  1. Yes, before we became Sony Insider forums this forum was hosted at forums.minidisc.org (it was then merged with another forum we managed called AtracLife - for non MD devices)... The admin of the top level minidisc.org equipment browser was / is Eric Woudenberg and the forums were always totally separate. We never had access to be able to update that and if we wanted something adding always had to request him to do it.. I'm not sure if Chris is still in contact with him.. For the sake of completeness over there, there are indeed a few things missing - ones that immediately spring to mind are the E630, E730, DS-HMD1 and various later Victor portables.. I'm sure there are others too..
  2. * Pictorial restored I believe this series was indeed from 1999 and confirm was the 1st of 4 of the J'z series from Axia. It was also sold in 5 and 10 pack storage boxes, but the discs were still individually wrapped, the same as shown here. Only available in 74 minute variants.
  3. I'm not entirely sure - ポシェ on the wrapper is pronounced as 'posh' and it is in effect a loan word, but I'm not sure if it's used in the same way as in English - to mean high class, luxurious - it could be an allusion to the gold and silver disc colours... In theory I suppose it could also be from the French 'poche' as in small ladies bag..
  4. * Pictorial work in progress from Ishii restored. I will update this one in due course with pictures of the 74 minute discs and the 80 minute 5 pack
  5. I think again something got lost along the way over the years during the various upgrades. There is an option in the back end admin panel to install the new "standard emoji's" but to do that it asks me to upgrade the database to unicode or something. I am wary of doing that as I don't have the ability to make a backup first and don't want to crash the whole site.. That would result in a lot of angry face emoji's.. Maybe @Christopher has some ideas..
  6. Thanks - it wasn't taken as a knock at all :-) (if only the emoji's were working I could have added a smiley to my original post!).. I was puzzled by the mobile thing too and have to confess I'm a bit behind the times.. I did manage to use the "Request Desktop Site" option in Chrome on my android phone, but that resulted in a lot of zooming in and out.. I'll give BearBoy's tip a try too as a workaround - sounds good
  7. Thanks, it's something I have wanted to do for years. I know how much time and effort was put in to create them and to be honest I thought they had been lost for ever.. I am relying on the Wayback Machine for now as I have no idea if the original files still exist on the server somewhere and even if they do I don't have access. Once I have recovered everything I can, I'll add some new ones of my own (both disc pictorials and MD units).. Once I have done that I would like to figure out how to get the emoji's working again - it's a small thing I know, but I miss that too... :-)
  8. I had the same problem - exactly - there seems to be some kind of overlay sometimes that blocks half of the screen.. I'm not sure why this is - maybe there is a special skin or something we need to deploy for the mobile.. I have never been too good at figuring that part of the board out.. Sorry also for spamming everyone with the pictorial updates.
  9. * Restoring Ishii's pictorial to it's original glory :-)

    Sony MZ-N1

    Hi Carl, Welcome.. I presume you have charged the unit? It could well be that after all these years the removable battery is dead. Does it work if you put an AA battery in the external battery holder?
