You'll need the Sony software. Did you save them as PCM WAV files? If so, this Sony, can process them.

1) Make sure the battery is all charged up.

2) Live with it. Seriously. It will cost you $100+ to replace the display.

The display dims except for when you are doing something with it to save power - I hope this is your situation. If it is always dim and going out this is another problem alltogether.

Hi iown a sony- mds je 330, how can i transfer from md to computer?

Sony has a free program called Sonic Solutions. It stinks to high hell. But it is free.

I strongly suggest you either play the MDs into your computer via the LINE IN, or buy a Behringer UCA202 USB Audio Interface from Amazon for $30 and input the audio digitally via the USB.

That's how I do it.

Hello,my name is Norman,i have a Sony MZ-N1,it plays fine but i have problems recording,the recording red light goes off after a few minutes and stops recording.The display then show TOC Edit flashing and...

I'm thinking you are recording longer than the battery can support the deck for power. Sony always said if you are going to record a long time you need to plug it in. Possibly your battery is old? Try it using the power brick plugged in does it still do this?
The TOC is the recorder trying to write to the disc. The recorder saves to memory and then writes to disc before ejecting the disc. It also could be a bad disc or dirt on the heads or a number of other things.

HI, got tons of MDs with music I want to transfer to PC/CD/DVD. What's the best/cheapest/easiest - preferably not real-time transfer, like cassette, tedious. MD is digital, so why is it proving so damn...

Your problem is that MiniDisc is only a one-way street. Music can be copied from another device or (with a Net MiniDisc) digitally transferred from a host pc onto the MD unit, but not the other way around. Confusion arises because in older versions of Sony SonicStage, music could be checked in and out of the device. When checking out, a copy was made onto MD along with a digital rights licence. The original stayed on the host pc and could only be checked out on three additional devices at any one time. When checking music back in, the device simply erased the digital copy on the MD and transferred the licence data back into the host pc, so that one of the four possible copies was restored and made available for further check-outs. Later SonicStage software abandoned this clumsy "check-in, check-out" process but tracks downloaded onto an MD under the old process could not even be erased from an MD until checked back in again.

There is no hack or modification for this; the hardware and firmware simply is not provided in the MiniDisc system design to allow it.

A later and brief-lived development of the system was the Hi MiniDisc (Hi-MD). This does allow the user to upload material recorded onto the device to a host pc, but still does not allow you to upload material from pre-recorded sources or from your old collection. This is because uploads are possible only when using a dedicated 1GB Hi-MD, when the system uses older legacy MD's it uses different processing circuitry with all the old limitations.

Your only option is analogue transfer in real time. You can improve the quality if you are able to use the optical transfer provided on some models, you'll also find that some models allow you to bypass the output volume circuitry on the headphone jack by setting it to line output. But there is no way to speed up the transfers, sorry.

I hope that you have found my posting to be of use, you may also wish to search my other MiniDisc answers for additional information which you might find to be of further assistance to you. All that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

I can not transfer mysong from my net md walkman/mzn707 to my pc

You can't do this digitally, it's a fundamental hardware restriction in the the NetMD specification and is to prevent music piracy. Unfortunately it also catches anyone who has used the machine to record non-copyrighted material.

The only way that you can transfer the music is via an analogue audio patch lead. You can improve the quality of the analogue output though by setting the headphone output to line output. The MZ-N707 lacks this as standard but the circuitry is present and can be accessed by rebooting the machine as an MZ-N910 (see below).

Note that there is no way around this restriction: all NetMD players/recorders completely lack the hardware needed to make digital uploads to other devices so there is no hack or firmware mod to overcome this issue.

The later (and far more expensive) HiMD machines do not have this restriction but you still cannot use them to upload material recorded on a regular MD to other devices. They will only upload from a HiMD.

I hope that you have found my posting to be of use and ask in return only that you remember to rate my answer.

Some discs show DISC ERR and won't play

You can try using a minidisc cleaning cartridge, but in my experience you probably have an MZ-R900 with a worn out read/record head cradle. As you say, it is a bit long in the tooth now and they don't last forever. Unfortunately you cannot get the spares for your model any more and replacing the head is not easy even if you could.

It's not all doom and gloom though; there are plenty of good cheap and even barely used MD players out there and I've had a number of free ones from my local FreeCycle group. The death of your current unit offers you the chance to get something like the fabulous MZ-N910 which is a joy to use and is the top of the line model if you exclude the rare and expensive Hi-MD players. Any Sony recorders/players you see with an N in the name are NET MiniDiscs and it means that you can upload to your player from your computer very quickly by transferring music digitally.

Expect an MZ-N910 with all accessories to cost up to around £40 and any non NET portable units should be free to £10. You can still buy spare gumstick batteries for them if need be from places like if you're in the UK and if you get a unit with the external AA battery accessory then you'll have no need to worry about where to recharge your MD unit.

If you're in the UK and unable to get a replacement player yourself then I may still have a boxed and barely used MZ-R501 which I might be able to send you. I'd have to check with my wife first but as she's now onto her third flash drive Sony Walkman I don't think she ever plans to use it again! It would be free including postage but I'd ask you to make a donation equivalent to at least the postage costs to Macmillan Cancer Support. If you want to go ahead post a comment and I'll send you a suitable email address to contact me on.

Need operating manual for sony model # net md walkman mz-s1

The following web address claims to provide a free download of the manual which you require. I haven't downloaded and examined it myself though as I'm sure that you're more than capable of doing that for yourself.

Please return the favour by rating my answer, or if the address turns out to be unhelpful then report back with a comment and I'll try again.

Sony Net MD Walkman MZ-NF810

You can download SonicStage CP v4.3 from Sony at the address given below.

In case you need it, the second address is a user manual for the player itself.

Personally, I've always found SonicStage to be buggy and annoying to use so for the last few years I've used RealPlayer to do the same job as it has plugins to support file transfers to NET MD units and seems to operate faster and certainly more smoothly.

SonicStage CP 4.3
