... if PayPal does not work or any other problem exists, the problem can be solved by contacting me.

hi-

Well, if paypal works and software installed ok on a PC (as it is for we) how can I make another installation on a 2nd home-PC...?

I stumbled across this today and thought it would be nice to use with my Hi-MD RH910. Alas, the program does not recognize a Hi-MD disk, or perhaps even a Hi-MD recorder. It seemed to wake up when I plugged in a NE-410. Anyone else using this with a HI-MD recorder?

Hi all :D

I want to inform you that I uploaded the new version 1.2 of my app "win nmd". A very innovative new feature is freedb access for titling.

This makes the following possible (usage instructions):

1. record a CD via optical or analog connection from your HiFi CD deck to MD

2. connect the NetMD player to the PC

3. select all songs of the album and choose "Get album info (freedb)" from the context menu.

4. the songs on MD are named after the album information stored in the freedb internet database. (similar to cddb)

(this only works if the track length of the titles on MD are similar to the ones on CD and if you record all tracks of the CD and then select all songs of the album in the app)

The feature list from my website:

* Records and saves a number of individual tracks from MD on the PC as MP3 or WAV file.

* Optionally records a number of MD tracks as one file on the PC.

* Playback control of MD

* Titling and reordering of tracks

* Copy a list of the MiniDisc contents to the clipboard

* "freedb"-access, get title information for CD albums that are on MD

* Super easy titling in Japanese/Chinese, automatic code page conversion

* Languages: Chinese/German/English

I hope you like this new version.

Chris

this program is essentially obsolete when using a Hi-MD... You can just upload via SonicStage.

Thank you. I'm hopeful I can bypass Sonic Stage someday to pull the live recordings off my MD without worrying how much I checked in or out.

Larry, welcome to the forums btw - if you are using Hi-MD for recording together with the latest version of Sonic stage you can upload as many times as you like.

If you are determined to do it in realtime, Marcnet's Hi-MD Renderer has all the functions of WinNetMD under its MD Recorder function. You still need SonicStage intalled, however.

But really, get a stable version of SonicStage (like 3.4 or 4.2) and upload all you want.

Does the Hi-MD renderer work with normal MDs?

You need a NetMD unit, one with a USB port. You need to connect the USB AND a miniplug to miniplug cord from headphone out to your computer's line-in. And you will be recording in real time.

The MD Recorder function does not upload MD recordings as computer files. It tells SonicStage to play back the songs one at a time, starts a recording program and opens a new file for each song. Just like WinNMD.

The only way to upload audio files from regular MD faster than real time recording is with the MZ-RH1.

Hello ,

Trying to get the MD recorder function to work from Hi-MD Renderer , but it doesn't make any output file.

It seems to record well , but no processor working i see , and after the track is played (recorded) it tells me the file is succesfully saved as ...

But , NO file founded yet , and I know how a computer works btw , so I even tried the search function for new files , but none made.

Is there any dll or so needed to be placed in the "system32" folder , or do I have to do something with SonicStage I'm not aware of ?

Or doesn't it work at all with NetMD discs ??

It seems I have to buy Winnmd , or is there any solution for this.

Oh , btw : I want to 'upload' files from my MD to the PC .

Thanks , Kuoi

Many thanks in advance, Kuoi

Well I installed the programme, and now Sonicstage won't recognise when I've got a disc loaded. I doubt this is just coincidence as it has been working fine recently.

Anyone else had this problem? What shall I do?

Thanks.

Has anyone tried this combination successfully?

I have a laptop with no line-in, only mic input. When I connect my MZ-N1 to the computer using line-out and mic input and use Win nmd to transfer from MD to PC, the result is terrible - noisy, hissy, not acceptable at all. I was wondering, if I used the iMic, which bypasses the soundcard and connects to the USB, the resulting recording would be much improved?

Does anyone know if Win nmd will recognize the iMic as an audio input?

Perhaps Christian Klukas can shed some light.

thanks

Mitch

i think some are not suitable for pc<_<

I doubt that he has any problems anymore...judging that post you quoted is from 2003 :lol:

And if there are problems, just use SS 4.3...and for uploading stuff from MD's (usb) , you'll need the MZ-RH1

Hello (if anyone is still reading this thread!)

I want to convert some of my MD tracks to MP3 and so I downloaded the Sony tool only to realise that

I had no way of getting the ATRAC files onto the PC! So, I downloaded Win NMD but, in spite of having loaded all

the prerequisites (.net and ,directX, latest Sonic Stage) the system test still report incompatibility.

(I am using XP SP2 and SP3 on another PC).

All I can think of is:

Win NMD is not recognising my MD system(s) or

It does not like my internet connection

Any suggestions?

Does the internet have to be connected for it to work?

I have tried an net MD "bookshelf" Stereo system and a couple of NetMD portables.

But nothing sems to improve the failure.
