  1. umm.... probably should have posted in Hi-MD considering noone's replied so far.. anyways, i managed to repair it ! first i checked the service manual to see which steps would be necessary for taking out the mainboard, and found out that it's necessary to unsolder battery contacts and sth else - which i wanted to avoid... but since i was alrady thinking about 'permanently lowering' the recorder head, i simply used a tiny screwdriver to apply some "mild violence" to the parts of the mechanism i was able to reach without removing the mainboard. popped in a disc and the battery, and Voilà ! back to working condition as if nothing had happened. obviously it was only stuck for some reason. ...okay, i should admit that the 'system files' of two disks got rendered useless, one whilst testing to record in a disassembled state, and the other one was probably already damaged beforehand, since it was that disc i was trying to record on when it first failed. both disks still played fine but were unaccessable by sonic stage. the first received a medium format, the other one is an optical recording of a gapless double cd (K&D Sessions) so im waiting until i've got sth. to write here will report back when i got some live recording experience with the 'repaired' unit, so far it seems to work just fine. i've successfuly tested recording via mic in, transfer and playback. so long, Mo
  2. Hi, recently, i tried to record a session with my band, when i had to find out, my player is unable to record. (afterwards of course, recording was lost/never made, imagine the faces of my bandmates ) I was hoping for a broken wire to the recorder head, but when i unscrewed it, and tested to edit, i saw, that the lock and record-head lowering mechanism doesn't move at all. I really want to avoid unscrewing the board. It looks like a lot of trouble to me, and if its anything beyond a broken wire i can't repair it anyways, so i'd rather try to save me the pain of dis- and reassembly... I think there was someone who had the same problem, and solved it by modifying the mechanism, so the head would _always_ touch the surface, but i can't find the thread anywhere. i wonder how that turned out in the long term (recorder head wear ?) So if you know where the thread is or have any other helping ideas i would be very thankful. greets, Mo
  3. hey, where's my "md 'in the movies'" thread ? nevermind, here's my contribution: [attachmentid=1780] [attachmentid=1781] it's a scan of "alita battle angel" issue 8 (german edition) the md contains a message to alita by ido who is kind of a father figure to her. he has lost his mind after finding out his brain was replaced by a chip when he was 18 years old. a manga worth reading anyways.
  4. i've received 6 spam-mails today, on my previously spam free email account. could still be coincidence, but i just wanted to tell, so you know... (and i'm not talking about that spoof mail with that virus containing exe wich i didn't get since the checkbox is unchecked)
  5. weird. i upgraded yesterday, out of a random mood, and had outgoing connection alerts rom my pf (sygate) afterwards turned out that i had yet to disable the "check for new versions" and "anoymous user reports" and stuff, now it's quiet - doh.
  6. hi, here is "my way" of doing it: i was primarily interested in a more convenient (or any) way to get formerly gapless albums that had been ripped to mp3 (not gapless~) to play on my md gapless again, with trackmarks and tracklist info. specificly mixed albums. So i import those mp3 tracks into soundforge (44.1/16) altogether, create a new file at the same rate and copy/paste the tracks into the new one in the right order. The important thing here is, to set a marker at the end of each track before pasting the new ones. Then i remove the gaps. I save the file, open Nero (v5.5), create a new audio cd, and put that file in it. Now i right klick the file ->properties, and go to the tab "indices, borders, divide" (i don't know the exakt wording in the english nero version, mine is german. it's the middle tab.) The cool thing here is, that Nero gets the marker positions inserted by Soundforge, so i only have to press "split at index positions" and i'm done. I set the pauses between the tracks to zero and burn it as an image. Image gets mounted, open Simple Burner, and hopefully Gracenote works, so i get the album- and tracknames... Don't know if that helps anyone, but i'm pretty happy with it. P.S. i wondered about the 75fps limitation, and thought i'd avoid it by putting a whole single file into nero, but fact is, that i didn't pay attention to where the markers were. still all three albums that i've tried play seamlessly in my md.
  7. well, the unit is like a week old, and it hasn't had the opporunity to discharge over a longer period, the battery has made about 2-3 charge/discharge cycles. it ran dry while playing, and the battery couldn't be recharged since. i'm currently trying to charge it with my nh900, but it acts as if the battery was already full, meaning the charging sign appears for about 2 minutes, then disappears again, and the battery remains uncharged. i already believe the battery might be broken. //edit: i just tested it with my digital multimeter, and it turned out to have a total voltage of exactly 0.00. that's bad, right ?
  8. Hi, so my gf got herself a rh10, and it worked fine until today, since it refuses to charge its akku. it seems not to recognize it at all. if i insert the battery from my nh900 it charges it correctly, and if i insert her akku into my unit, the akku gets charged as well, but the unit simply refuses to charge its own battery. it doesn't load when connected to usb either. i'm stuck here, could this be some "burning in" that the batery still needs, or is it perhaps super discharged so the unit doesn't recognize it ? the unit is almost brandnew btw, and shows no other flaws different from this issue. thx.
  9. Detroit Grand Pubahs - Galactic Ass Creatures Frum Uranus i really like their lyrics
  10. custom 1 is fitted for my earphones (raise in the lows), custom 2 for my active speakers at my parents' (raise in the highs), no eq for listening on my home hifi set. i used to change the settings a lot more when my remote display wasn't broke yet, now i mostly leave it how it is. so i use the eq to adapt different speakers/phones to sound at least a little more similar.
  11. unit: mz-nh900, about 20 HiMds, ~25 "old disks" use/listening: daily; while walking, jogging, biking, at home, at friends, in cars. use/recording: weekly; radio shows, field recording, use/data: weekly-monthly, i'd use it more for data if mp3 was direct drag and dop. alternatives: none. request: keep md alive, please. and drop drm.
  12. my father who says yeah, you're welcome !
  13. and if they get "hit" by something, or fall down, the disk inside gets loose, and rattles around. not good
  14. yes i hate them ! they're such a waste of space, and much less practical to use. why not make this thread a poll ?
