Recommended Posts


I have been selling the 17mm belt to many of the members of these forums, and thank you for the many comments and positive feedback.

Following some recent enquiries I have now added a number of additional sizes with more accurate information. These are a good quality belt with a 1.2mm square cross section (approx) and are available as follows....

17mm diameter (external measurement); 53mm length (approx)

20mm diameter; 63mm length

25mm diameter; 78mm length

28mm diameter; 88 mm length

30mm diameter; 94mm length

34mm diameter; 107mm length

The ebay ad for these Item ID: 193731685801

I do not unfortunately have details of which belt is required for each model, but many of you on this forum already have this info!!!

Hope that this is use to you

I reread the thread Charlie. Thanks for all that. Just to point out that you are perilously close to breaking a policy which we very painfully established (mainly because a certain individual spent his entire life attempting to trespass on our good natures), namely that self-posted eBay ads are not acceptable.

I think this is fine, as it stops just short of actually posting a link. But I wanted to post this publicly so that those lurking can understand that we take a dim view of those who seek to promote their business via the forum. I absolutely don't count you in that number - and that the end of the thread where it is all described is totally appropriate to mention it.

'nuff said

Kind regards

Hi Stephen and to everyone else

I in no way wish to promote what I have - just to answer the many members who have asked me about the internal or external diameter measurements and what else i have available

That was the only reason for my post

I wish you all well, and if I have caused offence then i will withdraw my posts immediately

MDM7 drive load belt: 17mm dia (53mm circumference) by 0.8mmx0.8mm square.

Charlie at Linx Audio had some of this size made especially for us. I've just fitted one to my MDS-E12 and it works perfectly. It matches the dimensions of the original (good) one I removed to try the new one.

See his eBay shop listing here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/17mm-Internal-Diameter-53mm-Length-0-8mm-Square-Cross-section-Rubber-Drive-Belt/193976337464?hash=item2d29e40438:g:1xoAAOSwaT5gVMlR

He's a UK seller but he'll ship worldwide.

No relation other than a customer.

Thanks for the info of the nasty little belt!

Maybe a cheap solution for the belt. My wife had somewhere in her hobby room a "Bracelet Pack" with many little "belts". I have mount one in my MDS-E12 and it works. How long it last I don't know, but it is very cheap. I have sticked a little plastic bag with 10 spare "belts" in the recorder.

(I try to load a picture of the bag with "belts"...)
