  4. Sorry for your loss, Stephen. My condolences to you and your family.
  5. i registered just to post my thanks for your tutorial, pureangst. i got my mz-n1 recording again.
  6. I don't know if that model even supports Virtualization, but I would try this link: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/laptop-pc-vgn-series/vgn-fz240e/articles/00049036 Then review these steps and check if you actually have the option in the BIOS: Press F2 or F3 when restarting: Alternatively: F1 If your VAIO has an ASSIST key, try to press and hold it while you power on the laptop. This also works if your Sony VAIO came with Windows 8 With the computer turned completely off, press and hold the Assist button until the black VAIO screen appears NOTE: The location of the Assist button will be different depending on the computer model. Refer to the operating instructions supplied with the computer for the exact location of the Assist button on your model At the VAIOCare | Rescue Mode screen, press the Down Arrow key until the Start BIOS setup [F2] option is highlighted, and then press the Enter key In the [BIOS Name] Setup Utility screen, press the right-arrow key until the Advanced tab is selected On the Advanced tab, press the down-arrow key until Intel(R) Virtualization Technology is selected and then press the Enter key Use the arrow keys to select Enabled, and then press the Enter key Press the right-arrow key until the Exit tab is selected Press the down-arrow key until Exit Setup is selected and then press the Enter key In the Save screen, verify Yes is selected and then press the Enter key
  7. Condolences, did I missed something ?
  8. @sfbpCondolences and best wishes from myself and all at SIF. Take care.
  9. Wow Stephen I haven't noticed yet that you added your own picture as your avatar !
  10. Hello I have a BIOS version R1120J7. My PC is a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ240E. creators Phoenix Trusted core of the Bios, I wanted to know how I can activate Virtualization.
  11. Anyone in the UK who would be interested in one of these, let me know immediately. It forms part of my father's estate and is in very good condition. I personally have one of these and it's a terrific combo unit. At this point I need to check if it's got speakers but I think it does. I will also make sure the CD and MD both play (and I'm pretty sure the MD will record). I'll check everything else about it whilst here (for the funeral) such as the remote. I'm guessing it might need a clock battery. It's way too much hassle to send abroad. Best of all would be someone willing to pick it up from my sister's in Surrey. I'm thinking 80 quid. Stephen (temporarily in England)

  13. Hello everybody, My recently bought second hand Sony mz-nh 700 all of sudden stopped reproducing discs,on the screen apeears either -no disc- or -hold- communicate. I have tried to clean laser and connect it to Sonicstage but no results...Does anybody have any idea what could go wrong? Any help greatly appreciated..
  14. the 980 was 100 quid years ago, the other jb's were 35 to 60 quid all bar one spares or repair, well it was but in the end nowt wrong with it, a 940 owes me 100 quid as thats the one that was first and i learned what not to do with that, and the other shall i say more basic models were 15 to 35 quid again spares or repair including a 520 and s50 that i broke for spares as both were knackered on the outside. and around 250 quid for the 930 that i bought new 20 odd years ago which was sold to buy the 980 in around 2009.
  15. nice but another mortgage required or for the seriously rich https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/144229389976?hash=item2194bdd698:g:LuUAAOSwnFBhWI6f
  16. @BearBoy That's true, so sad that they stop selling this product. The price of Chromecast Audio is increasing now. I am not sure if it is from what people found we can use it to create a cheap streamer or not. Here is the graph of Chromecast Audio price. It is from this video
  17. I tried this a few years back. Worked really well. Unfortunately I've only got the one Chromecast Audio and it lives elsewhere in the house. It's a real shame they discontinued them.
  18. I bought a Sony MZ-N10 with an old battery and just the docking station without any cable. I know that the quality of the data cable and the 6V power adapter cable is very bad and almost falls apart. Mainly because the data cable isn’t available anymore I wanted to modify the docking station. Changing the proprietary Sony port to a common USB-C port would be a nice solution. Bit I also wanted to get rid of the 6V port. too. I thought that it must be possible to step up the 5V from the USB-C input to 6V via a step up converter. This would be quite convenient. So I ordered the needed parts. Battery: https://www.ebay.de/itm/224470036406?var=523253029851 USB-C breakout port: https://www.ebay.de/itm/353151668332 Step up converter: https://www.reichelt.de/entwicklerboards-spannungsregler-dc-dc-wandler-debo-dcdc-down-4-p291460.html?CCOUNTRY=445&LANGUAGE=de&trstct=pos_0&nbc=1&&r=1 The installation of the battery was quite easy. I ordered a 402050 battery. I guess its 420 mAh is the maximum capacity that will fit inside the MZ-N10. To install you just have to unscrew the jog dial and the back plate. Just solder the wires to the two pins next to the battery port. This video shows the procedure, but take a larger battery. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qkwfSVickU To install the new parts into the docking station you have to unscrew the two screws on the back plate. Take a plastic opening tool to release it. Now desolder all 6 wires from the port and solder new wires as shown in the picture. Set the step up converter to 6,4 Volt. You have to cut some plastic parts to make the new parts fit. I also had to extend the space inside the docking station to make the step up converter fit. I used hot glue and plastic parts to cover the gap. This mod makes the MZ-N10 easier to use than ever before. Especially if you use the great website „Web MiniDisc“ by Stefano Brilli. Now I can sync my favorite songs with my MacBook Air without any problems. Syncing and charging via one USB-C cable. Uploading my photos failed consequently. The 4 wires of the Sony port are standard USB wires. Ground and Voltage wires also have to be connected to the input ports of the step up converter. The two wires from the output of the step up converter have to be connected with the 6V connection from the Sony connector. Pictures are available on reddit.
  19. I would like to share an idea to create a cheap music streamer with an existing MD deck that we have. Main idea Use a Google Chromecast Audio device to get digital input to an MD deck. Use DAC in an MD deck to get analog output. On an MD deck, select digital input. Press record on it and start playing a source. No need to insert a disc. A display will show "XX -DA", indicating that the unit's DAC is in use. Here is an easy to understand of diagram of how it work. For me details, please visit https://mdburner.com/net-md/a-cheap-music-streamer-with-an-md-deck Thanks
  20. Not sure it is a solution that you want but I found a cheap USB to Toslink/Coaxial converter "Douk Audio Mini XMOS USB to SPDIF Coaxial Optical Converter". It uses XMOS XU208 chip and costs around 40 USD in AliExpress. I never use it but have thought to buy it. It looks interesting to me.
  21. Very nice post. I will get my friends who has all Sony Net MD decks take photos of them and put them here. He has MDS-NT1, MDS-JE780, MDS-JB980, MDS-S500. BTW, here is front has back for photos that I have https://mdburner.com/net-md/sony-net-md-decks.
  22. Hi @sfbp @kgallen I have a good news today. My friend who is good at MD hardware has fixed my NT1 already. I can find a second broken NT1 as a replacement part. The issue is from a board on MD drive, not a main board. All functions work properly now. We only need to do more recording and playing to make sure it is stable and reliable.

  24. The silver EH50 arrived today. For some reason, the sled with the laser on it was all the way out at the edge of the player as opposed to being in the usual resting place in the centre. Quick test and everything is working as expected, but I do wonder if it maybe needs a tiny bit of lubrication on there somewhere as I'm not 100% convinced about the noise it makes when moving from the beginning to the end of the disc for example compared to my other players.. Other than that, seems to be almost as new, boxed with all the accessories etc..
