I have found that you need to include information about the delimiters if you are working in a Windows environment. I use TABs to delinieate fields and then I use the following command:

load data infile \'d:/test.txt\' 

into table test 

fields terminated by \'t\'

lines terminated by \'rn\';

Notice the need to specify the Carriage Return, New Line combination. Without it this doesn\'twork.

Alternatively have you tried
load data local infile ...
