Hi All

I am new to the MSX, i got my first this morning at a car boot sale for £1, its a Toshiba HX10, now i have found out how to load (CLOAD, RUN) and i have made an 8pin to 5pin din cable to conect a tape player to the mas and another to conect the pc sound card to the msx but now heres my problem i have downloaded cas and a rom files and caslink and MicroWAVeRunner but i can`t get any joy in loading anything to the msx, i found a basic program on here to type in and then play the wav file caslink made but i heard nothing from the msx, if there is somthing bust what could it be?
Plus are there any floppy interfaces for the msx1 to build on the net?

Many Thanks

You want to build your own disk drive?
I assume, from looking at pictures of the HX10, that it doesn't have a disk drive.
So that sounds like quite the undertaking.

The MSX won't make a sound while loading from tape. It should just print messages on the screen, lilke:

Found: Waver
(or whatever the name of that file is.)

Well, sometimes you can find separate diskdrives incl interface on ebay.
Have a look at www.hansotten.com/index.html there you can find almost everything about MSX.
