    I've got one of these units as well. Probably my favorite MDLP player.
  2. Glad to see you guys and MarC swapping info.. MarC has been here for us MD users for a long time. Keep up the great work guys!
  3. Sony has been known to be able to recover Hi-MD material. If it was NetMD/MDLP I could help you out, but because of encryption keys used for Hi-MD, only Sony can work with Hi-MD (as far as I know). Good luck!
  4. Definitely low mic sensitivity. I have done my fair share of train field recordings.
  5. Chris G might want to buy yr unit from you... J/K Not sure about that specific unit ATM--and this may be a silly question-- but did you go into the menus and check the equalizer?
  6. eek,,, that's a bit frightening... though I guess the price we all pay inevitably for using mechanical devices. sorry to hear though, i'd be heartbroken.
  7. Keep in mind that you won't be able to upload anything you recorded with your N707 using any Hi-MD recorder, you need to use the RH1/M200. Other Hi-MD units will upload Hi-MD recordings just fine, but the RH1/M200 is the only one that will upload older NetMD/MDLP/etc. recordings. http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=7070
  8. I've uploaded the full 4.2 here for the time being: http://drop.io/4eod1ht You'd do best to completely delete 4.3 (including registry entries if you are comfortable finding and deleting them). Before you do so, be sure to back up anything you have in SonicStage... 1. Uninstall 4.3 via add/remove programs 2. Delete the following folders: "Documents and Settings/All Users/Application Data/Sony Corporation/Sonicstage" "Documents and Settings/All Users/Sonicstage" "Program Files/Common Files/Sony Shared" "Program Files/Sony/Sonicstage" "Program Files/Sony/Personal Audio Driver" 3. Delete the following registry keys: 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Sony Corporation/Sonicstage' 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Sony Corporation' 4. Make sure your AntiVirus is temporarily disabled, and reinstall using 4.2 5. Enjoy! -Aaron EDIT: The installer was grabbed from this site awhile ago, but to be safe there are various online single-file virus scanners available if you would like to scan the file for viruses prior to installing. I know disabling antivirus can be nerve-racking. ...Alternately you can just point yr antivirus to the downloaded file prior to disabling it to install... EDIT 2: If you still encounter the issue, perhaps try reinstalling/upgrading Windows Media Player?
  9. 4.2 is yr best bet if you can find it. Many ppl have reported problems with 4.3 on anything other than Vista.
  10. I've been in the same boat, so to speak... Since then I've just uploaded everything right away and done all editing afterward...
  11. You would need to use an RH1/M200 to do the uploading... As this is the only unit that will upload MDLP recordings... This is provided the tracks weren't transferred to the disc via SonicStage, in which case you are out of luck without using some TOC Hacking / cloning (not a particularly easy task, especially with the NH900). EDIT: Check out some of the links in my signature area for more detailed info...
  12. Let us know the Operating System you are using (XP, Vista, or otherwise), as well as the exact version of SonicStage ... 4.2, 4.3 etc... -aA
  13. Is the disc recorded in NetMD or Hi-MD format? TOC-Cloning only works with NetMD formats... Don't blame ya for not wanting to mess with a perfectly good unit. If it's NetMD I can help you with recovery using one of my own units if need be.
  14. i use cassette recorders (and the cassettes) for experimental sound works ("music").
  15. will be 29 in a little over a month.
  16. wow, they must not be all that familiar with SONY, hahah
  17. Yeah this always frustrated me... I haven't found a way around it, but would be immensely grateful to anyone that does!
  18. be cautious of samplerate... MD is 44.1, video is usually 48... it might not be an issue except for lengthy recordings though (might go out of sync).
  19. use 4.3, as it is the only version that is tehnically "vista-ready". hope this helps.
  20. The best way to get yr recordings from one PC to another (this is also good practice anyway) is to remove DRM from the recordings: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=16088 After doing so, you will be able to freely move them from PC to PC, archive, etc. with no problems. Also, I would recommend using SonicStage 4.2 unless you are running Vista. Plenty of members here (myself included) have experienced a multitude of different problems with 4.3 on operating systems other than Vista. The only thing 4.3 has over 4.2 that I am aware of is Vista compatibility, so you won't miss out on any added functionality by using 4.2
  21. yeah pretty much any MDLP or Hi-MD player will play it back just fine.
  22. Ahh, the long-lost MZ-0... Circa 1936. Where on earth did you find one?
  23. Just to throw it out there, I personally was one of the ones that had issues with 4.3 on XP SP2 (haven't tried it w/SP3)... Specifically, after an LP2/LP4 upload (via RH1), there would be an error and the result would be no actual Atrac3 file in my library or anywhere. I got around this for awhile by canceling the transfer @ 99% & copying the (almost complete) files from "C:\Documents & Settings\All Users\SonicStage\Packages\*".. Not long afterward, I downgraded and everything worked fine again. I did entertain the possibility that this could perhaps have been due to previous SonicStage remnants/drivers/etc... But tossed that theory after a fresh install of Windows and then 4.3 (with no prior versions) resulted in the same behavior. That said, I'm not sure what issues other people were having. But from my experience you run a greater risk of running into problems running 4.3 on XP, and don't really gain anything even if you do get it working...
  24. Oh you wouldn't believe how long it took me to figure that one out
