  1. Sitting at my desk eating lunch and reading this made me smile.
  2. MZ-E2 doesn’t sounds

    The disc you are playing is not MDLP is it?
  3. Clone MD > MD

    After seeing your labeled up disc I thought I'd dig this out from my collection. It's on N5MD which was originally started as a MiniDisc only label. I can only assume Tim Koch is an MD fan, which is great. I like the look of your disc and will be interested in a copy once it is released. Please let us know the details.
  4. Clone MD > MD

    Apart from the MDW80T, the latest and current disc.
  5. The Return to MD

    You may know this already but unfortunately SonicStage doesn't recognise FLAC files. You will have to use something like FLAC Frontend to change them back to WAVs before importing them into SonicStage for transfer to your NH1 once you get your USB cable. The MZ-NH1 is a fantastic bit of kit and I'm sure you'll be very happy with it. I love mine:)
  6. http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/news/14753045.Cameron_has___1m_memoirs_backed_up____on_MiniDisc/ The first time I've heard of someone using MD due to it being "unhackable".
  7. It looks like you're going to have to keep it in one piece and just welcome a new member to your MD family:)
  8. Google has shut down Picasa so all the photo albums that were there have been transferred to Google Photos but unfortunately that means the pictures are inaccessible to anyone but the owner unless they set up new public albums, which is very annoying. The same thing has happened to the MD Channel galleries.
  9. MZ-RH10 HiMD repair?

    Hi mimerskol. I really hope you are able to get your MZ-RH10 up and running, but if this proves impossible I would be very interested in buying it from you if the display works as my RH10 has the common oled display fail issue. If you have no luck repairing it and are interested in selling, please let me know:)
  10. Blank Disc Catalog

    Those sites don't include every disc ever made, but I've not seen any more comprehensive sets of pictures.
  11. SonyMZ-R30 issues

    From past experience, game consoles and Blu-Ray or DVD players don't transfer the track marks for some reason. I am at a loss as to why they would not transfer from the Arcam CD player though. I have never had any issues transfering track marks via optical to any MD deck or portable from any dedicated CD player with any CD. The only difference is that I don't use Syncro Rec. I just rec/pause the recorder, play/pause the player and then start them at the same time. That might be worth a try but I can't really see why it would make any difference.
  12. Sonic Stage Folder view?

    The problem I have is that if you import an album such as, for the sake of argument "Now That's What I Call Music! 93" in MP3 format and each track has the album title and artist metadata then SonicStage splits it up into 44 seperate albums called Now 93, one by each of the 44 artists. Unless I'm missing something then the only way to transfer the album onto MiniDiscs with the tracks ordered correctly is to read through the tracklisting and painstakingly select each track individually before transfer. To change the album to a the same artist or no artist at all would in this example require changing the artist on all 44 "albums" individually. I have played around with this a lot and have found no way around it apart from erasing the artist data from the MP3s before importing, which is also a pain. Maybe I'm just being clueless Stephen.
  13. Sonic Stage Folder view?

    Nemo, I would really like a copy of your app if you'd be willing to let me have it. It drives me mad when you import a compilation album into SonicStage and it splits the album up according to the artist metadata.
  14. Hi Steve. A NiMH battery should charge just fine using the charging stand and it will likely give better performance and none of the memory effects of the original NiCd.
  15. The new blank disc from Sony. Is it the last?

    I got them from a Japanese seller on eBay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=u-japan&_armrs=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xminidisc.TRS0&_nkw=minidisc&_sacat=0 This new model was released in November as far as I can tell. The five packs even come in an old school cardboard box with five individually wrapped discs inside which is a nice touch. Sony still manufacture the Neige discs as well unbelievably. I picked up a few of those in their new 2015 individual packaging a couple of months ago.
