  1. At those prices I think I might be saving my pennies for a 3D-printer.............
  2. That's weird. Anyway you do not need any software except Windows to recognize a valid drive under Windows. HiMD disks are valid Windows drives. Be very very careful, do not try to transfer "stuff" or alter the drive, even by a single byte (or bit) - you will lose all audio files most likely***. So - see if you can see it in the list of Windows drives (J: or K: or whatever). It won't show up unless there is a Hi-MD formatted disk in the player. **** Note: you CANNOT use write protection (tab) on a HiMD disk - all that happens is that Sonic Stage will refuse to load it.
  3. Just the screen. I cannot speak generally, but that has been the perceived point of failure over and over again. A lot of the functionality is built into being able to use that screen. Service mode, for example.
  4. Sorry to say but the initial diagnosis was correct - the screen was simply dead. Sony never even sold the OLED part separately, the only thing listed is the complete (compleat?) assembly.
  5. Unfortunately no. We'd have to get in touch with Eric Woudenberg, I think he's "webmaster" here though has nothing to do with this site (title from when the two were joined). Sorry, I didn't get as far as the last 2 pages. I printed the durned thing out and spiral bound it and was going to look later. I will do some cleanup. In a hurry at the minute.
  6. Thanks for that. It's now posted in downloads: I tried three different sizes of file, original (35MB), On-screen (3MB) and E-book (9MB). The 3MB was a bit fuzzy close up, so I settled on the 9MB version. As the owner of MD-105FX I am personally grateful, since my only manual for that is Japanese. It's not quite the same deck, but I am sure we will find that this version will do for both machines. Cheers
  7. Version 1.0.0


    This is the official manual for MD-133 from Onkyo, scanned by user zzzuppp. It probably is correct for the MD-105FX, which is a different deck. Until now we had only seen manuals in Japanese.

  9. You did? How did you manage that? I cannot accept 35MB of email.
  10. Hi Stephen


    Here's a download link to my Onkyo MD133/105FX English manual pdf. Hope you can reduce it below the current 35Mb




  11. If you have, for example, a dropbox link to the file, I will process it and make it a bit smaller. Should be well less than 10M, maybe less than 5. Please don't try to use email (or upload to the site) for this. Thanks Stephen
  12. What a nice unit! And for those of you that are considering features, it has MDLP, which I would consider very important before splurging on such a purchase. The only thing missing (surprising, as nearly every Sony unit still has one) is the lack of a digital (optical or coax) input. But those with a real deck somewhere won't care about that.
  13. Actually the following statement is untrue. The CMT-M333NT (or 373) and CMT-C5/7MD all use a special USB version of M-Crew. I have it for the M333NT. So the only connection is a standard USB cable into the unit, the functionality of the keyboard port is encapsulated into the Minidisc (bookshelf) unit. There is also a DVD bookshelf unit the CMT-M700DVD which has MD. A neat unit but I feel sure Sony locked down the DVD fairly tight so it will not be very useful outside its original area (region) of deployment. Some or all of the same units will ALSO (alternatively) do NetMD. The function button switches roles from PC (netMD) to PCLK (M-Crew). So you do NOT need a PCLK-MN10.
  14. Sure. It could easily be that something is loose. It could also be that a cable is cracked. Your latest description does sound like an intermittent connection (electrical).
  15. Not "one chance only to copy" rather "one generation only". That's the nature of SCMS, too. What the limit means is that you can make a copy (as many times as you like), but you cannot make a copy of a copy. There used to be control over the number of copies in your database that you could check OUT to a device. But you're worrying about the opposite, copying things FROM a device (the RH1) to a computer. In point of fact the limit on the number of copies is completely gone. Sony abandoned monitoring this when they closed the CONNECT store, which relied on this mechanism for distribution of copyrighted material (like iTunes or Amazon). However there are still some vestigial bits of the (software) mechanism floating around - eg if you look up the properties of a track it will state the "Transfer count". The point is, it no longer matters.
