2012 may not be the best time to start collecting minidiscs (about a decade too late) but over the past year I've become hooked. Even though I bought my first MD recorder back in the late 90's I've had a long hiatus and never knew so many discs were made. Ebay has served me well over the last year but I'm getting to a stage where certain discs just aren't coming up. I've even contacted a couple of Japanese sellers who say discs are pretty scarce there too.

I've seen still a few things of interest on Amazon.co.jp (although rare portable recorders/players are listed at extortionate prices), sellers here don't ship outside of Japan. So I thought I would post a topic here to see if anyone wants to sell me any of the discs listed below that they have extra of or no longer want. The discs do NOT have to be still in their original packaging but I would prefer them without any labels been stuck on the discs. So the list:

AXIA:
"Select Your Style" - Green one with 3 lampshades: https://picasaweb.go...153527558569602

IDEMITSU:
Any - https://picasaweb.go...hannel/Idemitsu

MEMOREX:
"Memorex SG" - Any colour: https://picasaweb.go...987264293260146

SAEHAN:
"Windplayer" - Any colour: https://picasaweb.go...566798349386482

TDK:
"Bitclub" - Yellow/White stripes: https://picasaweb.go...654463864314642
"Bitclub" - Black Triangles: https://picasaweb.go...654468159281954
"Bitclub" - US Maps: https://picasaweb.go...654429504576226
"Bitclub" - Book: https://picasaweb.go...345865745722738
"Bitclub" - Circles: https://picasaweb.go...345865745722738
"Bitclub" - Bubbles: https://picasaweb.go...345892593812146
"Bitclub" - House: https://picasaweb.go...345989694446114
"Bitclub" - Runner: https://picasaweb.go...346016983116610

TOPVALU:
https://picasaweb.go...nel/TopvaluAeon

VICTOR:
"Fruity Colors" - Any or 5pk: https://picasaweb.go...780324778361490
"AR 2004" - Any or 5/10pk: https://picasaweb.go...609478376851730
"X(Kai)" - 80m or 74m: https://picasaweb.go...305044035477570
"D-Cruise" - Red or Blue: https://picasaweb.go...304369725612066
"Luna Sea" - https://picasaweb.go...609602930903602

Lastly, I'm also after the Victor/JVC XM-C31 player (preferably in pink or blue).

If you have any of these that you are willing to sell, please PM me.
If I've used your website to reference these discs - thanks (and I'm jealous!)

Many thanks, Z.

Hello,
welcome to the group of "researchers mds".
Mds that I have lined up are really very rare, some bits clubs that you saw on my site, I found them directly from a Japanese seller, I'd never seen them before and I do not think you will see around more easily, and I are 4 years that I collect them.
I have also written to TDK to ask if they have a list of all products bitclub. To date no response :-(
Some of the list, I have them double as AR 2004 and I think some topvalue, and I can exchange them with models that I miss.
But you, compared to a production of thousands of models, have all those products that are less mds of the list?
I bow to your collection :-)
Have a nice day
Sergio

I'll let you know.

Where are you located? I am in Australia.

And when you will have BitClub blanks, you will be able to make something like that :
