  1. Happy Hopping added an answer to a question: what's the name of the brand of high end sony line of audio gear?   

    actually it doesn't has to be sony.  But does any co. still make high quality CD portable player?  I would imagine the technology w/ a new CD player today is way better than those old CD portable player.  But do they exist?

    here's a final update, it's somewhat off topic: I just try the Ext. AA battery pack, this Sony battery pack should work for most MD or CD player.  As I use it, the battery indicator was at 1 dot, then move back up to 3 dot, and it moves back and forth.  So the sensor of my battery strength changes.
     
    Any1 has any idea why?

    In that case, as to my MD player / recorder, I make the right choice by buying a made in japan unit.  But my CD player, is made in malaysia, so I don't know if that's a good choice, but there is no player made in japan

    Here's an update: I am not go to waste time to try yet another brand name of NiMH battery.  The original discman that I own c/w a AA battery casing that allows 1 x AA battery.  I'm going to buy 4 x AA rechargable for $17, and I already have a charger long ago.  The Energizer brand guarantee hold charges at 2300mAH for at least 1 year if you don't use it.  So my total cost is $17  and if there is any problem, I send back to energizer.

    that's $32.  I think I'm going in circle.  I used to have those sony original battery, and they don't last all that long.  Then I switch to those cheap battery.  Just yesterday, I charge 1 of those battery that I haven't use for about 6 mth., it charges for 2 hr. or so, but when I press play, the battery is dead.
     
    So for me to use my CD player again, I need some new battery
     
    On an unrelated matter, I was at  sony store yesterday, there is a $750 MP3 player coming out, if I buy it, then I don't need to look for battery

    I am thinking of get a new headphone, natural wood construction.  My current headphone is 24 ohm, a Sony MDR-V900.

    I have also use the Sony MDR-V600, which is 45 ohm, on the same portable CD player.

    In either case, I can't tell a difference in sound quality.  But people did tell me that the lower  the impedance, the better it is for the battery to push good CD sound quality.

    The current headphone I have in mind is 64 ohm.  Would a regular portable CD player or Hi MD player be able to push good Cd quality sound on a head phone of 64 ohm ?

    Does anyone else has hissing sound on your RM-MC40ELK or  your RM-MC32EL.  As I'm getting that hissing sound on both remote.
     
    I had an old portable Sony audio remote, and when I connect my Sony MDR-V900 headphone, there is hisssssssing sound. So a few mth. ago, I ordered a brand new Sony audio remote (the remote is for my HiMD player). When it arrives, the hisssing sound is gone.

    Then just recently, that hisssing sound comes back. As the audio jack of my headphone contacts to the portable audio remote,
     
    I have to rotate the audio jack slowly and eventually there is a certain spot that I can get sound coming out from both left / right headphone.

    Otherwise, it's either hisssing sound, or sound comes out from the left headphone only.

    Under magnifying glass, I can't see any damage or wear / tear on the audio jack. This Sony headphone is made in Japan, but 14 yr. old.
     
    Same problem w/ my RM-MC32EL.  You think it's the headphone jack?

    Okay, I haven't got the time to work on this issue until now.  I downloaded the driver from the above link.  It installed just fine.
     
    So I get the same problem, when I load SS 4.3, it crashes at the beginning.  Since the INF is clearly for Win 7, I decided not to run it under XP Compatible mode.
     
    I think I have the right SS 4.3 Ver. 2, the uncompress setup file size is SS43 ultimate, 37,695,757 bytes
     
     
    Regardless, this is the error in detail:

    Why do I need the 64 bit NetMD driver? I have a NH1, and in the past, I simply install the software. The unit is USB, it shouldn't need any driver. So what's the NetMD driver for?

    I don't think I'm having an INF file issue. It just crash at the beginning. Anyhow, that mediafire link is gone, can someone post a link at places like keep2share.cc, which is far better than mediafire anyway.

    Is there a newer ver. of this software? I forgot where I download the 4.3 ver.

    I have been using this software under Windows 7 Pro, 32 bit

    Recently, I got a new PC and I install Win 7 Pro, 64 bit instead. I have no problem installing this software, but when I run it, it crash.

    I know it's an old software. Is there any1 using Win 7 Pro 64 bit, and manage to run this software w/o any problem? If so, did you set it at XP Compatibility mode or what trick did you use?
