Question about Sony Hi-MD Walkman MZ-DH10P Personal MiniDisc Player

1 Answer

Media not detected

We have recorded voice tracks on the disc. Music transfer does not recognize the device. We have been through the troubleshooting page of the manual and tried various corrections. Is this problem common?

Re: media not detected

According to this manual, it only will download MP3s to your model. It won't recognize the device for other music transfer. Seems a rather major limitation, but that's it. Sorry to give you bad news.

I think you are screwed, but check the Owners Manual

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

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.

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:

I hope this helps.

Transfer music from Mini Disk back to Computer

Unfortunately, there is no way to transfer music from a sony mini-disc player to a computer other than playing it through your sound card and recording it. Sony specifically disabled this ability to dissuade consumers from transferring music from one person to another, and this is one of the reasons that Mini Disc Players did not take off.

Hi MD recording

check out your sharing options on windows media player, DRM can watermark the tracks and make them unusable by other users, or even yourself.
Default is with copy protection, lookmin tools>options>rip music. Almost all audio programs have some version of this available, and only one fair use copy can be made.
