Sony MDS JE-320 not recording

My Sony MDS JE-320 decided to stop recording. It works otherwise; actually everything else works. It even show the red REC message while recording and it goes trough the entire proccessbut...at the end when the TOC finnishes blinking, it shows me "blank disk" or empty.
I thought these things either work or don't so I am totally puzelled of what can be wrong. It was not exposed to extreme temperatures, no shock and no abuse of any kind.
please, if anyone can give a helping ideea, write me.
Regards
Frank

This is a common problem with the overwrite head on these units. There is a two wire connection going to it which fails after a couple of years of service. Or for some reason the overwrite head does not make contact to the MD disk surface, it is suppose to when recoding or writing the TOC.
This overwrite head assembly is very very delicate, provided you feel comfortable to work on it you can probably fix it. Or find a local electronics technician to help you with that.

Do some reading on the Minidisc Forum


Hope this helps

Hi iown a sony- mds je 330, how can i transfer from md to computer?


Sony has a free program called Sonic Solutions. It stinks to high hell. But it is free.

I strongly suggest you either play the MDs into your computer via the LINE IN, or buy a Behringer UCA202 USB Audio Interface from Amazon for $30 and input the audio digitally via the USB.

That's how I do it.

Try another recording to eliminate the media as the cause.

Find the two audio OUTs (Left and Right) on the player and plug them into the Left and Right Audio IN's of any available input on the amplifier. It sounds like you're either missing one of the channels or you have them plugged into different inputs.

When you get done recording, do you wait until the "TOC" light stops flashing? If you cut off power before the Table Of Contents is written, then it can't find all your music. Even if you eject, it should still flash a little red TOC or UPDATE before it spits the disc out. Check for that. okay?
