Question about Sony ECM-DM5P Consumer Microphone

1 Answer

Recording issues I'm not sure what the problem is, but whenever the mic is plugged into a MD player to record, it doesn't pick up any sound. When plugged into a laptop, however, it does, and the line-in socket on the MD player definitely works as well, so the isssue only arises when trying to record directly onto the recorder rather than through a computer.

My first guess would be that the minidisc player does not provide enough power for the mic. I believe Sony makes an external battery pack to compensate for these problems. Hope this helps!

Sennheiser md 42 microphone not being picked up on camcorder help please.


This would require a special cable to work. The mic is MONOAURAL with BALANCED output and the camera is STEREO input. This means a special cable is needed and you would probably have to make it yourself as I haven't seen one on the market.Pin 2 of the XLR of the mic would go to BOTH the tip and ring of the plug into the camera. Both pins 1 and 3 of the XLR at the mic would tie to the sleeve of the plug to the camera. If you tried an XLR to 1/8 adapter, no audio would be heard other than from the buillt in mic.

I can call out on Google.com but the person cannot hear me. I can hear them. How do I fix my mich for them to hear me.


Open the sound app in the Control Panel, make sure that the mic is seen under Recording tab and that the sound is all the way up. You can also double-click the Speaker icon in the Notification area and see if the mic is muted.

Whenever i plug in both the headphone and the mic, it randomly disconnects my headset speakers and doesnt even pick up my mic. When i plug in just the headphone i hear sounds but it doesnt pick up mic....


You have to firstly test your head phones on another computer.... If it works in another computer than firstly update your anti virus program and then re install your drivers.... If it does not solve the problem you can re plug the cable of sound card on mother board... If problem does not solved than your sound card might have problem.

My MD 421 suddenly has no high end. Sounds muffled and distorts when I yell into it.


Check the cable. It maybe damaged. Check your phantom power. If your going to yell into the mic...Turn the input gain down to avoid initial distortion. Not sure of your recording setup, but everything in the chain input to output is key.
You can probably assume the mic to be damaged if these things dont check out.

Static noise when playing back recording, sounds like the wind


This camera has a single Mic - make sure your finger isn't over it though -- try making a recording in a closed room - no wind noise - is there still static ??
Go through settings and see what choices there are -- like outdoor , indoor . close to subject etc.
My CAM had a close up and background button - which was a sensitivity setting - and the background setting picked up EVERY sound from miles around and filled the tape with noise. The close up setting only picked up sound from bout 2 - 3 meters.
Do you also have an external plug for a Mic ? this would also check whether it's the camera mic or recording that is at fault ??

I have a sony mz r500 minidisk. can i upload songs to computer, after I use it to record to minidisk?


I don't think this is designated a "Net-MD" - is it? If so, by using the proprietary software (Sonic Stage), recordings can be transferred from the computer via USB to the MD unit - and back again.

You won't be able to "transfer" using a USB cable if the recordings didn't originate via Sonic stage. But you can record them in real time using Cool Edit, Adobe Audition or Audacity (free proggie!). This is the only way of transferring music from any non-USB equipped MD unit, or any MD unit that made the recordings with a mic or using line-in.

Sony Net MD Walkman MZ-NF810


I've never bothered to use the software to transfer from MZ-NF810 to computer, partly because the software is not very good, but mainly because i think the whole thing about we not being allowed to download again from the computer due to legal issues are just so blah. Anyways, a guaranteed way to work the sound between the NF810 and the computer is to use play the NF810 and pipe it to the miniplug mic in on your computer and record on your computer (if you have a mac this could be SoundEdit.) To record from your computer, you plug in the optical cable on both the computer and the NF810 and play the sound on the computer and record on your NF810.
