    When I record anything from my computer or from the line, I can't play it; and after I turn off my minidisc and I turn it on again, the "BLANK" message appears.

Hi- it sounds like the record head is bent or needs adjustment. I do repairs on Sony minidiscs, so you may contact me at: masondixon@netzero.com for help.

Erasing an MD after "TR Protect" has been set.


I figured it out!! Initialize! Connect your MZ-N505 to a PC with the USB port. You'll need a USB A to mini B cable.Using the SonicStage software from Sony Support. You can then click the Transfer tab at the top of the screen. Select NetMD. All the current tracks on the disc should appear in the right hand window. At the bottom right of that window click Device/Media info. A dialog should pop up allowing you to Initalize (erase) the disc. Whew! I also bought a bunch of used Mini Discs that I wanted to record over. I ran into the same "TRProtect" message. Now I can use all these discs! Hope this helps. Have fun.
