motor seems to work.
  • Test to save and the load a BASIC programm first, ie. use CSAVE and CLOAD.
  • Did the computer respond a file is loading after reading the header?
  • A pin-out can be found here.

Dear hamlet I recorded a simple program on the recorder through the instruction csave and response recorded normally and recorded because I re-tape and hear the sound of the recording, but when loading by cload nothing

If you were able to save then I think your cassette port is working fine on the AX170. This leaves a few possibilities:
* White plug of your cable isn't wired properly.
* Cassette player isn't outputting the noise.. could be the volume isn't high enough? or something wrong with the header (I doubt it though since you were able to save). Or the cassette player's audio out connector is bad?

I suggest you try playing back with a different player (e.g. MSX2CAS) and see if that works.. at least you will be able to narrow the problem further.

Dear wbahnassi I change the player cassette with anew one but The same problem and i traid cassette games are sounds so that I carried the games through the tablet during the MSX2CAS program but the same problem

Is there a specific and stable type of cable I should use when I create my MSX cable? Because I use a 50 cm audio cable

If you have measures that the cable is not in short circuit and the connections are fine then I find it unlikely that the cable is to blame... It does not really need to be HiFi quality. Smile If it does not load what you have recorded your self then I don't think it is azimuth adjustment problem either.

Try to write this small test program:

1DEFINTZ:FORR=0TO7:READZ(R):NEXT:DEFUSR=VARPTR(Z(0)):MOTORON:?USR(0):DATA16115,1550,-11513,-9312,-30814,-28808,-21549,-2280

When you run it, it will redirect digitally all that MSX can hear to MSX sound output. This should let you know if the MSX can hear the data coming from cassette and if the volume setting is correct. (Usually the volume should be close to max, but it is good idea to start from minimum and gradually increase the volume until the result sounds same as it would while playing directly from cassette without computer.)

I think there is a hardware problem so I need circuit diagram schematic for it or for cassette line

I used age 5 as a voice input from the recorder and 3 as ground. I used age 4 as the output from the computer to the recorder to record with ground number 1 and use 6 rem + and 7 rem-

I think you pmean pins. in. Looks like you got it bacwards. Pin 5 should go to the mic and pin 4 to phono.
