with some games, the main file is not always the one that loads with the above method. You can also try typing in...

LOAD"$",8
LIST


then choose the filename that looks most like it is the main executable for the game you can to load, it will usually be of filetype PRG, then just type

LOAD"filename",8,1
RUN

Go to a site like c64.com you can download a game from there. Most files that end in .D64 will work. Put them in the RD folder on your card. Start the emulator, press L, fine the D64 file you want to load and press A. once you see the blue screen again with the cursor flashing, press R then game should now load. If you see an error message on the screen, try a different .D64 file.

in which case, after attatching the .d64 file...

using the virtual keyboard type-

LOAD"$",8<ENTER>
LIST<ENTER>

you should see a list of files that can be found on the d64 file.
Now look near the top of the list for the filename of the game you want to load, it should have  PRG after it.

Type in the following -
LOAD"FILENAME",8,1
RUN

replace FILENAME with the name of the file you want to load.
like this...
