  1. MZ-N910 Connection Issues

    Popped back just on the off chance someone in the future faces a similar problem like I did although I'm not sure I'd recommend the solution. I took a chance and bought the same model I already had from eBay, plugged it in and it worked straight away. Then I plugged my original player back into the PC and while it still showed (PC>>MD) in the window, it still did the endless connect, unrecognised, disconnect, connect.... loop. I'm thinking at sometime my player got a blast of something it didn't like down the usb and fried just enough bits to make it not connect. Also cheers to sfbp for the help
  2. MZ-N910 Connection Issues

    Thanks again for your help but I still can't get the thing working I went through the steps showing and removing drivers and I installed the drivers downloaded from here (NetMD Driver 64-bit Win7 or Vista pack) and the SonicStage Ultimate from here. I've just restored my laptop to its factory state running Win 7 Home Premium, do you suggest trying those downloads again before I plug the MD in? I thought a clean install should give me the best chance of success as there's nothing to conflict Thanks again
  3. MZ-N910 Connection Issues

    Thanks, that's what I had been doing though. I tried installing using the downloads from the Sony Support page, some from a download I got from here and also installing from the original disc that came with the device. It wouldn't be so bad if all my disc weren't track locked so I could erase them.
  4. MZ-N910 Connection Issues

    I was hoping someone could offer some advice please? I recently dug out my MZ-910 and box of Minidiscs and assumed it would be quite easy to get it hooked up to my PC so I could use it again (just having files on my phone and ipod is so boring) but I have been defeated. I can't get my PC to recognise that it is connected. I've tried various downloads from official to downloads from here, I've tried installing from the original disc it came with too as well as doing stuff like running in admin mode and disabling driver signing. I've tried on my Win 10 Home pc, my Win 10 Pro laptop, Win 7 Home laptop, a Vista laptop, an XP laptop. I also gave it a go using Virtualbox to try Win 98, Win 98SE and XP, then I tried doing the same using Hyper-V. I've done clean installs on all but 1 of these devices and I still can't get anything else to happen besides it connects, says it's unrecognised then disconnects, then reconnects, says it's unrecognised, then disconnects......(Imagine endless loop here) The many hours of this has led me to believe that either the MZ-910 is broken in some unseen way (It functions on it's own fine and displays PC>>MD) or that there is something very specific about the USB that came with it. I've been through every USB cable I could find, including 2 grey Sony ones and none make a difference. Can someone help please? Cheers.
