  1. Hi Trying to record from my stereo to my JE780 via the optical cable but I get the Din Unlock C17 error as soon as I press the record button. Cable at both ends is seated correctly and is working correctly as far as I know. Sony suggests a "power reset" but can't find how I do that. Also, the Optical In doesn't seem to have a red light which I guess is the nature of the error; is there a simple fix for this? Thanks in advance.
  2. hmmm if you can figure out how to add PC-Link to the 640 I for one would be eternally grateful.
  3. Hi to everyone here. I'm new to the forum and I have a Sony Mds-je 510 minidisc deck which is now dead. It was working fine,but was showing blinking 'standby' when you switch it on. This is a sign for a weak battery and I decided to replace it. It all went smooth, I disconnected the three ribbon cables and ac cord from the main board, pulled it out of the casing, desoldered the old battery, soldered the new one and put back the main board in place. When I switched it on - disaster! No signs of life at all. I went for a cigarette, thinking what might be the problem and when I came back I saw I
  4. So this has happened twice in a row now. An error shows up during HiMD data transfer. Subsequently SonicStage immediately deletes all tracks from recording group! This is unforgivable. The tracks play fine after the recording. I know this for a fact because I try to bleed the battery dry before connecting to PC (to prevent battery memory), so I play the tracks till the battery runs out. Is there a way to prevent this (would the write protect tab work)? Is there a way to recover audio that has been deleted this way, including the track marks?
  5. I have a MDS-JB940 minidisc deck. Having an issue wilt TOC writing. issue is: 1. when I complete recording a disc and eject, TOC writing will occasionally lock up the machine. Only option is to unplug it, which ejects the disc and is then blank. 2. whenever I completely erase a disc and eject it, TOC writing will always lock up the machine. Only option is to unplug it, which then ejects the disc, and has not been erased. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Other than this TOC issue, the machine works fine... Thanks, Gareth
  6. Hi I've recently got an MZ-S1 off of ebay. The seller says it was working fine before shipping it and it does look in mint condition but when I try to read a disc it seems to be stalling and never starts playing it. It does recognize when there's no disc inside but nothing happens when I insert one, just a low whirring sound. Anybody can help? Thanks!
  7. I have an old minidisc player that is not working anymore, and a disc is inside of this player that I am not even sure how to take out. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated. After I take that disc out of that player I would have to copy it to my computer hard drive. I just found out that some MD players have USB outputs, and weirdly enough some players can only download through the USB ports, not upload, but most of them do both: uploading and downloading. Question: If I find a player that will be able to transfer data through USB port into the computer, what format i
  8. I just recently got a MZ-N505 second hand. And when I put a disc in it reads it, then starts playing, it even has the bar up top showing the levels. BUT there is no sound coming from the player. I know that the disc's are good because I have a MZ-NE410 and the discs play just fine on those. I dont have the remote for the MZ-N505 but I did try another remote I had. Does anyone have a clue as to what the issue might be that I can not get sound out of this player? I have also tried other headphones for the player as well.
  9. Hello All, I'm after a new deck to add to the collection! The two in my sights are the Sony JB-930 (or 940 which has MDLP) - this is a premium Sony deck and I'd be looking for one in black with the red "UK tuned" emblem. I think it also has a PS/2 port so a keyboard can be plugged in to aid MD titling. The Tascam MD-350 is a German made beast, which I understand was designed for long haul professional use in a rack - it also has metal gears inside to improve robustness. I really like the sound of the Tascam, it reminds me of a German premium car or something. The Sony thoug
  10. Hey all, Recently came across a NetMD MiniDisc player (MZ-NE410) and was having some trouble with it. While it does work and plays discs fine, it seems to have a problem staying on. Whenever even a bit of pressure is put on the lid of the player (whether there be a disc in it or not), the unit shuts off. I thought it was a problem with the battery compartment but after trying multiple batteries and different methods, this phenomenon only seems to only happen when putting pressure on the lid. Any ideas? Thanks.
