Hey People,

Yesterday I was playing around with my MSX I have recently picked up.
Normally I load WAV files from the sound output of my desktop computer and play them.
Since I wanted to play the MSX on my 32" tv, I decided to record some games on a tape and play them from there.
So I picked up my audio tapedeck and I use a cable which has DIN to RCA connection for connecting the tapedeck to the MSX.
I use the same cables from my PC to my MSX and that works, but no matter what I do, I can't get the MSX to load stuff from tape.

I sees the programm, but it fails to boot after the program on the tape has ended.
Nothing changes on the MSX, just keeps loading away.....
I tried breaking the loading, but it's like my MSX crashes, can't do anything besides turn it off and on again.

Like I said before, the same cables are used to play games from my PC and that works.

Has anyone got a clue what's going on here?

Most likely wrong volume level for the tape, there happens some filtering or the tape does not run in constant speed. (Try recording some music and listen how it sounds like)

If you use different recorder for writing and reading then it might be also head adjustment issue.

I think it's the tape deck.
I've listened to some music on it last night, and it seems the music wasn't running at a propper constant speed.
So I started looking for an alternative and I stumbled upon some minidiscs in the attic.
Would it be a possibility to use these instead of cd's or tapes?

How cool would it be to have MD's with games on em?
