Re: Hi MD recording

There is no way to digitally transfer the recordings back to another computer, it's an anti-piracy measure.

The only way to transfer the recordings is by connecting a lead from the headphone socket on the player to the microphone socket on your computer. Your Hi-MD player may have a menu item which allows you to improve the transfer quality by converting the headphone signal to "line output". This transfers at maximum volume and totally bypasses a lot of the players circuitry. If there is no line output option then set the volume to maximum and the sound processing to neutral.

Re: Hi MD recording

Check out your sharing options on windows media player, DRM can watermark the tracks and make them unusable by other users, or even yourself.
Default is with copy protection, lookmin tools>options>rip music. Almost all audio programs have some version of this available, and only one fair use copy can be made.

I have a MD Recorder (MZ-R501),can i use Hi MD disc to record ?

You can, but it will just be a very expensive regular disc. Only a HI MD recorder can use the special HI MD feature.
But you won't hurt the disc or the recorder if you use it.

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.

Issues downloading audio files from Sony minidisc to my computer

You can't. You can only transfer digital files from your pc to your Minidisc player., it's a one way street. there's no hack for it either as it's a basic hardware issue within the player itself.

If you want to download from the player to the pc you'll have to connect the audio output to your pc and record it the old-fashioned way which loses a bit of quality. All Minidisc compliant players were like this until the advent of the Hi MD format which succeeded the Net MD's as an anti-piracy measure.

Problem of minidisk can't show at my pc

this is to scope_gurung, in my experience, what i did was i downloaded the song from a standard CD walkman. I first wrote all the song in order on a sheet of paper then i connected a standard stereo jack to both my MD and to my standard CD player. You have to first check if your MD is detecting the CD player in its screen and if it does, press play on the CD player and pause it and as for your MD, press record and pause it too then >>>>after you have done all of these, you have to release the pause on both palyers at the same time>>>>> and whoala !!!! your MD is already recording..... You can edit your recordings later as it is playing by using your menu button. I hope i was of help. Good Day !!!!

Write protection

Did you record the material using SonicStage or a USB connection? If you did, you will have to erase this material using the same program. You won't be able to do it with the MD.
