@eimaster you can try as well adding this app "Volume Booster goodev" (available on android).
At least something is coming up for you, on mine nothing is found or displayed on screen when loading.

I don't know what tests you have done, it occurs to me that you put the mobile in airplane mode, that you try to load a wav from the pc to rule out that it is a cable problem. You can also try the Playzx app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.baltazarst...) or my website "http://playtzx.mygamesonline.org/" from the mobile or from a pc; here you have files to test "https://tsx.eslamejor.com/"

Older phones do not have the volume limitation and are great. Newer phones are buggers.

plugged in only the white cable without connecting the datarecorder. and that works also, old phones without the volume limitation is the trick. 3600 bps and it load relative fast. learned something again Big smile
the phone is a samsung gt-56500d this model works fine voor this purpose.

Out of frustration msx.org should keep a list of devices which proved successful in loading games into real MSX computers like mobiles phones, media players, laptops, etc. to make it easier for us to get one of those devices. Personally, I have some old phones and I don't want to go buy a new battery for it and end up discovering it is not suitable for the task. And I don't want to go buy a new device and discover it is not suitable for the task. Or go buy a new device while one of my old phones is proved working in msx.org list. So...
Please specify in details the mobile you are using such as:
1. mobile manufacturer's company's name (Samsung or LG, or any other one)
2. Mobile name
3. Mobile internal name (found on sticker under the battery if any)
4. Mobile model
5. Any other distinguishable mobile informations (even its color)
6. Provide a picture or more for the mobile

Just put your old devices on external power to test (charge)? No need to replace the battery...

I I tried it, to start the phone withoud the battery,didn't want to start up, my phones where lying form a couple of years in a draw, seems the phone will need to have some power from the battery to start up, I've the battery is completly dead, i think it will not work,in any case, that's my experience.
