Hi

I have a little problem : i have found a MSX software (for the Spectravision 728, i mean a MSX PAL model) on a LP recod (yeah !) from Italy and i try to load it. And for the moment, i can't.

I have recorded the track (WAV, it seems OK for me (i have made this with many LP for other computer, the WAV file seems OK) but i don't know how to convert it.

I have try with makeTSX, i have a 7481 byte TSX file, but i can't load it. I have convert the file to a CAS file, too, and i have the same problem : i can't load it. The content of the file seems OK for me, because i can read italian words on it, but i'm not sure.

Actually, i don't know how to launch that : the cover say "write cload "azzurri", press enter", but when i try with emulatos, i have nothing. Many emulators say "device I/O error" and openMSX try to launch the track B (and there is no track B).

I have made a ZIP file with ethe WAV file, the CAS and the TSX. http://down.dandu.be/MSX.zip

Can you help me ?

Hearing the sound it looks like a block with no header.

I can see it's a custom file in blueMSX. There is no loader! Or your file is uncomplete or you need to use the unofficial version of openMSX with TSX support.

With a Hex editor added this code on start of CAS files and save it
1F A6 DE BA CC 13 7D 74 D3 D3 D3 D3 D3 D3 D3 D3 D3 D3 53 4D 36 38 39 20
load in MSX with CLOAD
Found:SM689
list 3000 and replace the instruction bug PSETP by FORP
RUN
