  1. YeaI was looking around the documention inside sonicstage and I couldnt find anything inside there about converting to atrac1. I wonder why sony left out sp. The chrome test was to see if it had native support of the format like it has for some videos formats and pdfs. Ive been trying out how to get atrac working in foobar. I got it working but its not very elegant. It starts playing as soon as I drop the file in and I cant get it to go into the playlist window. It also pops up an ugly window. lol Foobar2000 works with foo_input.exe and FFmpeg setup: formatname: myatrac3plus decode command: C:\MyPrograms\FFmpeg\bin\ffplay -nodisp -autoexit %s file type mask: *.oma decoder output format: wav Found a better way to get atrac3plus working in foobar2000. Just needs this plugin: vgmstream and it doesnt need further setting up
  2. Just testing out various programs in Windows 10 and I have found these results from trying to playback Atrac3plus. The .oma files were encoded in 352kbps protected and not protected. Windows Media Player Classic: Protected YES Unprotected YES Vegas Pro 15: Protected YES Unprotected YES Audacity with FFmpeg installed: Protected YES Unprotected YES Foobar2000: Protected NO Unprotected NO (heard it works with a plugin, havent tried) VLC (heard it works like mpc but havent tried.) Winamp 5: Protected NO Unprotected NO Chrome: doesnt try to open it Steam: Doesnt pick up the file I'll add more programs to this as I do more testing. Might do Atrac1 292kbps if someone can show me how to record to that in sonicstage4.3. Probably nobody bothers with Atrac3 anymore do they?
  3. Hi. I hope Im not too late but theres 2 ways you can do this. Open sonicstage then click on "music source" and then "import folder". Take note of the folders which have a green tick next to them and thats where the music files are stored so you just have to copyall the contents in those folders over to the external hard drive. Music files can usually be found in c:\documents and settings\rachel\my documents\my music in XP and c:\Users\rachel\Music in Windows10.
  4. All of the links for Windows Installer 2.0, DirectX 9.0c, Windows Media Format 9, Windows Media Format 9.5, and Data Access Components 2.5 are not working, just to let you know.
  5. haha nice man. I fixed it for myself doing that tonight too. I was so happy. Made me appreciate the sound even more when i got it working.
  6. I've never liked memorex blanks. Their cds and dvd blanks turned yellow within a very short period of time and then my data disappeared. For other name brand minidiscs, I've used plenty, mainly TDK and Sony and I've never had a problem with them.
  7. When you have the lid open what position is the lens tray at? If its anywhere but near the spindle, try sliding the lens tray over and see if that helps. My NH1 kept grinding on any disc I inserted until I tried that and it fixed it for me.
  8. Took my NH1 out of storage and I was devastated to find the usb to md cable had disintegrated. I plugged it into the pc anyway to try and charge the walkman which I then remembered would not work. It put the NH1 into pc mode and it kept on trying to read the disc. I then forcefully unplugged it while the disc was spinning and used the docking station to try and charge it. Unfortunately the AC charging cable was falling to bits too (lol) and the md walkman reported a long 'busy please wait a moment' message. Me being impatient, popped the disc out cause i was dying to listen to something on it having had it in storage for 5 years, possibly more. Subsequent attempts to load the disc just made the nh1 make grinding noises. I then tried to trouble shoot the error by recording to a blank disc. It recorded about 2minutes then reported a disc read error. I assume the 2min mark was the limit of the memory buffer. I examined the disc tray as i inserted and removed the disc to check that the cover was opening properly and it looked like it was. I then used a pen to shove the disc head to the side furthest from the motor, let it try loading the disc again then I opened it to see if the position of the lens had move. It hadn't. So next I shoved the lens head to the side closest to the motor, closed the lid and it read the disc ok!!! I'm so happy I didn't break it so if your walkman is having problems reading discs the lens might not be in the right starting position for it to work. Not sure why it doesnt reset its position when a disc is inserted. The sound on the NH1 is sooo good. Right now I am listening to a disc I recorded in 2001 and the sound completely destroys the dac on my $1k phone.
  9. I've successfully removed deep scratches from my remote screen by continually rubbing the screen with my fingernail whenever I'm out and about with my MD Walkman. My fingernail is pretty soft so it can't scratch the flat unscratched parts but it does rub the 'ridges' away causing the scratches to go away.
