  1. Thanks all of my MD friends!!!!!!!!! And thanks Kris...but when I put in compatibility mode a TON of features are disabled. I get nothing but errors. I just now performed a factory reset of WIN-10 Pro. (I kept all my files though, I dont think erasing the files themselves would affect SS at all. Just programming and software changes from the wipe). So......Right now I am going to install SS 4.3 fresh and give this a shot. I will let my MD buddies know how I make out. -Sean
  2. I am not very good at reading schematics but I'm going to give this a stab. I'm sure most of you know way way more than I do. This is just a hobby of mine and I have NO training on circuits and wiring. You have probably already addressed what I'm thinking here...but I'm curious. Could he try to ground the circuit path that the switch is connected in? If you look at the PCB diagram on page 29 it looks like hold is engaged when the circuit is actually closed. Shorting a lead from the hold switch should close, ground, or "short circuit" the entire path and should in theory disengage t
  3. GRRRRRRRRRRRR....NO HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tried compatibility settings for vista, 7, 8, and XP was just a disaster. None of the others seemed to perform any differently than launching with Windows 10
  4. Ok.....this is something new. Yippee!!!! I am baffled. I have always been somewhat of an expert on MD and MD related topics, but this one has me stumped. I hope you are reading this Stephen because I could really use another brain right now. Running windows 10 Pro, SS 4.3 I kept getting the infamous "program has stopped working click to restart." After uninstalling and re-installing it a billion times I finally got the software to read the NET-MD and not crash right away. It now crashes every time I perform an action. I finally does the MD's just fine, it will let me edit, renam
  5. I tried the TOC cloning from an Analog disc to a Digital TOC of the same recording. The Digital copy had DRM encoding, and the Analog copy did not. When I cloned the Analog TOC to the disc with the Digital TOC and material, the DRM remained along with the Digital content. So no....I cant trick the SCMS or DRM with the TOC clone name stamp feature. Rats!!! I thought I was on to something! >:-<
  6. There are ALOT of features ONLY available on the remote on my MT770. All of the edits, bass, rec vol, etc.. options are ONLY accessible through the remote. But thank GOD!!!! The remote is beautiful with a crystal clear turquoise backlit display. It is quite a pleasure to use! :-) I just wish I could control everything from the unit when I'm making recordings from my home HI-FI and dont need to monitor the signal (still outputting the original signal anywayz). The pesky unneeded remote for that needs to dangle from it while not being connected to a damn thing.
  7. I have a really interesting question. I haven't tried this yet but the possibility is certainly viable. To beat the DRM/SCMS on Sonys, you would unplug the device before the TOC was written, and apply a "ghost" TOC upon re-power, which in turn erased the DRM/SCMS but replacing the TOC. My theory....These Sharp recorders have a utility called "name stamp" that EXACLTY clones the TOC from one disc to another. So...what if you made a digital recording off a CD, rendering the MD non reproducible to copy digital to another MD or CD burner, then make an exact recording via analog input wh
  8. KJ, I started this thread because I came across my very first Sharp at the local Farmer's Market here in Delaware. It is an MD-MT770 and I paid a whopping $60 for it. After some research I realized that this was a MORE than a fair price. This unit is touted to be one of the best portables made, and I couldn't be happier with it. I dont use NET-MD too much for standard SP LP2 LP4 transfers, I prefer recording in real time so I get the true SP encoding. If you use sonic stage to transfer in SP, it is identical to LP2. A very knowledgeable member Steven informed us of this. The only time I u
  9. Hello!!!!!!!!!! I know this is all about minidisc on SONY INSIDER but I want to break off a little to discuss Sharp portables. If anyone wishes to contribute to this it would be freaking awesome!!!!!!!!!!! Kind of in a rush right now while I am starting this thread, so I will post my info, reviews, and my opinions of them. "Sharp only" features and Sharp vs. Sony is a perfect example of my goal/approach for this topic. Participation would be really cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Catch y'all later fellow MD-Junkies!!!!!!!!
  10. I have a question for the experts.This was posted some time ago in a different forum but I didn't get any replies. This has been driving me crazy ever since mp3 cd's were conceptualized and adopted. Now most Compact DIsc players/DVD players have this capability. But there has always been a flaw and hindrance as far as the MiniDisc's compatibly with said MP3 CDs. Someone PLEASE give me your thoughts or ideas. Or perhaps an answer (Steven...cough cough cough). Read below to understand exactly what my problem is: I prefer to record optically from a CD to the MD in HI-SP mode or
  11. Ill start with a mod that I just did to my hopeless MZ-R55.This was my first MD recorder EVER!!! I have had this thing in my "pile-o-electronics" and decided to play with it this morning. It is in pitiful shape....half the screen is cracked and the body looks like it went trough a tornado. I never expected this to work. I got out my 3V MD wall charger (the standard one) and plugged it in. It works PERFECTLY!!! lol!! I miss his little "buddy" of mine...lol!!! I had one problem however, I lost my MZ-RH10 but have 3 standard gumstick batteries that went along with it. Of course they are so d
  12. I thought this would be a really cool thread. I want everyone to post photos or explanations of any DIY mods you have done to your equipment. This includes any changes that you made to render a device different from factory stock. Example adding things to the circuits, modifying the body, battery mods...etc...
  13. Yes....I have one of those and it works fine for me. But there is a trick to getting it to work on Windows 8 or later. Refer to my post with the instructions to install the NetMD drivers for windows 8. Its relatively easy and step by step anyone can follow it and get their NetMD working with Win8 or WIn10. The trick is to disable driver signature enforcement on Windows 10 and to manually install the driver for the NetMD device which will be listed as an error in device manager.

  14. No Kalkie I wasn't. It had long since finished searching months and months ago at the time of install. This problem was static for months. I just now got it likely by tricking SS into thinking it had searched all and found nothing. A week ago,the week before that, and the month before that, I could not drag and drop. I'm sure the folder search was completed by then...lol!!! The reason I use the D & D is because I hate ticking all those check boxes and navigating my whole file system to locate a folder with the songs that I want in it. Also if you want to import a specific folder, you
  15. Thanks so much for all the "discoveries" you guys stumbled across while investigating this problem. I'm kinda glad it happened now that I fixed it. That prob revealed things that I was unaware of, and answered so many questions regarding file problems and SS errors. This issue seems to have helped all of us long-term. When Steven was reffering to the actual file changing, I believe he was talking about the oma files themselves in the SS packages directory. Meaning those files that SS ripped from CD, or were converted using SS after a folder import. Any change in the actual SS userinterface wou
