I didn´t try the new version, yet.
If I remember right load"$",8 opened the disk-directory. Give it a try (as I can´t for myself today), but maybe I´m totally wrong!?

You say, you want to load a TAP file, right? TAP stands for Tape, tapes on the C64 were loaded with a simple

Load

or

Load"*",1,1

the

Load"*",8,1

was used to load from floppy.

Most diskimages come in the D64 format, maybe there are others, I am not aware of right now, but D64 is the common format.
