Has anyone heard about MD Transfer Editor?

5 posts in this topic

There is a program called Minidisc Transfer Editor (by Electronic Design Lab UK, http://www.esdl.co.uk/2/mdte_uk.shtml) very powerful and allowing to manipulate Atrac files (otherwise copying them on HDD is forbidden by Sony's licence). It's meant to be used by radio stations.

Did someone ever seen such a program, does it really exist or is it a Nessie ?

Shoestring/MD??? (as opposed to Quincy, ME?) It exists. But it's legacyMD only, and costs thousands.

The stuff about copying is no longer true. With the MZ-RH1 (MZ-M200) and Sound Forge 9 (or later) you can edit ATRAC files to your heart's content. Provided you decrypt them using the File Conversion Tool.

Legacy MD and MDLP, yes...

Though AFAIK the MZ-RH1 (M200) method would not work for NetMD files, whereas MDTE does.

1500 quid to recover a few CD->MD files of less than SP quality? Better solution is simply play them back at x1 over an optical cable.
