  1. MD Sony RH1

    I only have about a half a dozen of them, but even that could be converted into a couple of hundred bucks pretty easily. Money for other gadgetry ...
  2. MD Sony RH1

    I think used / new 1GB HiMD blanks are selling for 30 - 50 USD.
  3. MDS-JA22ES C13 Error

    Very impressive NYG! Stephen is right on too. I bought a Printrbot Simple Metal earlier this year and definitely see this as one of the many applications. My limited experience with designing and printing usable objects tells me that the very fine teeth on the object in question here would likely not print at the resolution required to function as expected. One would undoubtedly need to perform a simioar operation with a set of small files to shape and fit the part in the same manner as that used by NYG.
  4. MDS-JA22ES C13 Error

    Don't say that Bruce! We always have the professionals here for guidance on resolving problems like this ...
  5. Lp at high speed

    I wonder if we could perform some experiments to determine how this is done. If we made some recordings using analog at several bit rates, then dup'ed those recordings to another disk, then transferred the various recordings to the PC using an RH1. Would a comparison of the files transferred provide any clues which could be helpful? Does the RH1 transfer everything converted to one single bit rate regardless of its original rate?
  6. Windows 10

    :-) That sounds perfectly legitimate!
  7. Windows 10

    I see your problem, it is probably actually SS rebelling because you have Floyd and Mariah in the same library!! ;-)
  8. Wanted: MD Blanks and Basic Portable Player

    Hey Zane, I have several N1 units I do not need them all. I'll let a good working one go for small amount. I also have a couple of R900s will be a little more. Do you want to playback SP, MDLP or both? I also have a ton of 5 and 10 pack 80 minute disks these may cost more than the unit!
  9. How to clear NV ERR on MZ-N505 NET MD

    Welcome back! :-)
  10. I picked up a five pack of the "Power Bank" cases Stephen links above, it was about $2.50US. Then grabbed a four pack of the LiPo cells for around $12.00US. They work pretty well, but I would be surprised if the rated 2200mAh of the cells is right, they don't seem to work too well to recharge a mobile phone. It seems they will only raise the level of my phone 15% when the phone battery is rated at 2400mAh.
  11. LIP-4WM Battery Rebuild.

    Very nice indeed Jimma! I have ordered two of the small Lipo batteries to perform this on a couple of my unusable cells. Great work!
  12. MZ-N10 Battery replacement

    Nice work Sphig, thanks for sharing.
  13. MiniDisc JE520 playback problem

    This is actually a very common problem ... The JE520 is SP only, record and playback. The "home recorded" disc is most likely recorded on some newer device and contains MDLP content. In later units Sony added the ability to record longer on a disc of the same size at a lower quality. You will most likely be able to access the recordings on the disc using an MD player capable of decoding MDLP.
  14. Sonicstage 3.1

    I have one of these great little units. I suspect the mod was a Sony provided firmware update to allow the unit to play MP3 files. I recall seeing details for sending it in to Sony for the update, you couldn't download and flash it yourself ... I have found that it sounds far superior when playing HiSP (256k ATRAC3plus). The unit definitely works using the SonicStage Ultimate version available in the downloads section here.
