  1. Cool Minidisc Labels

    Re printers i wonder if anyone will use one of the new 3D printers to make some new Minidisc cases when those printers become more afforadable , just a thought a full thickness CD case can be used as a MINIDISC case with a bit of tweaking Just remove the "frog" (where the cd is housed) and insert the minidisc and print a label Using a DTP programme Have fun guys

  6. Mz-R5ST

    Thanks for that link guys I'd love to deal with them BUT I think there are restrictions on sending them to the UK when I went round a few links it seems the UK post restricts them but I will try all the same BTW the unit is amazing been looking for this for 3 years SONY pulled this one out of the bag properly but then they miniturised the lot and we were left "fiddle fingred":

  8. Mz-R5ST

    Thanks for the help much apprciated But as e the Unit was docked and I was unbable to get a mains unit till today, once the unit was separated I found an LP6 battery in it and now its fully chareged so I'm cock a hoop I can see how this is the holy grail for Mini Disc users
