Problem recording with SJ-MR220

I am having trouble recording with the SJ-MR220. I set it up to record in the normal manner and the levels and time indicate that it is recording, I then stop it and it says it is writing the disc but when I go to playback the disc is blank. I am recording out of a dj mixer using a stereo Y cable into the line input. I monitor it whilst it is recording and it seems to be going through fine and it always looks like it has recorded and written the disc. I have never had this problem with any other MD recorder. A friend gave me this unit so it is second hand but I don't think it has had any use before. I do have the manuals but I can see nothing from them that I am doing wrong. Please help!

Is there ANY software available that will allow me to transfer my minidisc recordings to my iMac ?


No. Net MD's are physically incapable of digitally uploading their content to external devices. Digital transfers are a one-way street into the player: the original recording remains on the host pc and a copy is transferred onto the player.

There is no hack, no software and nothing else which will allow digital uploads as the hardware just isn't there to start with. The only way to transfer recordings is to record them from the headphone socket (set volume to maximum and turn digital signal processing off, or better still use the menu selection to set the headphone socket to LINE output).

To do this you just need a standard male to male headphone lead.

STEPS TO FINALIZE RECORDING, I HAVE A CDR 765/17 RECORDS REAL WELL BUT HOW DO I FINALIZE IT TO BE ABLE TO PLAY THE CD ON OTHER MACHINES DEACON_99@HOTMAIL.COM I'M DEACON ANDERSON


Please do the recording in the normal format so that you can play in any player. If you compress it there is every reason that it could not be read in some machines.

THE COMPUTER DOES NOT IDENTIFY THE DEVICE


You cannot do this.
All minidisc player/recorders (with the partial exception of the later and far rarer Hi-MD players) can only download material from the host computer. They are physically incapable at the basic hardware level of uploading material to the host computer even if it's material which you own the copyright for. As a result, there's not even a hack for it as the wiring just isn't there to do it.

The only way to transfer from the minidisc player to the host computer is by connecting a lead to the audio output socket (headphone socket) and to the audio input socket (microphone) on the host computer. There is some quality lost but if the computer has a good audio card and matching software the losses are minimal. You can improve the transfer quality by going into the menu of the MZ-N510 and setting the output socket to "line". This bypasses the volume controls completely giving a purer signal path.

I have a sony mz r500 minidisk. can i upload songs to computer, after I use it to record to minidisk?


I don't think this is designated a "Net-MD" - is it? If so, by using the proprietary software (Sonic Stage), recordings can be transferred from the computer via USB to the MD unit - and back again.

You won't be able to "transfer" using a USB cable if the recordings didn't originate via Sonic stage. But you can record them in real time using Cool Edit, Adobe Audition or Audacity (free proggie!). This is the only way of transferring music from any non-USB equipped MD unit, or any MD unit that made the recordings with a mic or using line-in.

Erasing a used minidisc w/out software


While holding down the Pause button, push Record. The display should blink the disc icon and REC. Then push the <<| until the display shows 001. Then push the pause button to start recording. This will start it from the beginning. You can use this feature to start recording at the beginning of any track you choose. You can download a manual for this machine at: www.minidisc.org

I hope this helps.
