"LOAD" command on Apple //e, flashing N

I'm trying to load games to the floppy disk by playing an audio file over the cassette input on the Apple //e(essentially I'm emulating the data cassette with my phone). Files and other info come from this website (http://asciiexpress.net/diskserver/). I've succesfully downloaded a few games to different disks but Ive not encountered a problem. Just as a preface, I've had this problem with files that on subsequent attempts successfully loaded. Here is a description of events that lead to the problem.
1.type "LOAD"+ enter
2.I wait for a few seconds
3.Play the format HIFI (or 8kFI, I tried both)
4.computer beeps once
5.Computer beeps and displays "LOADING INSTA-DISK ETA 9 SEC."
6.After a few seconds , an N appears on the same line and begins to flash.
After this, nothing else ever happens. If anyone has any idea whats wrong or what the flashing N means, that would be great!

Are you missing the Load address
It's got to load somewhere, right?
Or is it an Applesoft app?

Is the volume turned all the way up? Because I used the same website and the volume is kinda finiky, well... all cassette audio signals are finiky at times.

macnoyd-
The website that I used said just to type "LOAD" and that it would work, that's what I have been doing. It has worked a few times but stopped. I am writing to drive A, I don't know the syntax if it's supposed to be different.
