  1. Am I right in saying that MP3 is the same as MP2 minus the sound you can't hear? Or did I make that up? And if you removed these sounds before encoding them to MP2 would it be pretty much the same as MP3? If I'm right about them of course. p.s. I also have the XDR-S1, there are a few bugs in the software though, I'll let you spot them for yourself!
  2. I was quite annoyed that Hi-MD only supports stereo recording, what if you want to use a mono microphone? Also, I remember Sonicstage had some problems using monoural sound-files, not sure if this is still the case, but annoying none-the-less.

    Wow, amazing. Check out my old street -> Latitude: 51°28'35.71"N, Longitude: 2°41'6.55"W The lake where I went fishing with my dad, and my dog almost drowned! -> Latitude: 51°28'47.20"N, Longitude: 2°40'9.82"W Used to walk down this lane (Dog Sh*t Lane) to get to the shops and buy custard slices for mother, some buggers have developed over the old playground -> Latitude: 51°28'37.55"N, Longitude: 2°41'8.16"W Ah, memories
  4. I had a similar experience when I put a CD in my brother's CD player and it was playing the disc before it, wierd!? After a while I realised I forgot to take the other CD out before I put the new one in, .
  5. I used the toothpaste method on my LCD wall clock which fell off my wall and scratched itself on my bedside table . Looks a lot better than it did, thanks Kurisu! I may use this method on my NW-A3000 which didn't take too long to scratch, I was being so careful with it as well . Am I right in saying that the covers for LCD screens are a mixture of plastic and glass? Would this method work on, say, the windscreen of a car?
  6. If you mean new revision then that will be an update, a newer version of Simple Burner. I don't think the current generation of MD player's do support ATRAC lossless actually but a new version may be able to offer 352 kbps ATRAC3plus.
  7. Did you watch the celebrations on the BBC, lol. Amazing amount of fireworks but I would like to know how much it all cost. Respect to the presenters who managed to find so much to talk about, after all, it is just another year really. I'm going to actually try and follow my new year's resolution this year. Perhaps, maybe this year.
  8. Correction, 1st generating players cannot play MP3s, because they need transcoding first. Sony claim that their Minidisc units can play MP3s, WMAs etc., when they actually can't and need to be transcoded first. Personally, I find the information Sony provide to be misleading and innacurate (perhaps, reading closely, it isn't such innacurate but it's very sneaky indeed!) Correction, I meant generation, sorry
  9. Yeah, I wondered that. I bought the official Sony MD lens cleaner but was confused about whether it supported Hi-MD. Surely any MD lens cleaner should work?
  10. It wasn't anything to do with the WEP key was it? The problems I have had with my USB connector are to do with the Internet Connection Sharing and the WEP key. Had to reinstall the software twice which is a real nuisance, just missed a race with a couple of friends I found online . Also, anyone else noticed that Nintendo's software uses a fair bit of processing when it's not in use, it caused the picture in DScaler (A program I use to watch TV and play game consoles) to judder, I removed the Nintendo software from memory and it was fine thereafter.
  11. This is how I see it: If Sony were to release firmware updates for 1st generation models to improve functionality then people are less likely to buy into the second generation. Not only would Sony lose money on development but they would lose money on sales too. So the chances of a firmware update are pretty small. Does anyone know if the Hi-MD units are capable of firmware updates over USB though?
  12. Cool, thanks. I'd have to transcode though, not sure about that.

    What a strange thread
  14. I'd recommend a stereo mic because the current range of Hi-MD Recorders don't support monoural recording as far as I can tell.
