Report Hi-MD 1GB blanks becoming rare? in Minidisc Posted December 20, 2006 · Edited December 20, 2006 by DATfan Did they really think there was MORE of a Hi-MD market in MEXICO or CANADA????? The answer is, unsurprisingly, "Yes."Items to note.One.MD is going away. We've known that ever since Sony announced, over a year ago, that it was rationalizing its product line. Going away means that more and more stores will not have any more MDs. One day, there will be no new MDs, except on eBay, and in the closets of MD-forever-ists. Perhaps, in a post-apocalyptic world, another civilization will arise, and it will develop minidiscs. Until then, there will be a "slight delay."Two.The release of the MZ-RH1 was extraordinary, and exceeded (for most of us) our rational expectations for what Sony would ever do with MD. This was the aging prizefighter on a last comeback, going out on top. Three.Going forward, any properly-functioning MD setup will continue to work exactly the same as it does now. That is all!
