  1. When I started Zadig it didn't automatically detect the NETMD760 driven units (it did detect a Sharp recorder though, presumably because it uses a different driver) so I had to go to Options and then List All Devices and select the correct one. It then says "Driver NETMD760 (v1.4.0.5270) -> WinUSB (v6.1.7600.16385)" and you hit the Replace Driver button, wait 30 seconds or so and it should tell you it's been successful. Web MiniDisc should then detect your recorder while any other models should hopefully still work with SonicStage.
  2. I am running 64-bit and it was NETMD760 that was replaced for both the NH600 and the N505 but Zadig only associates the WinUSB driver with whichever MD unit you select from the devices list rather than uninstalling NETMD760 leaving all others still working with SonicStage.
  3. The issue with the NH600 now seems to be resolved. After restarting the pc it is now working perfectly which is great. sfbp, the old driver/SonicStage thing doesn't seem to be a problem as long as you are using a different unit for Web MiniDisc than you do for SonicStage. You can use Zadig (https://zadig.akeo.ie/) to switch the driver for just the unit you want to use with Web MD to the WinUSB driver. This doesn't affect the driver for whatever recorder you use for SonicStage. I've just done a test and SonicStage will quite happily transfer music to my MDS-NT1 at the same time as Web MD is recording to the NH600.
  4. Thanks Stephen but I've tried that. I get the same error on Hi-MD and MD modes but I see other people have been able to use some Hi-MD units in MD mode successfully so I'm not quite sure what's going on here. I've not seen that exact error message reported by anyone else either. It's a mystery.
  5. This is a fantastic app Stefano. Many thanks for all your hard work. I have just been trying to use it with a couple of Sony MZ-NH600 units and although I've had great success with an MZ-N505, I am getting an error with these. Has anyone got any idea what "The configuration value provided is not supported by the device" means and how I can sort it out?
  6. Hi Russ, Welcome to the forum. The older adapter should be absolutely fine to power the MZ-RH10 for playing, recording or charging so a replacement isn't necessary. I use the older power supplies on newer units on a regular basis without any issue. I also have an RH10 which also has the screen issue which is a shame, but otherwise it is an absolutely fantastic unit. Jimma.
  7. I am having a problem with SonicStage on Windows 10 that hopefully somebody here may be able to help me with. The issue is that when I open SonicStage I get an error window that says "SonicStage (00000908-6736) The selected music file cannot be played back because the system information has been changed. Click OK to automatically close SonicStage and open the SonicStage System Information Restore Tool. (Error Code 00004e2e)" It then closes, restores successfully and I can then open SonicStage which works fine. The trouble is that the next time I open the program this will happen again so it's pretty annoying. The only other thing I've noticed on this new install is that when I'm transferring tracks to MD the track names appear in the transfer window as question marks and only revert to the correct characters once all tracks have finished being transferred, although this is probably unrelated to the other issue. Any assistance with the restore problem would be greatly appreciated. Jimma.
  8. Sitting at my desk eating lunch and reading this made me smile.
  9. The disc you are playing is not MDLP is it?
  10. After seeing your labeled up disc I thought I'd dig this out from my collection. It's on N5MD which was originally started as a MiniDisc only label. I can only assume Tim Koch is an MD fan, which is great. I like the look of your disc and will be interested in a copy once it is released. Please let us know the details.
  11. Apart from the MDW80T, the latest and current disc.
  12. You may know this already but unfortunately SonicStage doesn't recognise FLAC files. You will have to use something like FLAC Frontend to change them back to WAVs before importing them into SonicStage for transfer to your NH1 once you get your USB cable. The MZ-NH1 is a fantastic bit of kit and I'm sure you'll be very happy with it. I love mine:)
  13. http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/news/14753045.Cameron_has___1m_memoirs_backed_up____on_MiniDisc/ The first time I've heard of someone using MD due to it being "unhackable".
  14. It looks like you're going to have to keep it in one piece and just welcome a new member to your MD family:)
  15. Google has shut down Picasa so all the photo albums that were there have been transferred to Google Photos but unfortunately that means the pictures are inaccessible to anyone but the owner unless they set up new public albums, which is very annoying. The same thing has happened to the MD Channel galleries.
  16. Hi mimerskol. I really hope you are able to get your MZ-RH10 up and running, but if this proves impossible I would be very interested in buying it from you if the display works as my RH10 has the common oled display fail issue. If you have no luck repairing it and are interested in selling, please let me know:)
  17. Those sites don't include every disc ever made, but I've not seen any more comprehensive sets of pictures.
  18. From past experience, game consoles and Blu-Ray or DVD players don't transfer the track marks for some reason. I am at a loss as to why they would not transfer from the Arcam CD player though. I have never had any issues transfering track marks via optical to any MD deck or portable from any dedicated CD player with any CD. The only difference is that I don't use Syncro Rec. I just rec/pause the recorder, play/pause the player and then start them at the same time. That might be worth a try but I can't really see why it would make any difference.
  19. The problem I have is that if you import an album such as, for the sake of argument "Now That's What I Call Music! 93" in MP3 format and each track has the album title and artist metadata then SonicStage splits it up into 44 seperate albums called Now 93, one by each of the 44 artists. Unless I'm missing something then the only way to transfer the album onto MiniDiscs with the tracks ordered correctly is to read through the tracklisting and painstakingly select each track individually before transfer. To change the album to a the same artist or no artist at all would in this example require changing the artist on all 44 "albums" individually. I have played around with this a lot and have found no way around it apart from erasing the artist data from the MP3s before importing, which is also a pain. Maybe I'm just being clueless Stephen.
  20. Nemo, I would really like a copy of your app if you'd be willing to let me have it. It drives me mad when you import a compilation album into SonicStage and it splits the album up according to the artist metadata.
  21. Hi Steve. A NiMH battery should charge just fine using the charging stand and it will likely give better performance and none of the memory effects of the original NiCd.
  22. I got them from a Japanese seller on eBay. http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=u-japan&_armrs=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xminidisc.TRS0&_nkw=minidisc&_sacat=0 This new model was released in November as far as I can tell. The five packs even come in an old school cardboard box with five individually wrapped discs inside which is a nice touch. Sony still manufacture the Neige discs as well unbelievably. I picked up a few of those in their new 2015 individual packaging a couple of months ago.
  23. I've just received some of the brand new Sony blank MiniDiscs through the post and the packaging bears a striking resemblence to the very first blanks from back in 1992. This makes me wonder if they are finishing in the same fashion as they started and that this is the last new blank we will see from Sony. I certainly hope not but I have included a few photos of the 1992 and 2015 discs together for comparison. http://www.sony.jp/rec-media/products/MDW80T/
