Re: Sony MXD-D5C (5CDs and MDLP) Deck's PROBLEM
I am not very sure about the compatibility but If the connection cords are matching you can go forward to try this out. Remove the short inthenew unit before you install using a good anti static soldering iron. Usually there will be a compatabily list on the new spare for the older models but if mountings and pins seems Ok you can go forward and replace provided there is no alternative to get the original. Nowadays due to high cost and low quality replacement parts, it becomes necessary to review ourselves to think if buying a new DVD will be cheaper with a warranty. Just my thought. Wish you do it right. Good day

These units are often on ebay for cheap, there are several nearly identical CD->MD Recorders made by Sony, there is even a somewhat rare 5CD->MD Recorder deck. I see these all of the time on eBay, prices vary with the seller and condition I think about $40 on the low end and up to a lot if one is mint. I recently got the 5CD>MD Deck for $25 at Goodwill since they did not know what they had. The remote control for that one is rare but also turned up a month or two later at another resale shop. The D40 is a good unit to have since it clones CD>MD easily.
Doe the deck play LP discs or only SP discs? My impression is that it does not support MDLP - which I suspect is your problem. Does it play discs recorded on that machine? Let me know if that solves it. If not, I have other thoughts.
Two possibilities, The Spindle motor need lubrication or the unit is in such condition that the pickup can not focus on the disc. This happen if the spindle platter goes out of specs- they slip down mostly. The CD olayer wants to get a Focus OK signal before the disc is told to spin.
You have to record in real-time using the analog or optical input on the R50. This is a great portable, built like a tank. The unit predates MDLP and NetMD. ... but the diehards will tell you, that SP is not "real SP" since due to the contortions in SS (probably to comply with the licence from Dolby), SP is never generated on the PC side, but the whole thing goes VIA LP2. Therefore with SS, you will never equal "true" SP (which is an amazing format - 24 bit floating point accuracy, actually one step better than a "real" CD). Increase Engine Horse Power.
C13 means the deck cannot read the minidisc table of contents for some reason. Since you have no disc in the deck it probably means the laser head is out of allignment or just plain worn out.
I often see MDs being sold for parts, but you need to know the fix is usually cost prohibitve. Most likely the laser assembly in your deck is bad and will cost too much to replace. MD's are more complex than CDs and are optical/magnetic using a laser to read and a laser + magnetic head to record on the discs which are read/write many times.
