C-64c probs

Assuming the drive's device number has not been changed from eight, then the
correct command is LOAD "*", 8, 1

The drive should light up and start spinning. If it is misaligned, you
probably will get a "file not found" error. If the device number has been
changed to 9, 10, or 11, then you will get a "device not found" error. Try
the other numbers in place of 8 until you find the correct one. If the
cable is bad or not connected properly, you should get a "device not
present" error.

I'm not sure how to advise you, if nothing happens and no error messages pop

PS: I've got all kinds of 1541's if you really want/need one.
