Question about Sony Net MD Walkman MZ-N510 MiniDisc Recorder
You cannot do this.
All minidisc player/recorders (with the partial exception of the later and far rarer Hi-MD players) can only download material from the host computer. They are physically incapable at the basic hardware level of uploading material to the host computer even if it's material which you own the copyright for. As a result, there's not even a hack for it as the wiring just isn't there to do it.
The only way to transfer from the minidisc player to the host computer is by connecting a lead to the audio output socket (headphone socket) and to the audio input socket (microphone) on the host computer. There is some quality lost but if the computer has a good audio card and matching software the losses are minimal. You can improve the transfer quality by going into the menu of the MZ-N510 and setting the output socket to "line". This bypasses the volume controls completely giving a purer signal path.
The failures you're experiencing are often due to discs being corrupted by either magnets or by being left in a hot car or bag but more often just due to the anti-friction coatings within the disc casing. The more expensive blank discs didn't necessarily offer a better recording quality but the discs themselves generally last far longer.
