  1. Minidisc Display Kiosk For Sale

    That's a nice item. Not sure where I would be able to put that on display though, if I had one. Pretty nice item for a collector there. Thanks for posting this up.
  2. Iphone 3gs - Addition to my Music

    That sounds very fair Phillippe.
  3. Huge Collection of Pre-Recorded Minidiscs

    Was there a list on offer here?
  4. twenty y ago......... (Guardian music blog)

    Good reading. Yes the comments are well worth a read. You do see a lot of the same old arguments and comments appear, Betamax vs VHS, DRM killed MD, "CD quality...", MD was too expensive etc. Good to see some people speak up though for the format and continued use.
  5. Willing to do a trade

    No problem. Actually, I responded to your other post about this pre recorded item. If I see one around I'll drop you a line.
  6. Willing to do a trade

    Trades can be any type, as I understand it. I was interested in a "home made" trade. Let me know though the name of the pre recorded title you are interested in.
  7. More inflated MD madness

    Wow. Now that's something I don't want.
  8. Earth Day 2012

    We observe Earth Hour each year. It's about reducing ones use of electricity, we burn candles and play board games. I'd not have a Mini Disc payer on.
  9. Huge Collection of Pre-Recorded Minidiscs

    I'd like to see the list for sure.
  10. Willing to do a trade

    Anyone up for a disc trade via mail? A single disc, nothing exotic it terms of media. This would be a "mix tape", or recording you have made yourself. Message me if interested. Thanks-
  11. Where do you buy your blank minidisc or used minidisc

    I don't know of any retail outlet in Australia that sells MD media now days, A few years ago the supermarkets stopped stocking them here, up until 2010 you could buy them new at Sony Centres here, Prism80's and HiMD, you could also buy "laser " blanks at Jaycar. These days i get blank discs by buying them from people I know, or eBay, or gumtree. I'll pick up recorders and decks on online auction sites, often these will come with a number of used blanks. Seems to be ok. I'm building up a fair stockpile of discs, who knows how we will manage in the years to come.
  12. Current MD project

    I used ATRAC 3, 105kbps, this left 11.3MB on the disc. The audio book came with bookmarks/tracks at 3 or so minute intervals, imported as is, so will be no issues navigating through the book. Pretty happy with the outcome. I'm thinking HiMD is very suitable for this. Mark
  13. Current MD project

    Hi all, I'm currently converting a 16 CD (20hours, 3 minutes) audio book onto a single HiMD. A little bit of effort, but should be worthwhile for my commutes to/from work. What's your current project? Mark
  14. MDs While Driving

    I agree. What do you think, safter using MD in a car whilst driving for sure, when compared to iPod or CD, what about cassette tape?
