1) The manual is available for free from Sony.

It means you are trying to record a digital file ... and the SCMS Copy System will not allow you to make a digital copy of a digital original. It has to do with copyright law.

Just record it via the analog input. You can, in fact, make a digital copy of an analog file, if you wish.

Is the tape write-protected? If so, remove the protection.

    Oddly enough, minidiscs do not use tape.

Mini disk player JES510 want to record some midi tracks using the optical link. keeps saying din unlock & then if try says cannot record. How can I overcome this? Help appreciated.


Like most home recorders the minidisc will not let you make digital copies of a digital original. The idea is to prevent piracy of copyrighted material.

Unfortunately, that includes digital tracks you yourself made,

Just go through the analog inputs. It will sound fine.

PS - professional minidisc recorders will let you record digitally, but they are expensive.

My mini disc player is displaying din unlock c71 i cannot record


You have probably chosen a source which is not active, there are other reasons but usually your selector switch is set to a dead input with nothing to record from.

Hi have an mds-je500 minidisk player that stopped accepting disks, worked perfect one minute, says load error next each time i try to load, then says eject even though disk doesn't go all the way in....


The small limit switch for the disc in position typically goes bad on about 40% of all Sony Minidisc recorders. It is a $5 part, but will probably cost you $35 to get it installed.

I'm trying to record on to my mini disc recorded (sony MDS JB940) and it's flashing Din Unlock c71. how can i solve this problem?


"The definiton in the manual suggests you are trying to record a digital bitstream that is either dead or incompatible with the recorder."

That is completely wrong. DIN UNLOCK means what the first poster said - that you are trying to make a digital copy of a digital copy. You cannot (for legal reasons). Record via analog.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TRY TO CLEAN YOUR LENS WITH ALCOHOL AND A Q-TIP. It has nothing whatsoever to do with your problem and you may well damage or destroy the lens or the transport.

Din Unlock - Unable to record


You must have the unit switched to "DIGITAL" input - switch it to "ANALOG" and record that way. The "DIN UNLOCK" is when you have the lack of a proper digital signal, or a digital signal with copy protection, like you cannot make a digital copy of a digital Minidisc, etc...Does that make sense? Let me know if the "Analog" setting works for you. Good luck.

This means that you are trying to record from the Digital Input, if you want to record from an analogue input do the following:
