  3. Best regards from Peru. This subject is totally subjective, we are also leaving aside the hardware, of course, we are in a forum where it is discussed about Atrac Sony, but attention, I have a collection of approximately 50 Portable Md of different times and brands. As well as players and recorders. The Atrac versions of the beginning of the 90, make with them recordings taking in consideration the amount of Bits of the source. For example I compared a sony player with an MD recorder from the 90's competition, very good sound quality, but now this same competing recorder, with a 24-bit source of high fidelity competition, improves the musical detail , The sound amplitude. There is not everything, probe in a md sony player with mega bass, very well, but in a player, from the late 90's with best DAC competition and with its own dedicated amplifier, wow impressive clarity. Now the theme of headphones! Is to enter another field (but I have tried with only one hearing aid in all cases, high range of course). It is subjective, but yes, technically there should be a demarcation on this topic, indicate if the SP is really pure or it is made up according to the ATRAC Version. Thank you. Saludos cordiales de Peru. Este tema es totalmente subjetivo, estamos dejando de lado tambien el hardware, si claro, estamos en un foro donde se discute acerca de Atrac Sony, pero atencion, tengo una coleccion de aproximadamente 50 Md Portatiles de diferentes epocas y marcas. Asi como reproductores y grabadores. las versiones de Atrac de inicio de los 90, realice con ellas grabaciones teniendo en consideracio la cantidad de Bits de la fuente. Por ejemplo he comparado un reproductor sony con un grabador MD de la competencia de los 90, muy buena calidad de sonido, pero ahora este mismo grabador de la competencia, con una fuente de 24 bits de la competencia de alta fidelidad, mejora el detalle musical, la amplitud sonora. Ahi no queda todo, probe en un md reproductor de sony con mega bass, muy bien, pero en un reproductor, de los fines de los 90 de la competancia con mejor DAC y con su propio amplificador dedicado, wow impresionante claridad. Ahora el tema de audifonos! es entrar en otro terreno (pero he probado con solo un audifono en todos los casos, de alta gama por supuesto). Es subjetivo, pero si, tecnicamente deberia haber un deslinde acerca de este tema, indicar si realmente es pura el SP o es maquillado segun la Version del ATRAC. Gracias.
  4. This link at least confirms its existence: https://www.discogs.com/Céline-Dion-A-New-Day-Has-Come/release/9885788. Create an account and add this minidisc to your want list, and make sure to set your want list up to notify you if someone offers a copy of it for sale.
  5. Hi Louisw, If you search the Sony Insider Minidisc forum thoroughly, you will find the solution to your problem. The main issue is that Windows 10 does not allow the installation of unsigned drivers (especially with the latest update), and the NetMD drivers are of course unsigned. You have to go to the advanced startup menu and disable the signing of drivers, install the NetMD driver and it is will work after that. Here is a link explaining the process (use option 2): https://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/. Good luck! Let me know if you have any more problems!
  6. I do not exactly what he did but his work was like a deluxe album with a small booklet for each MD.
  7. Best of all would be to have MD cases made of card...so much damn plastic everywhere. Scientists now saying that the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050. Was it a kind of card cover that qualia017 had made?
  8. Like this CD case : I don't remember where I have found it on the web. I kept a lot of empty DVD cases and still then, I am thinking of something similar to the previous Cd case Even much more, qualia017 has made a fantastic job here but his pictures are not anymore available, I just sent him a PM

  10. These templates are fine if you're just producing a MD with a single album on it...but if, like me, you're using the huge capacity of a MD to store several albums/a mix of artists/works, you have to think outside the box (sic) to fit all the information in. I create my own templates on my Mac (using Pages or Word) for MD covers which fit inside the traditional case, and have multiple folds to contain all the info, eg: It would be great if there were MD cases that were just a little bit thicker to manage all the folded paper/card.... There is other software for designing stick-on MD labels, eg Discus (www.magicmouse.com) which has been around forever, is a little clunky but works just fine. It has the scope to do all kinds of artwork, and not just for MDs - hundreds of printable templates. A few screenshots which show the Discus process and possibilities:
  11. Yes find it for us punkrockaddict.
  12. hi there´s a german software that does the job pretty well. just insert pictures , select case & Disc and you´re done. I need to take a look where it is saved.Don´t know about copyright issues though.
