  1. I'm currently using SS4.2 and simple burner. To resolve a non SS related problem I need to format my hard drive and re-install XP. If I install SS 4.3 is it possible to also use simple burner - I remember reading that simple burner is now discontinued.
  2. Looks like ATRAC will live on in Japan: http://www.atraclife.com/2007/09/11/atrac-...eries/#more-257 Recording features too!
  3. "Today Sony announced its intent to move to a Windows Media Technology platform for Walkman® products in the United States, Canada and Europe." Is ATRAC totally dead or will it live on in Japan/Asia?
  4. You can still buy them on the high street too if you look hard enough. I bought three HiMD disks from John Lewis on Oxford Street two weeks ago - £5.50 each. Strangely they weren't with the rest of the audio spares (tapes, cds, regular mds etc) but in the photographic section. I think most Sony Centre shops have a few disks available.
  5. I have been given some (copyright free) music in flac format that I wish to listen to on my Hi-MD player. It seems to do this I need to transfer the flac files to wav format which I can then import into sonic stage. My question is how to do this transfer - what's the best software to use? Is there an alternative way of doing this? Many thanks
  6. Thanks all for your comments. The files are in Hi-SP format already and are free from DRM - I'm perfectly happy with this level of compression as the source material is a tape of FM broadcast material so quality level is fine. Given this I guess my question is more specifically is any proprietary format suitable for long term (say 10 years) storage (ATRAC/WMA/MP3 etc) or is open source the way to go. Given its ubiquitous nature is MP3 close enough to open source?
  7. I have recorded a collection of 50 ten year old tapes of radio shows. These were good quality BBC FM broadcasts recorded onto TDK SA90's with Dolby S - state of the art 1993. These are now saved on my hard drive in Hi-SP format (with DRM stripped as helpfully recommended from this forum). In order to free up hard drive space I wish to archive these recordings onto DVD - my question is what the best format music file to use is? Although these ATRAC recordings are currently free of DRM I guess I am a little concerned that somewhere along the line Sony will unhelpfully make these unplayable when I come to use them again in the future! Thanks for your help.
  8. Sony Europe aren't sending 4.2 on CD as they say 4.3 will be out early next year.
  9. Having done a bit more research i seems all BMW 1 series come with a AUX in socket. It seems the real benefit of a factory fitted MD deck is that (I think) you get steering wheel control of the MD.
  10. It appears that the BMW 1 series has a MD player as a factory fit option (replacing CD player). Does anyone have any experience or info about this?
  11. I have a spare RM-MC40ELK remote with a faulty "stop" button. Whilst all other buttons and the imput dial work the lack of a stop button was so annoying to myself (and Sony wanted so much cash to repair) that I have got a replacement unit. If anyone would like the faulty remote please let me know. I'm based in the UK - I'll send to members in the UK for a modest donation to my favourite charity Sightsavers http://www.sightsavers.org.uk/
  12. One month after its guarantee expired the "cancel" button on my RM-MC40 ELK has stopped working. Everything else is ok - the offending button just doesn't work and doesn't have that nice springy feel. Does anyone know if these are fixable - can you open them up yourself easily to see what's going on inside? Thanks
  13. Hi-SP to Mac is great! Your inference is that you can't send music the other way - no simple burner style functionality? Any idea if this will work with earlier machines?
