  1. Thanks for the input. I think I will just pack away the JB980 until I can maybe get a replacment head cheap. Which cheaper models of sony mini disc decks would be a good donor? Other wise just keep using the JB940 decks I have as they are really good enough. I just dont like having broken things. On another point how easy is it to swap the mother boards of the drives over. Any one ever done that?
  2. I would have thought that issues like that would be handled by the motherboard hardware rather than the optical drive unit plugged in
  3. To save me looking thru all the posts can any one confirm that an optical unit from a Sony JB940 can fit into a Sony JB980 and work properly. The record head of my JB980 has broken off it seems & I have a number of JB940s that could donate a drive unit. They certainly look the same physically. Buying decks for spare parts now costs too much to consider. I bought the spare units years ago for about £70 each.
  4. presumably not any cables other than connecting the mechanism? I would reseat them all.
  5. presumably you had to disconnect cables? maybe it was a bad contact some where producing some resistance or capacitance? I find this can be a problem with my old ( c2006) desk top computers esp in hot weather due to expansion and contraction. esp the hard drives which can play up
  6. well maybe mabe not. The only way I am able to run HiMD and NetMD without removing the refs in the device manage and refinding is to use different devices - the NH600 for NetMD and the MZ-RH1 for HiMD
  7. problem with the NH600? Well I have one and have no problems with my ancient Core Quad system; if its hardware then its your (modern) pc or you have a faulty NH600 or try a different usb cable or a different usb port? I have number of identical smartphones that use these tiny ports and one drops connections with one usb port on my PC but ok on another where as an identical phone has no such problems. strange.
  8. you should also try removing any appropriate usb devises from device manager. I find I have to do that if I switch between hi-md and netmd. And it may help to stick to a single usb port on your pc, I have no problems under windows 8.1 64 bit by the way. I havent tried the Zadiq thing and dont intend to as Sonic Stage works fine
  9. The B-10, are people referring to the Sony MZ-B10? if so then set to 1 track mode. when it stops then cue then play will move to next track and then play it. so 2 key presses? Thats not too hard? Is that whats people here are wanting?
  10. internal battery? surly there aint one? I hope not
  11. Thats why I have got another for my Mz-B10. If you turn it around so the sockets are outer most, then with a strap you can use it while walking with headphones? You could if you wanted drill a hole in the flap so a remote control could be inserted with the flap closed?
  12. well I bet I am not the only one here to have spare hifi boxed away some where
  13. SNAP. I have one of those from new oh 10+ years ago. But I use mine for a small Kodak camera. very useful little cases especially now Maplin has gone where other wise you might get some thing like this? Probably got it from there. They are quite sturdy and last well and dont seem to get dirty. They are soft cases though dont have a hard shell. If you need a case for some thing small then these are great. recomended from some one who has had one for a very very long time. Mine has 2 smaller pockets one with a zip useful for carrying spare batterys
  14. unlike the Sony decks not a single tiny rubber eject belt insight to stretch and refuse to eject? if you are happy with the sound then thats one extra reason to keep the other deck as a spare?
  15. you got the disc out? have you tried another disc? I wonder how long the discs will last as they are NOT just like cdrs - as they have a lubricant on one serface for the magnetic record head as it actually touches the disc surface i think. Maybe try a cleaner. I think there are 2 types - one to clean the optical laser reader/media heater-up-er and another the magnetic write head.
