try adjusting the loading volume of your cassette deck.
It could also be the tape has deteriorated a bit...

Also try typing "POKE -1,170" before loading the game, some games need it to run on VG8020...

You mean the actual data reading starts and quits after a few secs? then I'd advise Guyver's tip (adjusting volume) seems like the cas load functions missed out on the data header. Also you should know how to start the tape; is it binairy data or a basic loader that boots up the game?!
(as in bload"cas:",r or run"cas:" for example.... man, this's has been how many years? and I still remember!)

Some games don't run in some MSX... for example, WEC LE MANS doesn't run in my VG8235 (The game loads but freezes when playing) I've used all the pokes and nothing... I can't play. Including the universal pokes....
