  3. NetMD driver (NETMD052) for all 32-bit Windows, View File This driver will install in place of ALL known 32-bit NetMD drivers (eg NETMDUSB.SYS, NETMD031.SYS, NETMD033.SYS). It is to be used on all versions of Windows, including 7 and 8. It WILL NOT work on Windows64 (the usual version for Windows 7 and 8)in any version of Windows. For that you need the (pinned) upload called "NetMD Driver 64-bit Win7 or Vista" elsewhere in this downloads section. To get the benefit of fast NetMD upload on the MZ-RH1 (and MZ-M200) you must follow the steps in the first post here: Ignore that step if you have never installed a NetMD driver before (you will know, if you are reading this) on this computer. If you don't do this on a system that has been used before with the "standard" drivers from Sony, your uploads to the RH1 will be TEN TIMES slower than expected. This will undoubtedly shorten your temper as well as the life of your precious RH1. Please note: there will be a signing error during installation because the contents of the .INF file have been edited (relative to when Sony originally compiled it). You must ignore the error at install time, either by disabling checking of driver signing, or by overriding the default behaviour which may be to ASK whether you wish to ignore the signing error. Without this step you can not install the driver. In Windows 8 signing is forced on, and you have to (temporarily or permanently) make it optional. In earlier versions of Windows it is optional (on request) or may be turned completely off (not recommended). It's ok to turn signing off temporarily to install this driver, then set it back to its former condition after the install. The error will be something like "STOP: are you sure you wish to proceed?" or some such terrible-sounding warning. It's quite safe, FOR THIS DRIVER, to ignore that. There's no change in the driver itself, only the information file which allows it to be installed on more units. I hope this is useful. Submitter sfbp Submitted 01/17/2013 Category Drivers  
  4. NetMD Driver 64-bit Win7 or Vista View File These are the drivers you will need to get NetMD devices to work with 64-bit Windows 7 and Vista. For Hi-MD devices in Hi-MD mode, no driver is needed, however for NetMD mode you will still need this. Compatible models: NetMD: MZ-N1 LAM-1 MDS-JB980 MZ-N505 MZ-S1 MZ-N707 MZ-N10 MZ-N910 MZ-NF810/N710 MZ-NF610/N510 MZ-NE410 MZ-NE910/NE810 LAM-10 AM-NX1 MDS-S500 AM-NX9 Sharp IM-MT880/899 Sharp IM-DR400/410 Sharp IM-DR420/DR80/DR580 Kenwood DMC-S9NET Panasonic SJ-MR250 Hi-MD: MZ-NH1 MZ-NH3D MZ-NH900 MZ-NHF800/NH700 MZ-NH600/NH600D MZ-N920 MZ-DH10P MZ-RH10/M100 MZ-RH910/M10 MZ-RH1/M200 Others: C7NT L7HD 333NT/373NT (Note: PCLK functionality will NOT work with this driver set, so no M-Crew is possible unless you use the XP virtual machine in W7 Pro or Ultimate) Here's a video one user posted in the forums. Thanks muchly, "proudofmylife" A word to the wise: if you want to see what is actually depicted (text), recommend watching on youtube rather than in this window here. That's an option if you right-click the screen shot here. That will allow you to view in full screen, thereby seeing the details quite clearly. Submitter sfbp Submitted 02/04/2011 Category Drivers

  6. Official Minidisc Logo

    Yes, I think I have some of the same. The 'M' does taper towards the angles.
  7. Official Minidisc Logo

    I have a box of 80 min blanks from sony dating back 2016 and the logo is quite big on the front and it has exactly this shape.
  8. Change Language of Japanese MZ-RH1 Unit

    The MegaBass was only on some early units. Later on there´s a custom EQ that you can edit via the remote in this case. The Main Body of the RH1 got no Button to change the EQ. Just try to hold the "Sound" Button on the remote to enter the Menu
  9. I never had any trouble with the RH1 as a playback device. Try something other than PCM.
  10. Change Language of Japanese MZ-RH1 Unit

    I had actually asked another question: Is there no MegaBass or similar option on this device then? I am happy with the PCM/95 minute recording option, everything was fine during recording. It's just the playback on the device...the earbuds or the headphones or something sucks. Real bad, too!
  11. Trust me.. PCM mode for transfers (not live recordings) is a waste of time, IMHO. Use Sonic Stage to create Hi-SP (you can set it up to concert automatically) and send that through USB. Optical in works best with a deck. There's reasons for all this: 1. PCM uses a lot of power both on recording and playback. I've had endless arguments with one individual who was insistent he could hear the difference on his headphones. I didn't believe him. 2. Players and rippers all take a very variable subset of the "real" data on a CD (which is close to 20 bits in most cases, hence "oversampling"). To get 16 bits that sounds good, the algorithm is very special (read up about dithering). There are settings in Sonic Stage but I am not sure they make much difference. 3. ATRAC (and ATRAC3/+) is a 24 bit mantissa, 8-bit exponent logarithmic format. That's why a recording of SP can sound better than the original CD. Especially with Sony's ripper set to "High Quality" (which takes longer). 4. Sonic Stage can also generate Sony AAL (Atrac Advanced Lossless) which is a great source to: a. regenerate a CD b. make a nice listenable recording on MD with not too many bits. I suggest AAL with the lossy part being Hi-SP (256kbits/s). AAL is a useful format because it's not protected by encryption. So no fuss with File Conversion Tool. Having said that one of the best ways to get lots of music onto a MD is to use a deck and record from optical at LP2 (132 kbps), and then upload that to the PC. I've uploaded a fair amount of LP4 (66kbps) this way and it sounds terrific. More bits doesn't necessarily mean a better sound. Oh yes, one more thing... SP doesn't transfer properly. You may as well use LP2 and get 2x as much music.

