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.

My Sony MD player, the MDS JA555ES works fine but i got issues with the display. Some parts of the display light up for 50%. e.g. when i hit play the pause and record indicator as well as the music...


I hate to be the one who tells you, but is not fixable. The display might be replaceable, but I can't tell if the problem is with the display or the thing inside that puts info on the display.

Here is the user's manual and the service manual http://www.minidisc.org/part_Sony_MDS-JA555ES.html

It's a great machine, even if it doesn't have MDLP.

Try to memorize the buttons.

I cannot figure out what you want. Pleasae use better English.

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.

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.
