Sounds like it could be the connector or the MSX. Do you hear a loud click after you press enter?

Yes, a relay will unshort the REM cable when a load command is issued (or "MOTOR ON" in basic). That will signal the tape player it is OK to play. But if that is the only problem, it should load fine without the REM cable, which it does not...

Does your tape player have a speaker for monitoring playback?

This may feel like a dumb question, but are you certain which command your program uses to load? (it could be load=run, bload or even cload...)
