  1. Having recently dipped my toes back into Minidisc, I was looking for a way to organize and store my discs. There are not a lot of options out there obviously, and I didn't really fancy any of the etsy 3d printed racks. Instead I started scouring through Amazon for something suitable and found a nice little wood storage box. It will hold about 23 minidiscs in their sleeves and they are almost a perfect fit side to side. The lid will not close with the discs in the box, unless you under-stock the box and allow the discs to lean over. If you put in the discs without the sleeves then the lid will close without leaning them over. I just figured I would share in case others find it useful: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B6H58VSP?psc=1&smid=A1BMZZZS7AKSSF&ref_=chk_typ_imgToDp
  2. Thanks for that! I’ll have to give that a try for sure.
  3. Yep - Synchro Recording was enabled. That was still useful as it started and stopped the recording automatically. I wonder if there just wasn't enough dead air between the tracks, although there certainly seemed to be between at least a few of them. Maybe other albums will be more co-operative. For reference, the one I recorded was the Daft Punk soundtrack to TRON: Legacy.
  4. Thanks again for the help on this. The unit arrived today in perfect condition and I got to work testing an album transfer to MD... I was able to record over the SPDIF connection from iTunes on Windows 11. Thanks for the tips on isolating the playback to the optical out. I directed everything else to my usual speaker output. It worked like a charm. The only unfortunate thing was I had to manually enter all the track marks as it recorded my entire test album on a single track. Not a big deal, but I would like to figure out a way around that. Very happy to have my hands on a minidisc player again!
  5. Thanks a lot for the info guys. This is very helpful. I’ll be sure to report back once I’ve had a chance to try it out. Now I just need to wait for USPS 🙂
  6. Hello! I recently picked up a Sony MZ-R90 MD player/recorder from eBay, mostly as a nostalgia kick. I had one back when they were the new hotness and I just loved the thing. I was always sad that Minidisc faded away, but I'm happy to have found a good condition unit to get me back into it 🙂 I don't actually have it in-hand yet but should have it later this week. I've been wondering about somehow recording to the MZ-R90 and could use some input. My current thought is to attempt to connect from SPDIF out on my Win 11 PC to the optical in on the MZ-R90. If I then play MP3s on the PC I should be able to record them to minidisc, right? I know it will be in real time but I'm ok with that for now at least. It might even be another nice trip down memory lane, lol. I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions on how best to get up and running. I have access to Mac & PC in case that helps. Thanks!
