Question about Sony Net MD Walkman MZ-N505

1 Answer

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

I purchased a small lot of Mini Discs and when I tried to erase a few of them (by pushing the jog wheel to "Erase") ..All I get is "TRProtect" which I assume means Track Protect. This has nothing to do with the white tab on the disc....Apparently it is something chosen after he/she made the discs....How do I overide or cancel TR Protect so I can erase the whole disc for reuse?????

    Thanks, I had to reinstall windows on my PC along with sonicstage and all of the checked out info was lost, so it won't let you check it back in, it thinks that you are trying to check the music back in to a different PC, i.e. using the MD to transfer digital files. Initializing is the work around.

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.

How do I re reord on mini disc I have aiwa mini hifi md-200 hope you can help


Not clear what your problem is.

My guess is that you are trying to record on a pre-recorded minidisc. You cannot.

Buy some blank discs. You can record and re-record to your heart's content.

My sony md player wont read HI mini discs


The 480 is not designed to read HI MDs. If I remember right, it can read them as regular discs.

You can always purchase a HI-MD recorder, if that is important to you.

Hi, can you please how i can delete the contents of a minidisc? I have tried to use the edit/delete function on the player but it says TrPROTECT. I have checked the minidisc and its not on protect mode.


Page 121 of the Manual states that on the Net MD you cannot delete tracks, groups or the entire disc contents.

In other words you need to have it connected to your PC to Add & Remove tracks.


Please leave feedback

Cheers

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.

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.
