  1. Repair of MZ-E10?

    I think he meant the service manual--it lists all the error codes. Available on minidisc.org entry for the MZ E10.
  2. Does anyone have any of these Sony rack cards lying around? Do you have any others from the same ad campaign? Looking to buy if you have any from the ad campaign in mint condition! Thanks, Drew
  3. Sony "You Know You Want It" Rack Cards

    Many thanks to those who read this post. I was able to find both rack cards for sale on the internet, one on eBay, the second on a specialty website. Very excited to have both rack cards for my collection!
  4. This link at least confirms its existence: https://www.discogs.com/CĂ©line-Dion-A-New-Day-Has-Come/release/9885788. Create an account and add this minidisc to your want list, and make sure to set your want list up to notify you if someone offers a copy of it for sale.
  5. Sony Net MD MZ-NE810

    Hi Louisw, If you search the Sony Insider Minidisc forum thoroughly, you will find the solution to your problem. The main issue is that Windows 10 does not allow the installation of unsigned drivers (especially with the latest update), and the NetMD drivers are of course unsigned. You have to go to the advanced startup menu and disable the signing of drivers, install the NetMD driver and it is will work after that. Here is a link explaining the process (use option 2): https://www.howtogeek.com/167723/how-to-disable-driver-signature-verification-on-64-bit-windows-8.1-so-that-you-can-install-unsigned-drivers/. Good luck! Let me know if you have any more problems!
  6. MD Cover like those on minidisccover site

    Hi PhilippeC, I have seen this video and found his process to be quite labor intensive. I have not had a chance to translate your post on the Laserdisc Plaza website. Pedrothelion, I will try to see if I can run the html/css code in Dreamweaver, as it has a wonderful preview mode and is more wysiwyg. I found that you can simply delete the back side of the cover from the html/css code by right clicking "Inspect Element" in Firefox or "Inspect" in Chrome over the entire area of the back cover, then right click on the line of code highlighted when you do this, and select "delete node" in Firefox or "delete element" in Chrome, and no more back cover will appear! This was also how I removed the pixelated Minidisc logo, which I will later replace with a vector version of the Minidisc logo.
  7. MD Cover like those on minidisccover site

    After playing around with the html/css on minidisccover.com, I have made a lot of progress in terms of customizing the album covers in the way that I need, resolving many of the issues I mentioned in my last post. The only problems I have when I save to PDF are distortion and I lose the color in the left and middle tables.
  8. MD Cover like those on minidisccover site

    Hi Pedrothelion, I just purchased 50 of these cases from Amazon Germany last week! I do have some minor issues with the minidisccover.com website. The main issue for me is the distorted quality of of the minidisc logo because of the small scale size of the case itself. There is also a lot of distortion if I save to PDF instead of immediately printing. It is also annoying that I do not have the ability to match the color of the left and middle parts of the table to the right (main) part of the table. I wish I had the ability to directly enter the color hexcodes to make sure the color matched not only in the front cover but the rear as well. I am learning more about how I can manipulate the covers by right clicking and inspecting the elements. Despite these minor issues, I am grateful for the website, as these disc cases were impossible to find just last year. I have also had issues scaling compact disc sized front and rear covers down to the minidisc case size. I will try to learn how to create the covers in Adobe Photoshop. I am waiting for the cases to arrive so that I can take the proper measurements and lay the covers out in Photoshop.
  9. Hi, Does anyone know which minidisc blanks are associated with the images below (10MDW74, 2, and 3)? If you would be so kind to upload a photo, I would really appreciate it! I am quite particular about the color collection minidiscs! There seems to be a lot of inconsistent labeling of the product codes for the minidiscs across the internet.
  10. What's Under the Wrapper? Minidisc Identification Help Needed!

    Philippe C, Many thanks for the links! They answered my question!
  11. What's Under the Wrapper? Minidisc Identification Help Needed!

    I really hate the minidiscs below! They are awful!
  12. [WTB]: Hi-MD Minidisc Player Case

    Happy New Year to everyone browsing the forum classifieds! I have been a long-time browser of this site. I have been a minidisc user since 2004 with the purchase of the MZ-NF610, still my favorite NetMD model by far. I was saddened by Sony's decision to end minidisc production. It is still my favorite format for music precisely because there are moving parts and is mechanical. There are still actual buttons to press. One of the things I like most about minidiscs are the cases for the player--I have most of them and just need one to complete my collection. I am especially interested in the Hi-MD portable case (please see picture attached). Does anyone have one available for sale or know where I can purchase one? I would prefer a new cases, but I am also willing to consider cases in like new condition. I am will entertain any reasonable offers and appreciate any responses! Thanks, Dynamicdrew
  13. Differences In NH600, NH700, NHF800, NH900, NH1

    Does anyone know if the Australian version of the MZ NH700 has limited functions, such as lower volume, etc.?
  14. Hi-MD, Bye-MD?

    Maybe it's time for Minidisc to go? Let's see an UMD portable music device! That way all music can go on UMD's rather than on CD's, which really suck. So my wish list... A UMD player with built in FM radio, Line out/in, mic in, and 50 hour battery life with a color screen.
  15. What Would You Like to See In 3rd Gen Hi-MD?

    What I would like to see in a 3rd generation Hi-MD unit: 1) Longer Battery Life 2) Larger capacity discs? I see no reason why this cannot be done... 3) More FM remotes! None of the 2nd generation MD players have remotes with this feature included! It should be backlit too! 4) The cool new display 5) Line in and Mic in ports 6) Around $300 USD Forget about a 1.3 mp camera! Is this too much to ask? Since I cannot find any MZ-NHF800 units left... I'll have to make due with my MZ-NH600D. Drew
  16. Hi-md And Mac's

    Why not just buy an old Desktop PC for $200 with the essential components necessary to install a windows operating system? All you need is a stick of ram, a small hard drive, cpu+motherboard, sound card, and you can use your mac's monitor, and possibly keyboard and mouse. If I were in that situation, that is exactly what I would do... Best, Drew
