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.

Restart the computer, press F9 during startup. In some PC's, it is the F4 key. This activates the hidden partition where your factory settings is saved.

Recorded mini discs no sound on playback


They should both have the same standard format, but my best guess is you may have recorded one MD in one of the sony longer formats which the Tecnics can't read. The normal MD Decks may not have the old sony extended paly format and even some of the Sony high end decks don't have all of the formats. Sony tried several says to give more recording timje on a disc before migrating to the HiMN standard as an example.

What is tr protect, and how do I disable it on my sonywalkman mz n910?


It is possible that the disk was recorded on another recorder using
NetMD in SonicStage. Download SonicStage and edit/ erase your disk from within the program. Does your N910 have a USB port??

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.

My MD-MS702 gave me very good service. Unfortunately it was not used for five to six years and now when i switch it on after full battery charging I get TOC error on all of my recorded discs. SOS, as I am...


Hi,

According to you You don't have use your disk play for a huge time, so that it may damaged or lens became dirty.

You can clear the lens with lens cleaner (clear the optical head).

check the battery was properly charged or working.

Check the disk moved properly.

To prevent the disk erase or damage slide the accidental erase prevention tab.

You can show it to the Technician.

Jog wheel on my 800i doesnt work properly, will only let me scroll up


most ericsson phone with jog wheels have the same issue, i had a k750i before using 800i and i had to deal with it before getting it repaired, a work around i did was to open the unit up, look for the contacts of the wheel, and clean it with a pencil eraser. it may come back in a few months, if in case this did not do, replacing the scroll wheel set and its contacts will be replaced too. best if you go to an ericsson authorized repair center if you want to replace the parts.

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.

My jogging stroller shakes


Well, i'm not positive in this, seeing how I never had kids, but while jogging are you pushing down harder on the stroller? or you could look for smaller wheels to put it on, but then again you might have'ft to bend over to do it, and if the handle which you push is tall that has to do with force viberating the stroller
