  1. Thanks to you both. They are the plasticity ones I am afraid...I actually don't mind that I just need a headphone connection which works..eventually I will try to open and fix the others. The three Sony ones I have all the same issues. It's a back pocket whilst I work issue I think putting strain on the earphone connection. Will buy them if I get them cheap what have I got to loose? Plus I know at least one doesn't have the remote type headphone connection which for me is a bonus As for poorer sound quality..no biggy really I pack a load of podcasts onto one disc on mdlp and my volume is low as I am working..so might just be worth like £10..actually be rude not to rescue them...thanks.
  2. Hi I have never owned a sharp mini disc recorder, always been Sony I have used but as all old tech they go after a while. I can get my hands on a sharp mdlp player recorder at a good price. Mt 280e and possibly another mt sharp model. Just wanted to know if they are any good? All my Sony ones eventually break down in the headphone socket I think because I don't use the inline remote just put my headphones in. Both these sharp units don't have the inline remote style headphone connection so might be a better unit for me? Any thoughts on sharp players would be helpful.
  3. Hi Stephen had a chance to try this and it has worked. Thanks to you and the other posters.
  4. Hi there. I dont keep anything in the library I simply was using mini disc of late as a daily podcast machine and after I transfer the said podcasts I delete from sonicstage and my pc. Thanks for reply hope you or another member has an idea of what it may be...I did do the optimize as suggested to but I fear that's more a thing for a massive library of music?
  5. Thanks will give it a go tonight after work.
  6. Ok so as the title, transfers not allowed popping up on sonicstage when doing my usual mp3 podcasts.doing nothing different what should I do to correct this error? Was thinking of uninstalling then reinstall sonicstage? Any ideas would be appreciated.
  7. Good points. Yea my remote died years ago in fact been through a couple. I must just be hard on things. Thanks for input.
  8. Thanks for reply yes,was thinking those things broken solder would be easy enough if the amp is gone then that's that unless I eBay another broken one and use the parts. Looked and this model can be bought cheap enough working never mind a faulty one for parts plus I have the next model up plus a hi md still working this was like my for work one. It's now being used as the battery charger my hi md used as the recorder and the other one of these as the player. Not sure it's worth taking apart will mull it over.
  9. Hi any help before i take this apart please, never tried to repair one before. the said model mini disc recorder has developed a fault with the headphone socket where it went a bit weird a couple of days ago, eventually just my left side of the headphones now work. the headphones work perfectly with my other audio devices so it isnt a problem with them. the unit records it plays it works via usb with sonic stage its just giving me left side mono sound, same thing happens when connected to my amp and speakers. the only other signs of wear and tear is a little gap in the disc loading door when closed again from a well used machine of this age this is expected, and surely would have no bearing on this mono audio thing? any help would be appreciated.......oh ive been away from the forum for a while without a windows based pc i wasnt using MD but bought a windows based laptop so back with MD for another round and enjoying using them again.....cheers.... james.
  10. Hi. Its not the MP3 files or my headphones its the acer android phone or in fact any phone to me never sound as good as mini disc recorded MP3. I also much prefer to download several podcast onto mini disc at a time instead of one at a time on my phone plus as I am sure your well aware press stop on a mini disc and provided you don't eject it you just start from where you left of. This is one of many great things I find appealing about mini disc. Anyhow will be going back to windows soon hopefully.
  11. I have a 600 used to use it for all my recordings with either standard 80 min or the hi md discs. I used it primarily in net md mode then used on of my better looking better sounding net md units for playback. Don't believe it's been mentioned but these wee gems don't require battery or power adapter for recording the usb drive on your computer powers them, that's the main reason I used it for my recordings only because the net md units require power when recording digitally via sonicstage on pc/laptop. Ps. I have dropped my countless times and it's survived its a workhorse of a unit albeit not as pretty as others.
  12. Thanks for reply sounds good. But not really what I ment. I initially put this in the software thread and it was moved. What I really need is to get sonicstage onto an Android tablet then usb my mini disc recorder to the tablet and download and manage mp3 podcasts as before from sonicstage to mini disc and listen as before was still possible on a Windows laptop. However in doing my own research it seems that androids don't take sonocstage software and even if they did the mini type usb connection isn't compatible with standard usb used,on netmd. Gonna just get a Windows laptop again because listening to bbc radio podcast via my android phone is crap, much prefer mini disc for all the obvious reasons that we all love. Thanks anyway for your informative reply.
  13. Hi all been offline for a while but now back however on the android operating system. I am really missing downloading podcasts and listening via minidisc out walking gardening or at work ect. I can't see a version of sonic stage anywhere which is downloadable to an android device. Am I missing something on this site or was it only ever redone as far windows 7? Is it even possible to get it onto android tablet or am I living in cloud cuckoo land and need to get windows again?
  14. don't collect discs, just buy as many as I can a couple of times a year bought these 25 old stock brand new sealed maxell discs for £7.50 plus delivery of an ebay auction. well made ones with metal shutter and good thick heavy plastic not the flimsier maxell discs.
  15. as the title states remote now got.