  13. And with those labels http://www.apli.fr/producto/ficha_producto.aspx?stype=categoria&referenciaValue=&categoriaValue=&subcategoriaValue=&referencia=101249 I got that (MD box) :
  14. What is so important with the MD cover of minidisccover ? If you prefer a sofware than a template in Word, I advise you to use instead exPressit SE3.1 (software still available and free on the web). There is not an exact template done for MD box but you can use one like ZIp cartridge (yes it is boring to use another one but after trying out you will feel OK. The MD template (cover on the MD itself)
  15. Hi PhilippeC, I have seen this video and found his process to be quite labor intensive. I have not had a chance to translate your post on the Laserdisc Plaza website. Pedrothelion, I will try to see if I can run the html/css code in Dreamweaver, as it has a wonderful preview mode and is more wysiwyg. I found that you can simply delete the back side of the cover from the html/css code by right clicking "Inspect Element" in Firefox or "Inspect" in Chrome over the entire area of the back cover, then right click on the line of code highlighted when you do this, and select "delete node" in Firefox or "delete element" in Chrome, and no more back cover will appear! This was also how I removed the pixelated Minidisc logo, which I will later replace with a vector version of the Minidisc logo.
  16. I don't know why, no way for me to reach minidisccover.com from Vietnam Did you translate my Laserdisc Plaza topic ? I just found this video :
  17. Hello, I followed the advice of Philippe and draw two templates by myself. I can say I am extremely pleased with the result. I have attached 2 pdf one for folded template and the other for regular as minidisccover site. I took the measurements from the inside cover of an HiSpace MiniDisc and l'll post my MD pictures with covers when the cases come in. Anyway, it would be nice if you can create a running script separately from the minidisccover page. #MiniDisc Jewel Case Folded.pdf #MiniDisc Jewel Case Simple.pdf
  18. After playing around with the html/css on minidisccover.com, I have made a lot of progress in terms of customizing the album covers in the way that I need, resolving many of the issues I mentioned in my last post. The only problems I have when I save to PDF are distortion and I lose the color in the left and middle tables.
  19. Hi Pedrothelion, I just purchased 50 of these cases from Amazon Germany last week! I do have some minor issues with the minidisccover.com website. The main issue for me is the distorted quality of of the minidisc logo because of the small scale size of the case itself. There is also a lot of distortion if I save to PDF instead of immediately printing. It is also annoying that I do not have the ability to match the color of the left and middle parts of the table to the right (main) part of the table. I wish I had the ability to directly enter the color hexcodes to make sure the color matched not only in the front cover but the rear as well. I am learning more about how I can manipulate the covers by right clicking and inspecting the elements. Despite these minor issues, I am grateful for the website, as these disc cases were impossible to find just last year. I have also had issues scaling compact disc sized front and rear covers down to the minidisc case size. I will try to learn how to create the covers in Adobe Photoshop. I am waiting for the cases to arrive so that I can take the proper measurements and lay the covers out in Photoshop.
  20. At those prices I think I might be saving my pennies for a 3D-printer.............
  21. Ha. That's a pretty poor photoshop...
  22. Thanks Pedrothelion! I was looking for some of these a while back but without luck. Have also found them on the UK Amazon site here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/MiniDisc-MiniDisk-Cassette-Wallet-Hochklar/dp/B00X2KBLU8/
  23. Last picture with a MD, the MD is not at the same scale. A good sale anyway.
  24. Available here: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00X2KBLU8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  25. Mac utility doesn't work anymore if you have a mac os later than 10.6.8. It's possible to make it work on your latest mac with parallels destop or virtualbox by installing a virtual machine with a OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.8)
  26. If you need more MD discs, contact Sergio Scoto : https://sites.google.com/site/crazyforminidisc/
  27. That was a 10 "years ago" facility. MD is dead here now.
