TDK PRO Hi-MD

Recommended Posts

Hi

Today i received two TDK PRO MD-RXG. One as expected contain golden plate and second one is strange dark.  Both were Hi-MD. Didn't work on JA555ES but worked on MZ-RH1.

After formatting the golden one behave as a standard blank MD but the other one shows on display in MDS-JA555ES disc error.  Both can be read in  MZ-RH1. So i think someone had to swap original minidisc plate for Hi-Md unless it was originally produced.

What do you think?

MZ-RH1 displays 963.9 MB capacity so it for sure contains Hi-Md plate.

The ONLY hiMD (1GB) disks are the Sony, either the blue ones or there is a grey kind. Those TDK disks clearly say "74". I'm sure you know that the 74 and 80 can be formatted to HiMD specifications. But you only get a small fraction of the 1GB capacity.

Inside one of TDK PRO case is Hi-MD plate , capacity 963.9MB so it is not 74 minutes as oridnary minidisc.

It's possible someone opened up the disk and swapped it.. but why?
Also the actual case is encoded so that the sensors can recognise it's a 1GB disk. The actual plastic would need different holes in to make the RH1 believe it's a high capacity disk.

This makes no sense unless someone tried to pull a publicity stunt (for fun).

I think someone wanted nice looking  Hi-MD disc.

I am not big fun of hi-md so if someone wants  that bizzar TDK PRO I could exchange for ordianary one TDK PRO or for loading tray to MDS-JA333ES.
