It would be a lot simpler to get the remote. Check minidisc.org to find the one you need (most MD Sony MD Decks will do most functions with any sony MD remote) the catch is you need the exact one for stuff like this. You can also check the manual there to try and find a work around but I think you'll need the remote.
Almost any Sony MD remote is available on eBay, the parts houses still carry them but they can ask a lot for them. I recently found the exact remote for my 5CD-->MD deck for $1.99 at a resale ship, it would have been $65. at the parts house.
Hi-MD came after most of the sony decks were made so most of them will not play the discs. The JA50, 20, 333 and other sought after high end decks cannot handle them.
If you check ebay you might find a third party later MD deck which can play them (I believe someone made one).
When the discontinued Hi-MD discs started selling for $30 up each I sold all of mine and the Hi-MD portables too. You can hook up the Hi-MD via rca and just copy them if need be for a special song but this is not pratical due to the vast difference in storage on the discs in most cases.
MD Decks are now orphans, Sony just dropped the last of them stopping making of Hi-MD (1GB Discs) last fall. Those rare 1GB discs are for the 45 hour recording portables were going for up $50 each on eBay like hotcakes as a result. I use an old program Sonic Stage in this old Vista Machine, but unless your system has some sort of pathway to handle older software programs I think you have gone beyond anything written for a modern interface. I'd suggest you record and edit what you have the old way on the deck and then save or record the output into your microphone jack to get it on your system, then edit it further. I'm old school and better at editing it with a remote on the deck than with the computer. In the end it sounds the same if I rip it later or make a CD or whatever. I personally use my MD deck to record whatever I like and edit it the old way since the MD allows me to edit it as I please.
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.
