  1. @Tekageek Hi! That is a great story - may you have many years of great use form this MiniDisc deck!
  2. Belated Happy New Year to you all Good to see my thread still active! I'm tracking a JB940 on eBay right now. It's a "UK Tuned edition" - what is that all about?
  3. As topic thanks, he has a bunch of stuff for sale.
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlRsN04-ZFw i found a few, here is one. I did not remove as many ribbon cables as this guy, just enough to move the drive assembly to get access to the belt.
  5. So, I have a MDS-JE770 deck. It was the one I referenced in an another post where I described it having a dodgy drive belt and eject problem. I replaced the belt from one from eBay and all was well. Recently though, after it had been out of use for a month but with a disc in, I noticed that it would not eject. It just sort of seemed stuck, I did not seem to hear any rubbing/spinning sound at all. On opening it, I gave the white plastic piece pictured in image a nudge and that made the disc eject. I just wondered if you guys had seen this before. Is it a symptom of another issue or was it simply because we should not really leave discs in a deck long term? Thanks
  6. Is that the Mona Lisa pixelart one in your video? It looks very cool! It's a style that is actually quite "in" these days (8-bit retro). Sorry I have no Bit Club for sale
  7. 4 discs in total in blue, pink, and green - £10 including 1st class postage.Will be sent quickly and well-packaged (check my feedback on this forum
  8. Nice! Back when I got my first sportscar, a 1997 BMW 323 couple, I removed the headunit and fitted a Kenwood KMD-671R myself, I really miss those days
  9. It's too new to have a cassette and too old to have aux-in or USB. It's like the "app gap" generation in human beings! Otherwise the tape adapter thingy would be a really good solution. I was looking at a more beefy portable speaker inside the car but to be honest I think within a few years I'll probably change the car. The poor thing is starting to suffer some age related issues.
  10. Wow Chris, I could not find a used MD-02 on eBay even in "sold items" - how did you find such a rare and beautiful creature? http://www.avc.hr/en/sales_programme/products/md_02/
  11. I got the FM transmitter, got all excited to try it and... ...nothing. I could not get it to catch the station I set on the unit. I tried several FM frequencies, I tried putting the unit near the boot (my car has the FM aerial built into the rear window I think). I tried it with a FM radio to confirm it works at all and it does work... but the sound quality is really not acceptable. I returned it for a refund. I thank you for your suggestion though I have toyed with the idea of a aux-in mod but in my Car 2007 Honda Civic, it entails removing half the dashboard. There are some car audio shops that will do it but I'll be probably looking at £150. Only from model year 2009 did Honda introduce an aux in to this model - argh!!
  12. Try searching this forum for "belt fix" or similar, I found loads of topics on the subject and some of those mention the JB-940. I fixed a similar problem on my JE-770 using a belt from eBay, search "minidisc drive belt". This topic mentioned some genuine belts:
  13. Thanks man, I have ordered one based on reviews and your recommendation The good thing about it is that I can then control volume from my steering wheel. Too bad I can't skip tracks from the wheel like I can do with my mp3 CD. Truth be told, I've tried one of these about 10 years back and was not impressed. Hopefully they have improved in the intervening years. I'll let you know when it arrives on Friday! If performance is not good I can return it. Onereview mentions the fake FCC label on the back so maybe they have boosted the power above the FCC guidelines? Philippe - my car is 10 years old and has done 176,000 miles - it's a reliable workhorse and I'm keeping her
  14. That was a lovely read Matt, it's also a testament to "less is more". I really understand what you meant by indulging in the "mixtape" thing - this is exactly why I return to the format and continue to use it. You just don't get the same satisfaction from pointing and clicking to create a digital playlist on a screen. These days I enjoy compiling my own albums from recording from YouTube. It's real-time recording but I avoid a lot of faff otherwise in messing with YouTube downloaders and the like. The sound quality is also acceptable. I was curious to know how you are listening to MD in your car? My car is a 2007 Honda Civic and has a mp3 CD only. My current solution is this: https://photos.app.goo.gl/jKhOaqzHblekth3I3 which sadly not stereo or that punchy but does a fair job. Thanks again!
  15. That is amazing fyrebug, do keep us updated. I would be interested in buying coupla small 10-disc towers so consider making a post in the "Trading" forum when the time is right.
