Question about MiniDisc Players

Philips Wireless Music Center wacs7000

I am trying to download audio cds onto the hard drive, no problem. I then go into the album list and it is there. However, when I unplug the unit and then later go back into it my hard drive folder is empty. What am I doing wrong? Surely this should not happen, what if I get a power cur, I would lose all my tracks. Please can you help I am desperate.
Many thanks,
Carol xx.

Well I think thats the probem about this pc's they can't copy a cd file to the pc if its an original, but if copying the files to a new cd it will. maybe it has a copyright. for the pc. well I tried nero to change the file, cuz' sometimes the file is a different format.
or you may use Itunes from apple to download them into your HD. then try to reformat them using nero. ( if nero will)
pls. dont rate me badly. );

No vocals on recorded disc


You need to check your setup's recording volume and interface. You did not mention if you are trying to record from RCA or digital inputs.

It sounds like your recording level is not set up to catch all of the music. I'd love to buy a unit which cuts all of the whiney vocals from good trance music it is very hard to do with all of the layers of recording.

hi there is nothing to do by yourself. you need to take your md player to the next authorized service. seems the optical device that reads the discs has worn out, compareable to turntables you need to change the `needle` ;)

I record music on Tascam dp2. Why can't I hear my music in all spks. on 5.1 surr. dvd player? I can hear other cds in all 5 spks.


When u record music, its important that the background music be at -7db and the vocals should bounce the level meters to just over 0 db,also if u use a mixing console to add more instruments to the mix, the mixed output of the added content MUST BE NO MORE THAN -7db in order to maintain balanced music output to all channels.

Recorder reads the disks fine, but as soon as you hit play, all you get from the output is loud static. Please advise.


Similar to regular CDs, the information/music is stored as a digital signal. The statis you are hearing is the digital information directly. The D-A converter circuit (Digital to Analogue) is not functioning correctly. This is a relatively common failure of the D-A IC and is usually easily repaired. Please see an Authorized Sony repair center for assistance.

If I want to record let's say someone speaking for 90 min and burn 2 cd's , one 60min and the other 30 min from the one 90min recording , each one divided into tracks , how would I do this ?


If you want to burn a CD you have to make a master. For 2 cd's you have to make 2 masters, one for each recording.
The best way to handle this is to "create a song" for each speech giver and give each a name.This is because you can make only one master copy of a song before burning a Cd.

But another way is to :
1. Make a master of the first speech giver (who is on one track) and record to the Cd.
2. Make a new master of the second speech giver (on the other track) and record to Cd.
As long as you don't mind, the second mastering will overwrite the first one that you did, but then you already have burned a copy of that Cd!

HI, got tons of MDs with music I want to transfer to PC/CD/DVD. What's the best/cheapest/easiest - preferably not real-time transfer, like cassette, tedious. MD is digital, so why is it proving so damn...


Your problem is that MiniDisc is only a one-way street. Music can be copied from another device or (with a Net MiniDisc) digitally transferred from a host pc onto the MD unit, but not the other way around. Confusion arises because in older versions of Sony SonicStage, music could be checked in and out of the device. When checking out, a copy was made onto MD along with a digital rights licence. The original stayed on the host pc and could only be checked out on three additional devices at any one time. When checking music back in, the device simply erased the digital copy on the MD and transferred the licence data back into the host pc, so that one of the four possible copies was restored and made available for further check-outs. Later SonicStage software abandoned this clumsy "check-in, check-out" process but tracks downloaded onto an MD under the old process could not even be erased from an MD until checked back in again.

There is no hack or modification for this; the hardware and firmware simply is not provided in the MiniDisc system design to allow it.

A later and brief-lived development of the system was the Hi MiniDisc (Hi-MD). This does allow the user to upload material recorded onto the device to a host pc, but still does not allow you to upload material from pre-recorded sources or from your old collection. This is because uploads are possible only when using a dedicated 1GB Hi-MD, when the system uses older legacy MD's it uses different processing circuitry with all the old limitations.

Your only option is analogue transfer in real time. You can improve the quality if you are able to use the optical transfer provided on some models, you'll also find that some models allow you to bypass the output volume circuitry on the headphone jack by setting it to line output. But there is no way to speed up the transfers, sorry.

I hope that you have found my posting to be of use, you may also wish to search my other MiniDisc answers for additional information which you might find to be of further assistance to you. All that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

How do you load songs on the tascam MP-GT1? does anyone know cause it would be much appreciated thnx


Connect the unit to your computer with the USB. It will show up as an external hard drive. Click on the unit from the menu and you will see 3 folders on the menu. Drag any mp3 music file from your computer to the "Music" folder on the unit. The problem you may run into however is that itunes music are copy righted and many songs on your computer may be mp4. You may need to rip directely from the cd's onto the computer, or even burn to a disc and then rip them back.

I have a sony mini disc deck and I want to try and get my laptop to accept the audio, to enable me to move it into itunes. Please help!!


What Minidisc player do you have? Does it have a USB connection or just audio connections? The Sony Sonic Stage software should allow you to store the Minidisc music on your laptop - you might have to make a CD of it first, THEN covert the CD into iTunes.
