  1. Coaxial has a stereo signal, if you plug on a RCA, I suppose it will become mono
  2. In France there was also doubt with FNAC 1rst generation MD blank. I have got problems from time to time with some of my MD recordings with one unit but there was always another unit which could read it. Like I said, format can solve most of the time. I got only three MD blanks definitively out from different brand names.
  3. Very few of my hundreds MDs has showed problems. But it is still possible that some MD cannot be use with some units and once formatted with another unit the problem is solved. jonathanpotato has done a video on the subject... in french ! maybe you can read the topic in french about it (Google Translator) :
  4. Yes NGY this agony of MD is a subject of his own. Myself I have been a bad boy and downloaded hundreds of SACD albums and now I listen to them with foobar2000 + SACD decoder or better, Jriver Media JukeBox. Good news, since then I use rather the PCM mode rather than the SP classic (I have a lot of blanks). The trend is HI-Res nowadays !
  5. I suppose you need just come back to the statting tools if you need to reset manually your initial settings
  6. Once the driver is install, everything work fine after rebooting. You got a problem with your setup after that ?
  7. No need to disable the thing forever...
  8. One of my favourite topic... Maybe you will not find in the topic the exact template you are looking for My alternative more recent in french, please use Google Translator also nostalgia...
  9. Maybe if you can find a electronic shop in Melbourne or an australian web electronics supplier. Old USB type cables are difficult to find nowadays. Try to find first the exact kind of USB it is :
  10. << I am already collecting broken Sony MD main boards for their TOSLINK receivers/transmitters (and other parts) on purpose. >> NGY, those Sony MD decks Toslink (or coaxial) spare parts, are not they limited to 24bit-48kHz (at the best) or this limit is just an internal chip limit ?
  11. You are right, before buying anything on the web second hand market, one must have a good idea of models charasteristics. And for that, the equipment browser of is still the greatest source of information. Maybe you can ask here in the classifieds section for a choice of units you want to buy (always at a fair price).
  12. Why do you need this auto space facility ? In case you want to record from a computer, players like Winamp or foobar2000 have plugins to create space between tracks too (Net-MD is a great to delete them afterwards). But this is thrue, it is different, auto space create a 3 seconds blank between tracks during play. Nevermind, if you have (or buy) a (cheap) Net-MD unit, you can had as many 3 seconds blank tracks as you want. for everybody :
  13. I was wondering, I have family (vietnamese side) in San Jose. Would you accept to be contact by one of them and give for free (except parcel shiping if needed) units and MDs ?
