  1. This was at my church as an alternative to cassette recording, but it was never used and so it came home with me. Deck works great, all buttons are in great shape, the loading mechanism is perfectly fine. It comes with the titling/editing remote, which is in great condition (other than the two initials on the back of it). None of the lettering in worn off, and the battery cover is nice and tight - no corrosion on the contacts either. I figures I'd put this here before I slapped it up on ebay, but if there is no interest then that's where it will head. $50.00 US plus shipping, I'll ship anywhere in the world. US Postal Priority mail should be less than $20.00, I think it'll be about 16.50. Sorry about the bad picture quality - I have only a used camera that I got for 1 dollar at a yard sale.
  2. Too bad it's not pink. I REALLY want a pink or purple MD unit...........
  3. I Have Journey, Maet Loaf, and Toad the Wet Sprocket on MD - PM me for details if interested.
  4. Where are you located, and what all is included?
  5. Okay, item now on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...em=170035636618
  6. If you want a home Deck, PM me - I have one I could offer to you. Sony MDS-JE510.
  7. Okay, I finally have pictures. So, if anyone is interested now, here's what it looks like - running and all (I plugged it into the 12V line on my PC's PSU to get 12 V without it being in my car. Also, there's a pic of the 97-02 Escort faceplate. [attachmentid=1983] [attachmentid=1984] [attachmentid=1985]
  8. pitchbend, if you still are interested, read your PM's - maybe you didn't notice I sent you one. If anyone else is interested, let me know - the escort faceplate is for the 97-02 series, I have installation instructions for it too.
  9. I'm looking to get rid of my in-dash car MD player. It works perfectly, everything at 100%, the only problem is that I have a bunch of MD's from swaps that are LP2 and I can't play them on my unit - it's SP/Mono only, like almost every other head unit. I'll actually have the ability to listen to MORE MD's if I go back to my cassette adapter and use a portable that has LP functions. Detachable fold-down faceplate, level meter display (5 modes), I might be able to dig up the original UK ISO connectors - it's currently set to be wired to a USA Ford Escort. If you have an Escort, and you'd like the unit, I'll sell you the dash kit as well - so that you can put any single-DIN unit in instead of the nasty factory radio. Sadly, I do not have the mounting hardware for it, but I do have the manual on CD for the unit. 65 dollars plus shipping takes it, I'll ship it anywhere in the globe; price is mildly flexible. I would also take a trade for an MDLP compatible portable with a mic-in jack. Any takers?
  10. Check out this pile - where did he find all this!? http://cgi.ebay.com/Sony-DATA-MD-minidisc-...1QQcmdZViewItem
  11. I was ripping some CD's to my PC the other day, and ran into a problem. Now that I'm back into MD really heavy, how do I want to rip my files? Also, above and beyond format, what bitrate do I want? I've always been an iTunes user, just because I liked the interface and layout better than winamp. Now, though, Running SonicStage and iTunes together and trying to make sure that my music library doesn't get all jumbled is too much. Should I just switch entirely to OMG and SonicStage? What bitrate of ATRAC should I rip at, if I typically made mp3's at 192 kbps? As it stands now, I have no Hi-MD equipment.
  12. We did a trade of parts so thar I could get my n707 working again, and I just wanted to say that he packages items very carefully and is a great communicator!
  13. If not, then what is it? It's a square disc.
  14. Hey - you missed the other spot in "The Matrix" that has an MD in it (I don't have the movie, so no screenshot, sorry). When Tank, I believe, is loading up a program in the computer, he puts an MD into a tray, CD-style. Can anyone screen this for me?
  15. In the anime "Full Metal Panic," when agent Sosuke Sagara is being readied on how to work undercover in a high school (episode 1), there is an MD player and a bunch of discs in his "common high-school student supplies." Also, there is a WonderSwan game unit!
  16. What about an Aiwa AM-NX1 from Great Britain? I know it's made by Sony, how do I get into it's service mode or what does it take to hack it?
  17. So, wait a minute. What exactly is this supposed to do? Is there a faster way to perform this hack than to edit every XML file one at a time? Does it really matter if I have a CRT? I'm confused.......
  18. NH1 is a little out of my current price range, so I guess it's a DR80 for now (not that I mind...); I'll get an RH1 once they're available.
  19. GOLD NH1 unit - I didn't even know they came in gold! http://cgi.ebay.com/SONY-MiniDisc-MZ-NH1-H...1QQcmdZViewItem
  20. Well, it appears as if I've found the problem. IC302. The Headphone Amp. It would appear as if I'm in the market for a new recorder......................... Everything else works on it, except for sound output. Time for a DR80.......
  21. Well, see, here's my slight dilemma. I can't work on my 707 unless my wife is gone; she refuses to allow me to solder while she's here (and I can understand she doesn't want to be breathing lead/rosin fumes, I don't find them tasty myself). For the work schedules we have, it's somewhat hard to have time to myself. Also, I want an Auvi bad enough to TASTE it, something like the DR80's that are for sale here (if my 707 is totally kaput, I MIGHT be able to replace it now (but I did just buy an E10)) or a DR7. Upgrading to Hi-MD is a tricky task itself. Of the units that are out, I have VERY high standards for what I want to get, and I'm not sure what fits them best. I'm willing to import a unit from any country to get the features that I want/need (like the RH710 - I can't use a US unit, they have no mic in, but one that does have the mic input would work). Here is my list: 1. must have mic, line, and optical inputs 2. prefer a remote with LCD screen (will go without screen if I have to/find one at a really good price 3. must be able to record in original SP and LP2 as well as new Hi-MD compressions 4. I prefer Li-Ion batteries to Ni-MH, so I'd be more willing to purchase one powered by Li-Ion. I don't loathe Ni-MH, I just have a preference - and they're not it. So, now what? Wait for an RH1, or try and get an older Hi-MD unit that fits? Or, just buy a DR80? LOL
  22. My first ever MD unit, my beloved MZ-N707 (with the RZ-900 hack) that I bought from an old admin here, is dying! It records just fine from mic, USB, optical, and line-in. Playback is fine too, except: No sound comes out. Headphones directly plugged in or through the remote makes no difference. If I hold on the headphone jack, sort of sqeezing it to the circuit board, it picks up just fine. I disassembled it according to the service manual, and tested the jack with a multimeter - everything seems to check out fine. I even un-soldered the jack and re-soldered it on (don't worry, I've done electronics repair for 8 years), but the problem still exists. Is this internal to the circuit board? Is my N707 shot? Is the board cracked somewhere that may cause this? Please help! I love this unit to much to see it go! If it is dead, I don't know what I'll do - probably something drastic, like buy a DR80 or move up to Hi-MD!
  23. Doesn't matter which one, the regular or special edition, I actually didn't know there were two. I was just looking for one with the electricity/telephone pole on it.
  24. He's not asking about playing through the computer, he asked about uploading. I just need some more info to be able to help him.
  25. When you plug in the unit, can you mount it as a drive? Possibly /dev/scd_ where "_" is some number. Either that, or it might be /dev/usb_. What flavor of linux are you running? That would be helpful information too. Plug in the unit, and run "lsusb". What results do you get?