  11. Hi everyone! I just found my old Sony MZ-R35 player after 15 years. It is in decent condition, but some of the controls on the unit do not work (volume, pause, mode, display). The remote that came with it can control Volume and Pause but not the Play Mode or the Display. Would the remote of later units - like the RM-MZR50 or RM-MZR55 - be able to achieve that? If you know other remotes that could control the Play Mode and the Display for the MZ-R35, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
  12. I have a MZ-RH1 unit , black, almost new, original box, in mint state, I used it for 12 hours in total. included are: 1GB HIMD MINIDISC AC charger 100-220V RM-MC38EL remote control with LCD and backlight USB CABLE SONY E0921 headset Rechargeable battery lip-4wm Manuals I could sell the unit at an interesting price and to somebody who takes good care of it. The MZ-RH1 is located in Spain, but could be sent to anywhere is needed. Nothing to hide. Here is a set of pictures taken yesterday, with different views
  13. I've noticed that in Australia many Sony minidisc players/recorders don't come with an AC power adapter. (lost,broken,whatever the reason). Does anyone know where I can get a 3v AC adapter? More specifically,one that has the correct plug size. (2.35mm). Though,is that the length or the hole size? Any help would be appreciated.
  14. hi i have a mini disc with EL Light display. The thing is that after six months without use when i tried to use it the display went dark, even with AC adapter. The display works (i can see only in deep darkness). Last time i used it, the display was perfect. And that is a device in NM conditions. Hope you can help me to fix this issue.
  15. TL;DR Warning, this is gonna be a fairly lengthy post. Hi all! I'm new to the MiniDisc scene and am super stoked to be part of this community! I am hoping to seek to some guidance from the more seasoned MiniDisc veterans as i have an interesting dilemma on my hands. Allow me to explain. I have purchased 2 separate eBay items, 1 was a used non-NetMD player with 33 MiniDiscs the other a used Sony MZ-S1 player. Included in the MDs i got in the first package were a serious of Sony Color MDs, using my version of Sonicstage which i was able to install on windows 10 via this post :
  16. Hello, I'm needing to replace the laser assembly in a MXD-D40 and it requires the KMS-262E or A. The KMS-260 is a lot easier to find. They look the same and just wondering if they are interchangeable? Is it just one is newer than the other? Thanks
  17. Hi Folks, Long time no post, busy with child rearing. :-) I do stop by to read up on new posts and topics. I ran across this video on YouTube yesterday, sorry to post if everyone has already seen it but it was good to see and I wanted to share with all. Cheers!
  18. So it's finally happened; both of my LIP-4WM gumstick batteries have died and will no longer hold charge. I see many of the LIP-4WM for sale on ebay and random places, but to my knowledge these are all original run Sony brand and are surely pretty old (bad news for lithium-ion batteries). Does anyone make replacements or equivalents for this battery? I dont care if its some tiny specialty place that charges $100 a pop, just would like to snag a couple of new ones
  19. Is it possible to clone a minidisc? MD > MD that retains album / song information? A professional deck maybe?
  20. Back in 1997, long before MP3 was anything more than a concept, I was serving in the Air Force and frequently deployed overseas. Some guys on the squadron introduced me to a strange format for making music portable. MiniDisc. I soon got to learn that those tough little discs survived the rough-and-tumble of life in a kit-bag. We each bought portable players, and would ‘pool’ our discs together to make little music libraries, would trade discs with one another, and would copy CD’s for one another back home. No matter where we were in the world, AA batteries were easy to obtain, and just a
  21. Hi everybody Yesterday I used my Minidisc recorder (MZ-RH910) for a concert: as always I checked everything it was working (just seeing the volume peaks on the display satisfies me) and put the Minidisc recorder in my jacket internal pocket. When the gig ended, I am almost positive, looking at the display (it was still very dark in the venue) the peaks were still pulsing and I pushed the STOP button making appear (at least I guess) on the display the usual phrase DATA SAVE - SYSTEM FILE WRITING (or something like that). After that very moment I stopped to interest myself about the recorder
  22. I'd like to know what models of MD hardware are currently sold. I guess Sony MZ-RH1? Same for blanks. I see a lot of Sony Neige blanks on sale. Anything else? Thank you so much!

  24. Hello, I have bought a mint MZ-E2 in my country that doesn’t sounds. It chargues, it displays the name of the songs and discs but it sounds metalic noises trough the headphones. I think the disc rotates well because it displays the names of tags. If I pass the songs I hear the laser movement but it don’t sound anithing, only a metalic noise 1 second. Any idea? I have entered in service mode but I don’t know if changing any parameter will repair the unit? Thanks!!
  25. Hello, I really don't want to learn how to sell on eBay just for these... hopefully someone on this forum wants them and will offer me a fair price for them. I will ship them insured at your expense and package them safely. Both have sat in the closet for years with no use. I tested both units and everything functions perfectly. Both come with working remotes and I have extra batteries for the MD3. Had to start a new user on the forum because my old one wasn't function for some reason... sorry. You can email me at mick_t@zoho.com for more info. Thanks Mick
