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?

THE BEST WAY TO DO IT:
Obtain (1) a MiniDisc player with optical digital (AKA Toslink) output and (2) a WAV recorder than has an S/PDIF digital input and (3) a converter that takes the optical digital input and converts it to a S/PDIF digital signal.
Good luck finding a MiniDisc deck with optical output. Sony don't make 'em anymore and they were notoriously bad anyway. Scour eBay for one, and good luck. I purchased a used Sony MDS-JE510 on eBay for $45 in August 2010. Too bad my original MDS-JE510 broke down - for the 2nd time.
As far as a WAV recorder, I suggest a Microtrack II made by M-Audio which is found for $160-$180 brand spankin' new. I bought an earlier version of M-Audio's recorder called the Microtrack 24/96 on eBay in August 2010 for $80.
Regarding that optical-to-S/PDIF convertor, you can get that for under $20 on eBay or Amazon.com.
Once you transfer your MDs to WAV files, you transfer the WAVs to your computer via card dreader. Then, you use some WAV-editing software (do a Google search for Audacity) to manipulate the WAVs as you like. Then use another software program (do a Google search for CD WAVE EDITOR) to split up the large WAV into files.
Or.... you can find a hobbyist like me and get him to transfer your MiniDiscs for ya.

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.

Problem with transfering!


This is not a solution, but an explanation.
There is nothing wrong with your Net MD. This is a standard feature Sony included to protect copyrights. An extensive search of available soft produced only one non-commercial product which promisses such transfer http://winnmd.net/
No idea if it works, it's a shareware.

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.

Sony net md mz-n707 problem


Ive used minidiscs for a long time an really worked for a minidisc computer solution. However Sony really commited suicide as far as limiting the format to non-computer usage. They've dont this on purpose, and its really led to flash players domination.

As far as a solution.. The only viable possibility is to get a usb sound card with an optical in. They can easily be found for $20. Then you can get flawless transfer from MD to PC. Only downside is that its limited to real time recording. But thats the best that is available for the time being outside the Sony software itself.
