    So Cheap!

    Hi, if you do not want to record something via Microphone or from a CD player, you might have a look at the Hi-MD photo: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=11200&hl= I just bought it (Japanese version), and usability wise I like it a lot (e.g. nice display). And even my wife likes it very much, so it is not just a gadget. But I am not sure, if a iPod (mini) does not provide much more space for the music for less money. For just listening to music (copied from the PC) it is a clear improvement to NetMD. Chris
  2. Yes that works fine, I did it a few times now. It would be even better, if the album images would be synchronized, but it does not get updated at the MD if I attach the image after transfering it to MD. But still it looks nice. I do not really know the iPod Foto, but I assume it works similar to this all, but of course which much more space on disc. It still holds true that MD is a little bit dated in comparison to harddisc players, but at least it now works fine and without software crashes, with decent space for albums and with a great display.
  3. Hi, I just got today my first Hi-MD, with the camera feature (1.3 MP). So far the display looks very good, a lot of details and great song navigation. Pictures look good if taken at good light. It is not like a real camera, but its good enough for some fun pictures and for desktop backgrounds. The playback of Mp3 files is great, saves converting time and should give better quality than re-encoding. VBR files seem to be no problem. So far I am very happy with the player. OK, I added a few pictures I just made to this post. I ordered the player from audiocubes and it arrived exactly one
  4. Hi, I hope I already answered by mail, if not or for other interested users: if PayPal does not work or any other problem exists, the problem can be solved by contacting me.
  5. I finished moving to a new site: http://winnmd.net I will now have more time to answer the emails which now can be directed to chris@winnmd.net, I try to answer them now much more timely I'll also try to keep up good service and have a look at new features.
  6. Hello, I think there exists a application from Creative that plays back the music and adds a delay between the songs, thus this app makes it a little bit more comfortable to record to MD, most times (depending on the soundcard and audio connection) the track marks should then be created correctly. You might also try e. g. winamp with some "pause-plugin". Or if you have a CD player with digital out, you might try to create a Audio CD-RW from the music and play that on the Stereo and record to MD (optical-digital). Normally you would then get best quality and correct track marks. As there a so
  7. Hi, on my system this worked fine, I now even use SonicStage 2.2. In the about dialog I get this info: SonicStage : SonicStage Add-on for Connect : OpenMG Secure Module : MagicGate Memory Stick Device : NW-E2, NW-E3, NW-E5 and NW-E8P : OpenMG CD : CD Walkman : Hi-MD : Music Clip, NW-S4, NW-E7 and NW-E10 : HDWM : Net MD : EMD Plug-in: Playback Plug-in : CD-R Writing Module(ATRAC CD/Audio CD/MP3 CD) : Px Engin
  8. Hi, just send me an mail to meg@gmx.de. Include "win nmd" in the subject, I am still there and try to answer all mails :-) the website will be back online in the near future. p.s. your nick-image does not look very good, sorry
  9. Hello, I will look at Hi-MD this fall (I do not have one, yet), I still hope that Sony will release this WAV converter, so a change to my app would not be needed. Also, currently, my website is down, because of the much decreased storage space of my provider (<2MB)... I am still available by mail or here by message and I will try to fix the problem during next days :smile:
  10. One way is to burrn a audio CD to CD-RW and copy that e.g. with SimpleBurner. I did this recently, I needed the songs on CD and MD, so no real time loss :smile:
  11. I use the public preview of SP2 on XP and SS2 works good. If this problem persists it might even be a good news as Sony then would have to provide a fix for the problem and then eventually SS2 would work on Server 2003, too. (if these problems are really related) Chris
  12. Hi Lisa, you can find it out by installing and using the test function. I think some people got it work with non-Sony players, but many could not get it to work. I think that there are some (Sony?) dlls missing in these cases. A USB soundcard would work like any other soundcard. But not at the Mac, my app is Windows only, but I guess you do not meant that. I hope this helps :smile:
  13. I got your mail with these questions today, so I try to answer them here and by mail. The hints on recordings to the PC apply to all recording apps, not just my. I uploaded yesterday (13.4.) a new version which allows to burn audio cds and also does not provide the old "MCI" recording mode. The better recording mode which you should select (if you use a older version) is the "DirectX" recording mode. Only with this the volume bars can show the actual recording level. The most recent version also allows to listen to the recording during the recording, this means you can check the recording qua

    Uploading to a Mac

    Perhaps you can try the Mic-Input. Or if you have some friends or a PC at work you could just try another PC/Mac. Would be much easier if you just want to record one disc.
  15. You are right, my app does not work when SS2 is installed. I found the same problem. I needed to uninstall all Sony Apps and delete the reg-keys from the registry. Then a reinstall of the older apps fixed the problem. I plan to do some more tests and system-comparisons on what changes when SS2 is installed; eventually I will find out what the problem is or how to work around it. Edit: I updated the version for windows 2000/XP which now should work also with SS2.0 installed. At least on my PC this works; currently I modify the NetMD API during runtime and revert the changes after closing th
