Getting MD data off MZ-N707

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

Hello I have a Sony MZ-N707 I record using a Sony ECM 907 mic, I use a Macbook pro and wish to download my recording from Minidisc to the Macbook , the 707 minidisc has an earpiece output and a lead with a usb output , when I connect to the Macbook the 707 is not coming up as detected . Is there an app or a way I can do this or are the technologies un-adaptable ? thank you

Not with the 707.

To get it off digitally you would need either:

a. A (full size) deck with optical out or
b. An MZ-RH1 (or MZ-M200, same thing).

Sorry but that's just the way life is.

Thank you sfbp for your reply , At least a crumb of hope there as I do have a full size deck with an optical out (I think)  I will get it out of storage.

Would the optical lead needed have a particular input connector to plug into the Macbook pro ? 

Thanks in advance for your time

sorry you will still need to find a sound card with optical in. I don't *think* that's the case for the Mac. You would need a sound DAW like a MOTU or something similar (half a dozen different manufacturers) to get the S/PDIF signal into the Macbook, unless I've missed something.

In the PC world a $10 sound card will do the job. Maybe you need to beg, borrow or steal a PC to plug a sound card (Terratec is nice) into the bus.
