  1. Is it possible to clone a minidisc? MD > MD that retains album / song information? A professional deck maybe?
  2. I bought a second hand Tascam MD-02 from eBay. You can tell how much they have been used as they are able to report how long they have spent recording. Mine had only done 16 minutes!
  3. Clone MD > MD

    It will be released in April. Yes both me and Tim are MD fans
  4. Clone MD > MD

    Yes, I was looking at those but prefer the white ink and more subtle design on the neige.
  5. Clone MD > MD

    I am using Sony Neige 80 discs. I've had some transparent stickers made with white ink. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GzDIcXGlKX4AyqLq6ul7SqZv3ZrGhubq/view?usp=sharing I'm using the standard frosted white cases that come with the neige but replacing the j-card inside. I'll post the full product and templates once it's released. It will be a few months yet!
  6. Clone MD > MD

    This does effect the length but, it's the same CD being copied and the same setting used to sync (silence level detect + new track detect on the Tascam). Also I have come across some bad minidiscs that throw more sync errors to the point I have to abandon the copy and use another disc!
  7. Clone MD > MD

    I have seen some strange behaviour when duplicating minidiscs. I'm using optical sync on a Tascam MD-02 deck. The total length of each disk varies by +/- 2 seconds. Also had some sync errors which means a track is missing, this happens in about 1 in every 5 discs. I know this problem wont be common as not many will have had the need to duplicate so many discs but just wondering if you have any thoughts or suggestions?
  8. Clone MD > MD

    Slightly off topic, if I use SonicStage to transfer the files I have recorded in standard MD format, does SonicStage compress them or alter them when copying back to PC? I'm using the RH1 to transfer them.
  9. Clone MD > MD

    I run a record label and plan a release next year on MD. I've sourced over 150 MDs.
  10. Clone MD > MD

    damn, a long duplication session awaits me
  11. Clone MD > MD

    Had another thought re cloning and trying to save time copying 100s of discs in real time. Once I've recorded the master minidisc (CD>OPTICAL>MD) in original standard play format. Using the mz-rh1 I name the tracks on the minidisc via sonic stage then copy the atrac files from the disc to the PC. Put another minidisc in the mz-rh1 and copy the atrac files back to MD?
  12. Clone MD > MD

    Thanks all, both units are a bit pricey for me. I have 150 to duplicate for a MD release on my record label next year. I've got a Tascam MD-02 deck that will hopefully last for the task.
  13. Clone MD > MD

    Does the MDS-W1 do bit for bit cloning? Info reads like it's an optical transfer? Looking at the MDS-B5/B6P seems promising: 'Two units cabled together can perform high speed (4X) disc cloning, including both audio and text, with no ATRAC generation loss.'
  14. Official Minidisc Logo

    The one on wikipedia is an svg file, it will scale to any size. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:MiniDiscLogo.svg
  15. Official Minidisc Logo

    I'm looking for the official minidisc logo, prefereably a vector or high resolution. There's a few on the web but they seem to be fan recreations with varying degrees of accuracy.
  16. [SOLD] FOR SALE: TDK BIT CLUB 10-pack MiniDiscs NEW

    Interested if you still have them. Sent pm.
  17. Official Minidisc Logo

    Yes, I think I have some of the same. The 'M' does taper towards the angles.
  18. Like the MZ-NH700 only uses a AA, what other models are there? No gumsticks!
  19. Sony MZ-N710 charge problem

    I had a similar problem with my N710 but there were no signs of corrosion. Using a fine craft knife, I bent the little triangle shaped piece of metal that needs to make contact with the positive on the battery. That particular piece of metal had been flattened over time and lost contact with the positive.
  20. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    Yes within the main body rather than the detachable case.
  21. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    MZ-N510, MZ-R700, MZ-N707, MZ-NF610, MZ-E310, MZ-G755, MZ-RH710, MZ-NH700, S1, MZ-E300
  22. MD portables that use AA batteries?

    The trouble with doing that is there are hundreds of results which include portables that use gumstick batteries. Edit: Although 'AA formfactor' yields better results..
  23. Official Minidisc Logo

    Thanks, you might be right. The wikipedia logo is on a transparent background so the tapering is emphasised.
  24. Official Minidisc Logo

    I've had a look at the one on wikipedia, but if you look at the letter 'M' see how it tapers inwards, I'm sure the one on my recorder doesn't do that.
