So I used my MZ-M200 to also records my kids voices.I know we can use a camcorder but there is something of just hearing the voices that will one day bring back beautiful memories.

ADDENDUM: I now use my minidisc recorder to record wildlife (amphibian bioacoustics specifically) for a project im running.

I do a lot of repetitive outdoor work, so having all these recordings at hand makes the time pass much better.

I also record bands at clubs (bars really) and concerts. I record w/ minidisc exclusively and my microphone(s) is the AudioTechnica AT822.
It's worth taking note, for those who inquire often about what mike to use, that the best digital recording device is only as good as the microphone attached to it. All live recordings start as an analog signal. It's far better to have a very expensive high end field mike recording to a cassete recorder that a Hi-MD set to PCM using a $79.00 microphone.

I had started out using the Sony ECM-MS907, that $75 stereo condenser described as being just the thing for digital recording. A musician who was familiar with minidisc recording and sound mixing in general saw me recording at a session and recommended the AT822 mike. I also saw a member of MDCF, a guitarist I think, recommend the mike also. The difference between those two mikes was like comparing a Hugo to a Mercedes, which is essentially what my friend at the session had told me.
I had purchased my first AT822 based on those recommendations and blind faith and have yet to be dissapointed. But, an A-B comparison is always helpful, especially when you're talking about an expenditure in the $300 range.
I still have discs with raw live club recordings and possibly still a few discs recorded in my studio with one mike directly into my minidisc. If you PM me, we can figure out a way I can provide you with a few samples so you can compare the results with other mikes you're interested in.

I also use them to record nature animal, bird and water sounds.
Though these days I am using the CD to MASTER and the MD to make compilations for travel music, I do have some nice music from CD, radio, tv and other sources recorded on the MD. I am waiting for some friends to call from up North, she says when the horny frogs start croaking for their mates, the woods are filled with the sounds of croaking, lololol.....
One thing that has come in very handy is my Video recorder with the hard drive. Satelite has the music channels and I can record to the hard drive, edit then record to CD or MD, depending on the intended use. I do have a mixer in the system if there needs to be some tweaking done and I built some hi end switch boxes that also have a level function if needed. I can record pretty much most things and do it in a quality result.
I try not to copy a 1st gen MD recording to a CD as 2nd gen recording. But I have done it if it was a one of a kind and not replaceable. But I wont copy a 2nd gen recording back to a MD as the sound deteriorates too much.

Other uses - record FM or Digital radio programs to listen to on the way to/from work (on the train), a large collection of CD rips, a smaller collection of 'mix tapes', plus some MD's that are transfers from old cassette tapes, these being mainly bootleg concerts or odd things I recorded with a 'Micro casette' recorder, many years ago. MD, use it everyday.
