There's a scene in "Transformers" when one of the "section" guys shows NASA footage of the Mars probe being tossed around. The angles are too tight though but it did seem he stuck an MD into a Macbook, from a slot that popped up from the suitcase..

Thats an MD DATA Writer and Sony MD DATA BOOK , (w/keyboard ) there are a buttload of them in Hardoff over here

What? Sony MD DATA BOOK w/keyboard????

I don't see it in the MD product list::

Can someone post some pictures of this Sony MD DATA BOOK? I have seen almost all the MD-DATA devices, but no Sony MD DATA BOOK....

BTW: My favorite post ever on the MD comm page: http://www.minidisc.org/mz-r110pda.htm

Thanks

Yeah, I have two of those units ;-)

Actually, if I recall correctly, a couple of guys took the bait on that one!

You have 2 Sony MD DATA BOOK w/keyboard ?

Also, if Sony would have come out with that April Fools item, I would have clawed my way into the electronics store and bought a handful.

Just saw White Noise with Michel Keaton, there is a scene about twenty minutes in with the first EVT recorder playing Michael a minidisc of EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena). Couldn't figure out which unit it was, will watch again and pause.

Good movie BTW

That is the MZ-R37. It's full metal body and overall sleek look may have been the reason the producers decided to include it in the movie B)

Has anyone previously noticed the reference to a recording device used by Anna in Spooks (MI5) Series 6 Episode 4? Adam says "put the minidisc on top of the cupboard". At about 25 minutes into the episode, just after she stabs the security goon.

Judging from:

a. the connectors you can see

b. where she pushes the record button

c. the rounded corners

I think this is not any Sony, but perhaps a Sharp MD-MT170.

Can someone with that model see enough to confirm?

Ok, this is not an MD unit, but it is an NW-HD1 unit. The movie is "Zathura: A Space Adventure" at about 10 - 12 minutes into the movie, the older sister is using the unit to jam with some Bose headphones.

The movie is from 2005, probably a couple of years after the unit was released. I have one so I was excited to recognize it in the movie.

Josie and the Pussycats (2001) about 5:30 into the movie.

One of the 'boy band' members hands a Sony mz-r37 to his manager to listen to.

The manager and the pilot then jump out of the plane - leaving it, the band and the MD unit to crash and burn.

Was this the true beginning of the end for minidisc???
