Re: Disk won't fit

There is only one Minidisc Data format and it was discontinued over 10 years ago. Optical Miinidiscs are not not going to fit into a 90 mm floppy disc drive.

What is tr protect, and how do I disable it on my sonywalkman mz n910?

It is possible that the disk was recorded on another recorder using
NetMD in SonicStage. Download SonicStage and edit/ erase your disk from within the program. Does your N910 have a USB port??

Cds won't play

OK, your discription of your problem is rather vague.

Do they try to play but skip or make god awful noises? Or do you have no audio at all?

If they are skipping check to make sure there are no smudges on the underside of the CD. If so clean them with a soft cloth,

Sometimes severe scratches can cas the same problem. You can buff out some scratched using tooth paste or you can by a scratch remover that they sell in stores (it is a gadget that will clean and buff out some scratches available in many stores).

If you have any of the label missing then this is a worse issue. It is actually the top of a CD that you need to be most careful about scratching because if you remove the laquer that protects the silver layer of the CD it will remove part of the silver with it along with any audio or data that is on it. There is no repair for this.

If you have ruled out a damaged or dirty CD then be sure you are not trying to play a CD that has data files intended for computers on a player that cannot open them. The best way to do this is to check the CD on a computer and open the drive folder and view the contents of the disk. Files such as MP3, WAV, WMA and others will not play on a standard CD player. If the files are CDA that is a standard audio CD formatting. So next see if the disk plays on the computer.

If the CD plays on a computer then return to the CD player and attemp playing again. Make sure that the player recognizes the CD being in the tray. Also, verify, if you can that the CD is spinning within the player when you play. If the CD is not spinning or the player does not recognize rge disk try a disk you know to be undamaged.

If you still have problems then you will have to have your player repaired or replace it.

Help with a slick mp3

Connect your MP3 Pod to your computer via a USB Cable and once it gets recognized then go to the new drive detected in your computer and right click on it and select the "Format" option and select "Quick Format" and try to format.. If it says that "Format could not be completed" then try changing the filesystem and again formatting, If problem persists then it means that your hard disk in the player is corrupted..

I have a sony md walkman mz-nh 600 i have lost the disk it came with from new can i buy or download one as i want to transfer my music to my pc

Yes, you can buy a new HiMD disk from a Sony supplier or from numerous places on the net. No, you cannot download one, as technology has not yet reached the point of being able to download physical matter.

Transfer Mini disk music to a PC

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.

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.

About the charging - you have to plug it in and then turn it on to make it charge. The user manual comes on a small disk with the device. It is extremely unhelpful, as it contains almost the same info as the package insert for quickstarting. The only thing that was useful in the manual was this : Support and Service
Please call 1-818-767-2843 ext 117 for any questions regarding this unit.
