Question about Sony Net MD Walkman MZ-N707 Recorder

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 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.

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.

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.

Issues downloading audio files from Sony minidisc to my computer


You can't. You can only transfer digital files from your pc to your Minidisc player., it's a one way street. there's no hack for it either as it's a basic hardware issue within the player itself.

If you want to download from the player to the pc you'll have to connect the audio output to your pc and record it the old-fashioned way which loses a bit of quality. All Minidisc compliant players were like this until the advent of the Hi MD format which succeeded the Net MD's as an anti-piracy measure.

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.
