Erasing a used minidisc w/out software

I use minidiscs to record live music and events, then transfer to my mac and reuse the discs.  I've been told you can record over and over with no loss of quality. But How can I erase them?  I don't have a PC and don't use the software, my model is a mz-n707 and it auto-begins to record at the end of the disc.  I want to tape over used time... is there a way?  My old unit did it just by pressing record.

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: www.minidisc.org

I hope this helps.

I have a Sony MZ-M200. I want to transfer live recordings that I have made of my concerts on MD to CD. I can load the recordings into the computer. How do I then burn them onto a blank CD?


You would have to use the Sony MiniDisc software to burn them as a standard CD. A better solution is to buy an actual stand-alone stereo "CD Recorder" and go from the MiniDisc player to the CD Recorder and it will record directly, including track marks if you make it a digital dub! Check into getting a Phillips audio CD recorder, and Sony still makes a stand alone CD recorder as well.

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.

It isn't possible to transfer your music from a minidisc to a computer...Sony made it so you can only transfer from a computer to the minidisc...Very bad engineering, but that is the bad news...

I recorded analog music on md.now how can i transfer analog music to pc and chanege it to digital music on memory of pc.


Your analogue music will have been recorded digitally by your machine.

Digital transfers are only possible from the host pc/Mac to the player and not the other way around.

But you can transfer the audio signal by connecting the headphone output to the Mac audio input; look into the Minidisc player menu and you can set the headphone socket to "line" which bypasses the volume control circuits for better quality, your computer will then re-convert the analogue input into a digital signal with a small loss of quality.

You can't. it's an anti piracy measure built in at the hardware level.

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.
