SOURCE: Drums for MIDI track to not work

I haven't ever used this program but it sounds like you have your MIDI channel assigned to the wrong number. The default MIDI channel for drums is channel 10. Assign the track you are trying to play drums from to channel 10 in your program.

SOURCE: MDS-JE470 mini-disc capstan motor will not rotate disc and ejects

I have not had your problem myself, however, I am pretty sure the disc/s you are trying to play are not in the same readable format your MD player is, hence, the ejecting. I think you might have to either connect your player to a computer and re-initialise the system format/s and/or you may just have to (annoyingly) replace all of the MiniDiscs you have - which is not the best/rewarding way to go... quite irritating actually !!
Good luck to you though !!

SOURCE: Just bought a new car stereo (Sony XPlod

You have wired the amplifier turn-on wire to the power antenna wire by mistake.
The amplifier is turning off because it is losing the 12V signal in the power antenna wire when you go off the TUNER to CD.

Swap the blue wires, and you'll be set.

Realtek audio sound distorted when playing dvd


The dvd drive has a cable that goes to your sound card. The sound card plays the audio that comes out of the DVD drive. I would try a CD in the drive, alternately try another drive (if using a desktop computer), or try another sound card if you have one. Try another DVD player application (software), it could be a bad codec used for that player.

Ive just got a mini disk player and its comeing up toc error,can you help me please


Probably not. There are various reasons that TOC errors occur, some are fixable and others not, but Sharp MD units were really known to suffer from them for multiple reasons all at once. TOC means Table Of Contents; it's an index file on the disc which tells the host machine where everything on the disc is located and the TOC is modified whenever you edit a disc. Sometimes the file gets corrupted, but often the machine itself simply becomes unable to read the disc and as the TOC is the first thing it tries to read then you get a TOC error.

If you're lucky the TOC error is limited to a single minidisc; if this is the case then it's just one faulty disc and although there are ways to perform TOC cloning they usually involve hacking the host machine in various ways which may cause permanent damage. Unless the disc is important, just chuck it away and use a new one. If the fault is with the player then again, just chuck it into the nearest electronic waste recycling bin. Spares are not available, and as it's a Sharp, diagnosis will be difficult and the fault likely to return.

Many MD players are practically worthless these days so they're often available on FreeCycle and Freegle groups: Sony are the preferred choice by far, and are also the most commonly offered brand, but take whatever is on offer without complaint and worry about problems later; after all, they are free.

Toc error


TOC is short for "table of contents". It tells the memory what is on the disc and where...... Does this do this on all cd's?? If so, the disc drive motor is probably at fault. If it's one or two discs, it's probably a scratched or smudge near the center of the disc. CD's play from the inside out.....they start with the TOC.

TOC eror


The TOC error is the same error seen on computer disks, TOC is the table of content, this has to be read before the the unit will know the details of tracks etc......

If every disk inserted (not just burned discs) has this error, the laser is faulty or out of alignment. Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Toc error


toc error means "table of contents" error... means the player is unable to read the disc at all. May have a dirty focal lense to laser. clean gently with some windex on a cotton wool bud. It may be a faulty spindle motor that spins the disc. the bearings get worn or uneven and do not allow for disc reading to be successful. a check for this is a drop of oil to the bearing. It may then start to read discs, but will still require the motor to be replaced. . Check for the above... but if there is more required, take it to a Kenwood 'Agent... it may need a laser change
