  1. It sounds more like a bad battery than anything else.
  2. SOLD! :-D Need money bad for a very, VERY important step in my life. Unit has some scuffs on the lid, and it exhibits the same issue as other RH1 units go through with the jog lever, in which you have to put pressure so that it responds to a push, but other than that, it works fine. It's missing the earbuds, but surely you have something better as an MD collector. Battery holds the charge just fine. Payment through Paypal. If I don't get a response in one week, it goes onto the Evilbay. 300 OBO. Free shipping within the USA. PM if outside the USA.
  3. You can get my RH1 for 220 pound plus ship.
  4. 275 before going to Ebay.
  5. I have an MZ RH1 that I don't really even use as a backup to my main one. The unit comes with charger, original battery that holds charge just fine, remote, and charger. It has some scuffs on the lid, and it exhibits the same issue as other RH1 units go through with the jog lever, in which you have to put pressure so that it responds to a push. I'll post pictures soon. Thinking of getting 300 for it, free priority shipping in the USA.
  6. As far as I know, any regular audio MD can be formatted for use in HI-MD. Sony would have stated so otherwise. About the time discrepancy between SonicStage and your calculations: Keep in mind that there are issues like fragmentation, possible bad sectors on the disc, and that SS is only giving you an approximation based on reading the table of contents, not from a full surface reading. Also, yes. You could stuff 70 or more compressed songs on 74-min MD... if it had the same capacity as a CD. MDs usually have a 160MByte capacity, compared to the 650 a CD can hold. The 74 minutes you get on an MD result from using lower-bitrate (compressed) recordings made to fit in a smaller medium. Here's an MD technical Q and A. Hope this helps:
  7. If MP3 playback is not important, get an NH900.
  8. I have one, but has issues.
  9. I need money quickly to cover an emergency expense, and thus I am offering my old RH1 for sale. The info: No remote. Battery holds charge just fine. Comes with original charger and USB cord. Lever is a bit stubborn, like it happens to all RH1s and needs to be pushed firmly to select the prior or next track. The unit has a small problem in which it will lose power as if the battery had been removed, but it only happens when it's held in a specific way. Other times, it works just fine. No dead spots on the display. It uploads, records and reads MDs just fine. Minor scuffs on the body, from normal use. Paypal Only. Will ship to Canada and some parts of Europe if you cover the shipping. Australia and Japan are okay. Other countries, please contact. Photos coming soon.
  10. The description leads me to believe that's the max the machine will support all right. Perhaps it had 2 slots so it could be loaded with two sticks of 1GB each. The only way to find out for sure is to putting 4GB like you plan, and see if it works. Maybe you can borrow memory from someone else and test it? Yes, different speed memory can coexist, but the board will lower the speed of the fastest one to match the slow memory's.
  11. The recovery partition is bad, so don't trouble yourself trying to restore from there anymore. The only solution I see is: see if there's an activation key on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop, write it down, get a Vista install disc that matches the type of OS you have, and reinstall from scratch. Good luck.
  12. How exactly has the display failed? More details would help.
  13. Though this is not the proper forum for it, I can tell you the Master Boot Record may have been damaged by either the backup or the virus. Your only option as of now is to reinstall fresh. Forget about VAIO Recovery, as it seldom ever works, in my experience.
  14. SFBP, I've seen myself in the need to use such a solution because some computers (even with an optical drive) are BIOS-locked to boot from an MBR on a hard drive alone. They won't try to boot from an optical drive even if it's visible to the BIOS. I had to do it with a VAIO and an ASUS, and worked. Yes, it's extreme, but so is LadyPatricia's situation.
  15. This is a solution that has worked for me, however, no guarantees are made, and no one is responsible for any damage if you try to, okay? All prior data will be lost by doing this. If you can take the hard drive out of the laptop, move it to another system with an optical drive, blank it, and try to install Windows 8 on it. REMAIN IN FRONT OF THAT COMPUTER WHILE WINDOWS INSTALLS AT ALL TIME. THE INSTALL WILL REBOOT AT SOME POINT AFTER COPYING FILES. THIS IS IMPORTANT. Once the computer with the optical drive goes dark, TURN IT OFF. DON'T LET THE WINDOWS BOOT ANIMATION APPEAR. Remove all power, and move the hard drive back to your ultrabook. Turn it on, and let setup continue. It should work without an optical drive, since the install program is being run from the hard disk. This will make Windows "wake up" on your laptop, and it will assume it was originally installed from there. Again, not responsible for any damages. Good luck. PS: See if your computer works with Windows 7, and get it. 8 blows hard, as you have just witnessed.
  16. I have one for sale, but it has some issues. (And no, it doesn't have an attitude or similar, no)
  17. Sounds like the board is fried, and not a software problem. Time to go to a computer repair shop, maybe.
  18. If the tracks were recorded as opposed to downloaded to the N1 via USB, the RH1 can upload as 256kbps ATRAC3+ or Wave.
  19. The NH900 is also a good option, and can work on both AA batteries and gumsticks.
  20. That's the vibe I got, too. Sonyfanboy, if you want to move the music FROM the MD TO the PC, it cannot be done, no matter what version of Sonicstage you have. You need the MZ RH1.
  21. Sescoscuba, please update this post with prices.
  22. Here's Sony India's page with the specs for a laptop with that model. The max memory is a total of 8 GB. It probably would work, unless it's one of those computers that lower the speed of the memory when the slots get filled to the max, but don't take my word for that last part.
  23. Hard drives are standardized. You should be able to put it in a laptop of another brand, provided you take it off the VAIO caddy and mount it on the new one's. You may need to blank the HDD and reinstall the OS, btw. Stay away from computers with motherboard overheating issues. I've Had to rePlace many a board due to defficient cooling.
  24. I think it's because of scarcity and limited release. Pretty much all the Hi-MD recorders have been released in the USA and Europe, but I've yet to see the EH series outside of Asia.
