  1. Just to follow up, there actually is one significant performance difference between SB1 and 2. With SB1, there's TOC edit before and after every single friggin song, which takes FOREVER. SB2 doesn't do this. Instead, it just continues flashing "Data Save" while the MD unit is waiting for the computer to encode the audio. IMO, this is HUGE, because it dramatically increases simple burner speeds to the point where the MD unit isn't the bottleneck anymore, it's now your computer's processing speed. That was one SB thing that pissed me off since day 1 of NetMD and I'm thrilled to see if fixed. Rock on! btw, I don't know if this matters, but this was tested on my MZ-N10 and I can't say if the same behavior is demonstrated on other models.
  2. I'm updated to 2.2 and planning to update to 2.3 for better mp3 support. I've read that current MD isn't gonna be able to support mp3 through firmware because the decoder chip is atrac only. Meh, maybe the next wave of units will feature chips that can decode mp3, or possibly other formats like ogg vorbis. That would ROCK, but I don't see it happening. Bummer deal. Curiosity is forcing me to upgrade, heh heh. We'll see how it turns out. Yeah dude, forum looks great, the quick reply feature is a major upgrade. Sa-wheat!
  3. Hey guys, long time, no post... Anyway, I was wondering if SB2 is any better than SB1. Sony is somewhat notorious for releasing new software that is no better (and in fact sometimes worse) than the previous version and I was wondering if there have been a lot of problems with it. Is it worth the upgrade?
  4. Nope, there aren't any programs out there other than OpenMG, Sonicstage, Simple Burner, and RealOne. Programs like Sound Forge can transfer files, but not as well as any of the above and aren't really noteworthy. Sharp has BeatJam, although I've never heard anyone mention how well it functions or if it's compatible with Sony recorders. That's it. If you want to try to write a program that can do NetMD stuff, power to ya!

    Won't work

    Weird....it mentions PCM length, like there's something wrong with the wave in the conversion. That's strange. You might have a codec issue somewhere.
  6. There's a trick to use Simple Burner to transfer mp3's and other audio files on your computer to minidisc. Take a look here: http://forums.minidisc.org/viewtopic.php?t=880 And here's a program that helps simplify the process: http://forums.minidisc.org/viewtopic.php?t=1815
  7. Sounds to me like SS screwed up. Whenever I've gotten that message it was from me copying omg files from one computer to another. If you're trying to transfer CD tracks to minidisc, why is the title of your post called "adding copyright info to mp3's and wma's?" mp3 and wma shouldn't be involved anywhere in the MD to CD proces...

  9. Wait...someone actually managed to fix an erased TOC...hells yes! Sooooo many people get on and ask for solutions to unerase discs, and almost always the answer is no. That's awesome that someone managed to actually repair a TOC. I'm thrilled to hear that for once an erased disc got saved.

    md to md recording

    This has nothing to do with NetMD, so I'm moving it. As for your question, the only way to record from one MD to another with normal MD equipment is to playback the source minidisc on one MD with the volume up all the way and the bass boost off. Connect the headphones/line-out jack of the source MD player to the line-in jack of the other minidisc recorder, and have it record as the source minidisc plays back.
  11. Sounds to me like something is wrong with the MD unit if it won't record via NetMD or line-in and you've tried three different discs. The magnetic head might be broken or something. Either way, the unit might still be under warranty, so look into that before you try to fix it yourself. As for the noise, what kind of noise is it? The unit should make some noise when it's saving stuff, it should sound like it's spinning up the disc. It should definetly not take longer than a few seconds to save the recording.

    iMic Question

    Try messing with the sound levels for your computer. If the sound is distorted, you might have the levels too high.
  13. Unfortunately, unless your friend has access to certain MD equipment that we know TOC tricks for, I think she's out of luck. I don't know of any way to rewrite TOC's using the N10. Scroll down just a little on this page and see if and of the TOC tricks can help you out. http://www.minidisc.org/part_hacking.html
  14. Well, that sounds kinda funny. However, I do know that the internal lithium ion battery charges pretty quickly. The longest I've ever seen mine need to charge has been an hour and a half, and I believe that's when the battery was dead. My unit typically requires less than half an hour to charge.
  15. Infinite. Heh heh, I love MD. Essentially, the discs last forever. Sony claims they can be rewritten 1 million times a piece.
