How do I transfer music from Sony MZ N710 MD to my mac?

I have a Sony MZ N710 and would like to be able to transfer MiniDisc recordings onto my mac. I have a few programmes (such as itunes) that might already be what I need in order do this but I don't know where to start to find out.... I'm guessing I probably need to download something specifically for this...
Thankyou....

    I have a sony minidisc and want to transfer my music from the mini discs onto my i tunes. I have bought two gadgets recently that say they translate any music into digital format but I have not been able to get either to work. Any advise would be much appreciated as I have loads of mini discs and would love to hear them on my i pod.

You can't. it's an anti piracy measure built in at the hardware level.

Digital transfers are only possible from the host pc/Mac to the player and not the other way around. but you can transfer the audio signal by connecting the headphone output to the Mac audio input; look into the Minidisc player menu and you can set the headphone socket to "line" which bypasses the volume control circuits for better quality.

I need to transfer my song from my net md walkman 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. Note that in the menu for some NetMD units is an option to set the headphone output to "line". Using this setting for audio transfers bypasses the volume and equalizer circuits to give a better quality input to your pc. I only mention this as many MZ-N710's have been hacked to function as the top of the line MZ-N910, but if you see this option on your model there is no point in selecting it as it will do nothing: the headphone amp on the MZ-N710 lacks the circuit needed to use this function.

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.

Problem with transfering!


This is not a solution, but an explanation.
There is nothing wrong with your Net MD. This is a standard feature Sony included to protect copyrights. An extensive search of available soft produced only one non-commercial product which promisses such transfer http://winnmd.net/
No idea if it works, it's a shareware.

I recorded analog music on md.now how can i transfer analog music to pc and chanege it to digital music on memory of pc.


Your analogue music will have been recorded digitally by your machine.

Digital transfers are only possible from the host pc/Mac to the player and not the other way around.

But you can transfer the audio signal by connecting the headphone output to the Mac audio input; look into the Minidisc player menu and you can set the headphone socket to "line" which bypasses the volume control circuits for better quality, your computer will then re-convert the analogue input into a digital signal with a small loss of quality.