    I recorded it at full quality with PCM, and I don't believe the issue is with the recording, as it sounds great when played back on other devices. However the MiniDisc itself is terrible at playing it; I remember my Sony Walkman's from the early '90s sounding better than this with earbud headphones. Is there no MegaBass or similar option on this device then?

    Do you listen your music with a good headphone ? http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-quality-headphones-cost-50/
  14. NetMD Driver 64-bit Win7 or Vista

    Hey Stephen.. i´ve just updated the Driver with the ( to me ) last mising VID for the Panasonic SJ-MR250. Rar file is attached.. NETMD760.rar

    Hi mimarsinan, I don't know about the sound quality of this "Turner - DJ Fuzuli" set but when I listen to it on my own system with my PC as source, it sound good enough to me. But electronic music can be good even as 192kbps. The easiest test you can do is to record an original CD from your CD player : source with CD quality, and MD set to SP mode or, if your disc has been formatted in Hi-MD mode, MD set to Hi-SP). If you listen only music from your PC or your Mac, the test recording has to be done with a lossless quality file as the source (using a good player like jRiver Media Center - there is a free version -or foobar2000 or any player reading lossless audio files). Even the PC player can be set with different listening parameters meaning that the CD player test is more reliable. Hi-REs audio files can be record using an analog connection or an downsample to 24bit-48kHz DAC setting.

    So listening to my set on the MZ-RH1 itself, it sounds disappointingly flat: https://soundcloud.com/djfuzuli/turner-dj-fuzuli The various sound modes (virtual surround, etc.) make virtually no difference. Is there a MegaBass setting for this device? I was unable to find one. Even without AVLS, there's just no depth or richness to the sound at all.

    Use this : toslink to digital, toslink, mini-jack, 3.5" etc https://www.amazon.com/KabelDirekt-TOSLINK-Optical-Digital-Audio/dp/B00GZQWLF0/ref=pd_sim_23_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00GZQWLF0&pd_rd_r=6CA6V2SWV353H9PPVJR6&pd_rd_w=OhcRl&pd_rd_wg=AXldx&psc=1&refRID=6CA6V2SWV353H9PPVJR6

    Do you actually have the Amazon ordering link or product name available?

    https://cdn.head-fi.org/a/2905221.jpg https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61M7agKgoxL._SL1500_.jpg The cable inside the MD is called a SPDI/F Toslink mini-jack.or a Mini Digital Optical SPDIF https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcQEd7ss6lQ Note that you can use such cables also to connect the MD to a PC or a Mac with an optical out for your recordings. The settings of the sound card must be set at 24bit-48kHz maximum. A player like Foobar200 with the plugin Post-track Silence, plus Sonic Stage for the editing (needing Net-MD connection) can be used for a real time recording (real SP mode). Stereo Flac files or even Hi-Res audio files are the best for the best audio recording quality.

    So I just recorded my first set today on the MiniDisc. Yaaay! I'll upload it soon and share the URL. Setting track marks was the main point of the exercise, as it is very hard to spot seamless transitions after the fact (especially when mixing three tracks together). But I could only use Line-In! My toslink cable did not fit the optical in jack. I had even purchased a coax digital to toslink converter. Imagine my disappointment when the parts did not add up! What is the actual optical in cable "format" that I need to use with this device? I really want to be able to record my next set purely digitally.
  21. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    Sony MZ-B10 takes 2 AA and is a minideck has built in mic and decent size screen - is meant as a dictophone I suppose or for taking lectures but is a nice general purpose device also other than sony Sharp has a few - MD--MT88 MT-99 metal bodied that are very reliable and decent displays - all MDLP - no tone control, have mic input
  22. Sony MZ-N710 charge problem

    I had a similar problem with my N710 but there were no signs of corrosion. Using a fine craft knife, I bent the little triangle shaped piece of metal that needs to make contact with the positive on the battery. That particular piece of metal had been flattened over time and lost contact with the positive.
  23. Wanted! Charge Cradle for MZ-E10

  24. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    Ah yes, so does OP
  25. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    And I have it...
  26. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    S1, DH710, NH700, NHF800, NH600, as well as the other ones already mentioned. Probably the best combination of features and reliability is the NH700.
  27. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    Yes within the main body rather than the detachable case.
  28. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    Are you looking for players that take an AA battery within the main body of the device? i.e. rather than those with the detachable AA battery packs? If so, the MZ-E300 does.
