Dear Sony, I own a lot of Sony products and started buying them over 35 years ago. Every single Sony MZ-RH1 Mindisc OLED is failing across the world. This is a problem as these devices were used a lot in the recording field and a lot of valuable data still exists on MD. This machine allowed users to transfer old HI-MD recordings to a computer. Most MD units only allowed you to record, not transfer to PC.
The same issue happened with Hi-8 video tapes. Trying to convert them to digital on a computer and the camera no longer works. Sony could make a combined Hi-8 / MD machine just for data transfer.
Please manufacture the Sony MZ-RH1 OLEDS once again, so these units can be repaired by all your loyal customers. Thank you
