  1. at my school we use sound forge (probably an older version) and I use my hi-md and upload all the time. you just need a connector from the headphone jack to your computer, and record it as an external source in soundforge. just make sure your levels are turned up high to make sure your quality is great. from there, save in any format you wish.
  2. Marc thanks so much for your constant coding. I'm still using version 4 of your program, but it has worked well so far for me. Keep it up,
  3. first, take a breath I was in the same place you are a little while ago. did you download the ss2.1 from this site? You will need the himd renderer program as well. From your post, I think you want to record from a hi-md either to another hi-md or a cd. (I would have to go back and read it again), both are easy to do, and the himd renderer has actually put my mind at ease. If you're worried, make a copy of your file (s) from within sonic stage, before you put the file through the renderer. once it has been converted to a .wav file, you can import it back into sonic stage and select where you wish to burn this file back to. IT is a lot of shuffling, but definately worth it in the end, when you hear how good it sounds. I haven't tried this in linux yet, so I can't help you there... hope this helps
  4. I was on the sony (canada) website, and it says that hi-md discs are in stock and ready to ship. Does this mean they are finally here to stay?????
  5. hi I'm not sure if they have this in the US (or abroad), but sony canada has mail in rebates, up to 50 bucks if you buy a hi-md recorder. also best buy and future shop have some great deals if you're in the market. hope this helps you all out...especially with the new wav converter, that guy is awesome.
  6. but if I make them upgrade, then the same copyright issue will come up as I'm having with hi-mds. I am hoping to get the old program today, and then buy a regular minidisc so I can start recording for school and transfer to my computer
  7. I've got sonic stage 2.1, while some of my freiends are using whatever came with the old mds
  8. hi Is it possible to record a regular md (not himd) in a hi-md player which can still be read on the regular minidisc player? I want to find some way around this copyright issue, and some of my friends have the old software for regular mds thanks,
  9. Thanks I'll try this all again a bit later tonight and let you know
  10. maybe I should just reinstall it. thanks so much for your patience
  11. I tried to do everything 5c from the wav converter on this site. I still have the first version, maybe I should try toying around with the 2nd version. it seems to be working fine, I just get those errors no matter what I do
  12. yes, the mz-nhf800. did I maybe record in the wrong format? I just picked this up a few days ago, so I'm learning all the buttons. I just recorded straight from the mic with whatever the factory settings were
  13. yes, I'm using sonicstage 2.1, which I downloaded from this site. I'm new to this recording end of computing, so I ask for your patience. should I not have tried to copy it and put it on the desktop? would this change the files at all? (you never know with windows)
  14. I copied the files from himd to my deskop (to try and simplify things) and tried to follow the directions to get it to work. I kept getting error messages.--could not open input file. I noticed the files I copied are .oma not the .omg, is this a problem?
  15. I wanted to transfer my sonic stage wiles to wav using the program on this site, but for some reason it's not working out (I have heard it works well though). I called sony today and realize what you all are talking about in regards to customer service. It ain't so good. I got more frustrated with the guy who could give me no answers when the new programs (wav converter) will be out--he said they were just starting to work on it. And I told him I will most likely return the himd then. Unless someone else can help me along, cause I believe I am at least somewhat computer literate.....
  16. hi I was wondering if there is any word on the official wav converter from sony is coming out? I know there is a converter on this site (from marc, I believe), but the disclaimer at the start of how to use it makes me a little timid--I'm sure it's great though. I hope not to offend, but I need these files for school mostly, so I need to make sure they are usable 100% of the time. thanks
  17. thanks can I have some advice how to use it properly?
  18. I am a bit stubborn, but need some help I have just bought a hi-md recorder and tonight have recorded songs at band practice. I tried to burn these to a cd, but sonicstage 2.1 says something about copyright restrictions. how can I get around this? I realize that a third program will most likely need to be used to decode the files, but I am only finding bits and pieces here and thereon these forums, and the link for total recorder isn't working. Is there a free program that does a similar job (I just bought this --wonderful-- piece of machinery) If this isn't working, I am considering taking it back and making a big stink about it, even though I need this player for school. thanks very much
  19. hi I was wondering if the update to sonicstage 2.1 (link from the forums) will enable me to burn my hi-md recordings to a cd??? thanks
  20. I realize that everyone has their preferences, but here we go.... I need a device to record interviews (for school), band demos, and just to listen to at the gym. I've heard good things about the hi-md (besides some software glitches) but I also know there are some die hard ipod guys here too. Which is better for recording with the proper equipment? thanks,
  21. hi I've been researching like mad these minidisc players and have a few questions (that I hope aren't answered elsewhere). One of my friends told me that you might be able to use a mic using the optical input and an adaptor. is this true? Also I was seriously considering these new hi-mds, but there has been a lot of negative feedback about them. am I best off just to get a regular minidisc? I will be using this to record for school (broadcasting) as well as stuff for my band and occasional listening to music at the gym. I just want to be able to edit and burn onto a cd with no real hassle. is the hi-md worth it then? thanks,
