PS I have a Sharp MD-MT270H

Preferred Solution: Minidisc player?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My computer recognizes the minidisc player and downloads a driver for it, but the minidisc player will not work. I have plugged it into my USB port, but nothing happens. It is a Sony and in the handbook Sony says that I need to contact my computer manufacturer for a USB audio upgrade.

A:minidisc player won't run on my computer

I have no experience with it, but you say that the computer recognizes the player but nothing happens. How is it recognized? Does the player play the disk at all? Can you plug in your earphones and also the usb at the same time and if so, hear music. Have you check the various Volume Control Propetrties to make sure that the one for hte player is not turned down or muted? Post back with more details if possible.

I was given what I think is a minidisc. It looks like a cd, only much smaller. It isn't completly round however, as two of the edges are trimmed down. It looks more like an oval now.

My question is, if I were to buy some of these, can I copy my stuff onto them just like a regular cd? With Nero or whatever, and secondly, anyone know where I can find these items to purchase? Thanks!



you can copy onto them if they are writable discs or rewritable discs. ive seen and used some of the discs you described. they are made that way for convience --like the size of your pocket easy to lug around. However they do not hold the storage capacity of 80 minute (800mb) they generally hold anywhere from 150mb - 210mb . also click on this link to see where to get them. http://www.plaza101.com/plaza/search/res/r8174691.html I have purchased them at office max at one time. hope this is a help

I need to find a way to get the recorded files from the minidisc to my computer so that i'd beable to burn them and give them to some people(so that they could play it like a regular cd or at least use their computer to play it)I tried plugging the line cable into the mic jack on the back of my computer but that didn't work to well since the program the comes with windows doesn't record to long. Is there another recorder that i could download that is able to record longer? Is there anyother way to get it on to my computer.

I'm trying to give some people the stuff i secretly recorded in a staff meeting and it is very important.

Thanks for any help.


Do you have a Creative sound card? They sell an accessory to their sound cards (it comes with the Augidy Platinum and Live! Platinum) for I think $30 or so and it has an optical in and out especially meant for minidiscs. It comes with some pretty good software. Also, Sony makes a computer to MD interface that you can easily transfer recordings with. Otherwise, I haven't had much luck either trying to record through the analog onto my computer so I wouldn't be able to help ya there.

a friend of mine showed me a disc that he was sent by a friend in japan, it has songs on it that he composed and he wanted to know if I could copy them to a cd for him. the problem is I never saw a disc like that, it looks like a standard floppy disc except that it is smaller, it is made by tdk and all the writing on it is printed in japanese, he took it to a couple of big box stores and they know nothing about them. tdk's website shows that they have them and they are called minidisc but no other info, can anyone help?

A:minidisc ??

If so, yes its a minidisc. It was phased out several years ago. You'll need to find a player to be able to use it. I have a Sony player/recorder.

I want to tidy up some audio files a friend has recorded onto Mini Disc, but the software that comes with it will only allow you to put on the PC what you have taken off. Does anyone know of a program that will allow you to use your USB connection to import the audio to the PC.

is it possible to record song i have on my computer hard disk directly onto a minidisk? if so how? i have Sony MD (MZ-R70) and am using Windows 98SE

A:computer to minidisc

You should be able to record it the R70 via your sound card. You can either use a patch cable to go directly from the speaker port on your sound card to the mic port on the R70, or you might be able to record the song just off the speakers from your computer, tho the quality won't be very good. You might have to search a little to find a cable that will connect your sound card to the R70.

Here is a link to more info on the R70 .

arial My Sony Minidisc player records really well, how do I get the files that I have recorded with a microphone transfered to my computer for editing?

Best way I know is to get a male to male Line In-Out cord. It looks like 2 ends of a headphone socket attached. You would plug one end in the line in or mic socket on the computer and the other in the headphone socket of the minidisc player.

I have two pcs on a wireless network connected to a cable modem. One pc (Thinkpad) has no problem playing internet radio stations through wmp. The other one (Dell 4100) has problems with streaming audio. It can connect to the radio station fine (or download the audio file in either format) but then it keeps buffering while it's playing. I've tried just about everything I can find to fix it: editing the registry (MSoft tech note,) changing the network settings, changing the buffer rate but nothing seems to work. There is more than enough bandwidth to handle the flow of data, plus my cable company says it's not them (of course.) Any help would be really appreciated!

That?s very interesting. It cannot play DVDs but you want to use it s default player. ;)
You know what, forget WMP and use something else. I recommend you to test ?VLC player?. It can read all video formats and you don?t need to install some codecs. It is for free.

If you will be happy with it you can set it as default player for video format files.

I've been having problems listening to music on windows media player and watching flash videos. The playback is choppy (sometimes gets stuck and generally bounces around) but also my system seems to take an age to start up and is slow.

I've run disk-defragmentor, scandisk, spybot, adaware, AVG etc. But no luck.

This has come about since I've put about 20GB of music onto my laptop (I still have around 47GB of 70GB free). However, when Windows Media Player is not open the system still runs slowly and I have no luck running flash videos.

The only possible solution I can think of is deleting the music but I'm a bit hesitatant to do so because it took me ages to put it on!

Anyway, thanks very much for any help you can give me!

I wonder if there is a method to force windows7 to recognise my mp3 player as hard drive instead of player.

Why? 2 things.

I find it annoying that I have to click on player then internal storage, when it could go directly to internal storage right away.

2. When I first plugged my player in I saw lots of files inside, after running the Phillips (sync?) setup it hid lot's of files even though I have show hidden files on.

Anyone knows the roundabout?


A:Force recognize mp3 player as external hard drive instead of player

well the easiest way to over come your first problem is to change what windows does when its first plugged in. its called default services I think in control panel. and when plugged in you can set it to open in file view as default. no clicking needed.
only reason it does what it does is because when you first plugged it in windows box popped up and asked you what you wanted to do amd you chose to open player not open folders.

Had a lot of trouble after installing Microsoft's DirectX 7a. Could not use DirectDraw, Direct 3D, or any media players: all would result in a page fault (Kernel32.dll @0137:bff7297c).

After over 30 days of troubleshooting, we isolated the conflict to the Vision 95 which has an option of being or not being installed along with the STB Velocity (Virge VX) 3D drivers.

However, BEWARE OF DIRECTX 7a and especially WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER!~ I shout because ya need to [email protected]

1. Right-click an empty area of the Windows taskbar (such as below the system clock), point to Toolbars, and then select Windows Media Player. This step enables the feature and must only be performed once. The Player will dock the mini-Player in your Windows taskbar whenever you minimize it.

2. Minimize the Player to view the Mini-Player.

Recently I re-installed XP(probably didn't have to, but that's another story). I finally got my internet connection back and have re-installed my audio files. When I tried to start Musicmatch, I would be prompted that currently there was no music folder. After I "clicked' yes to that, the MM music would come up for a second or 2, as would the MM logo, then everything just quit and nothing. I finally uninstalled MM and re-downloaded it. Now when I try to start it, I get nothing.

I can run my music on Win Media Player, but can't run an entire song without a prompt that Media Player has experienced a problem(of course, when you click that promt, MMP disappears). It also won't play MS format music files.

I also can't get Real One to come up - after about 5 seconds of booting up, I get a prompt that it's encountered an error.

I also can't get Quick Time to come up...I get an "error 2093 message - make sure it's installed in your system."

Again, everything ran fine before reinstalling WXP(from the D drive?). Is there some common driver or something for all these media programs that I might be missing?
