Im thinking about getting my daughter an mp3 player, how difficult is it to download music onto it?


I note this question was posted to a page about Minidisc players, so just to be sure, this article covers both formats as they are very different.

MP3 - by your daughters standards - should be childsplay.
Loading files will be as easy as moving any other documents around a WINDOWS based PC.
Apple files work differently but just as easily and most likely she is already VERY familiar with how this is done, even if it should prove to be new to you.

MP3, occasionally malfunctions but majority of time entirely due to software or media corruption since few players have any moving parts.

Hundreds of legitimate websites will sell tracks for peanuts and of course she can transfer the existing media you have at home by "ripping" (to use the pc term,) whereby a PC will read and convert a CD format recording very quickly into an MP3 file.

Minidisc - to be avoided UNLESS, I repeat UNLESS THERE IS A SPECIFIC REASON FOR SELECTING MD. See examples.
Minidisc is all but obsolete having been abandoned by the pioneering manufacturers very shortly after it was born in the early 1990's. However, it was literally kept alive by a strong faithful owing to a couple of particularly strong traits associated with the format.

Playing faults are very few because MD generally gives the best of both worlds.
CD players (portables aside) are fine providing you don't move them about, MD players have large BUFFER MEMORIES meaning that as the disk starts playing the machine reads what's coming up ahead and stores this in the buffer ready to recall the data if the machine gets bumped or jolted in such a way that causes the read head to lose its track. Imagine two people reading the same book, the boy reading out loud reads one page behind the girl reading silently. Every time he gets lost, she picks up the tale reciting the words from her last page....and to your daughter's ears it all moves seamlessly.

For this reason musicians requiring music playback still love MD because there is no software to crash mid-performance and no disc to jumping effects the way vinyl did in the 80's.

Despite this ONLY choose MD if these features are of essential value to your daughter.
Minidiscs are increasingly hard to find. Minidisc machines are out of production with the exception of second user, remnant stocks and some eye-wateringly expensive professional models.
Software is an issue because very few machines were designed with the foresight to accommodate the interaction with a PC that we now take for granted. Lastly the specification revolves around the technical standards that were "advances" twenty years ago. Therefore 80 minute capacity per disc is typical, but pitiful by today's benchmarks. Your daughter could copy hundreds of hours of music to even the most basic of today's MP3 players, such is their typically vast memory capacity.

Hope this is of some value.

If I want to record let's say someone speaking for 90 min and burn 2 cd's , one 60min and the other 30 min from the one 90min recording , each one divided into tracks , how would I do this ?


If you want to burn a CD you have to make a master. For 2 cd's you have to make 2 masters, one for each recording.
The best way to handle this is to "create a song" for each speech giver and give each a name.This is because you can make only one master copy of a song before burning a Cd.

But another way is to :
1. Make a master of the first speech giver (who is on one track) and record to the Cd.
2. Make a new master of the second speech giver (on the other track) and record to Cd.
As long as you don't mind, the second mastering will overwrite the first one that you did, but then you already have burned a copy of that Cd!

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?


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.

Hi i have a 50484 player im trying to install. It keeps coming up with a registration failure what can i do


You clearly know what a 50484 player is, but I and other Experts can only guess. It's definitely not any minidisc player I've ever heard of, but maybe you're referring to a Sakar mp3 player.

As I don't know for certain I'm not going to spend time on an answer which might be a waste of your time and mine. In any case, if it IS the Sakar player then you haven't given details of the operating system of the host pc so the question remains impossible to answer.

May I respectfully suggest that you repost your question, with all necessary details, under the MP3 Player section of FixYa? Experts on mp3 players will then be able to see your question instead of Experts on minidisc players who may have no idea about mp3 players.

Hello


Dear cutechicago3

The best thing is to first copy the music files to a folder on the desktop, then use the mp3 player's software to locate music and transfer it. It is best to avoid confusion.

Thankyou
