Minidisc sound files

Q: Minidisc sound files

My new Olympus DM-19 digital voice and music recorder has an input that is for both Microphone and earphone. The microphone works, my headphones work, but the irock FM broadcaster I bought at radio shack doesn't work in it, nor do any of the headphone plugs at my local radio shack. How can I get the Olympus recorder to recognize the irock? Do I need a different FM broadcaster? Are radio shack's plugs too short for the Olympus receptacle? They look virtually identical.

Preferred Solution: Minidisc sound files

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.)


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?

A:Minidisc sound files

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.

Is this the same thing you just posted regarding an olympus minidisc player?

Can anyone recommend software for copying MP3's to minidisc. The software that comes with the player is fine, but you have to import the mp3's into a playlist, which means they are duplicated. This takes up room on my hard drive.

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

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?

Does it look like this?

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. I've tried using the earphone socket of the Minidisc and the Microphone socket of the PC, but the quality's not as good. Cheers.

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.

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 .

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.

billthelifer, good morning and welcome to Sunday.When you Right-Click on one of your MP3's, does a menu pop up and offer you a "Properties" option?If so, please select that and in the window that pops up, you should see a General tab, a Security tab and a Details tab.It is under the Details tab that you should be able to hover (and click) over any of the fields to add, remove or change any of the details that you want.I just tried this on a couple of MP3's on my Vista machine without any problems. I've got a lot of cluttered MP3's laying around in my Music folder (free stuff I downloaded from a bunch of singer-songwriters) so I used those. Please note that I couldn't relplicate this with a wav file, as I don't have any of those, kinda big and all.Also, just as a quick aside, when you make your MP3's - what app are you using?Please let me know if that helps.Winterland

Try installing Quicktime Alternative, with or without the included player. It will not conflict with Quicktime (though it is a good replacement for it) and contains many codecs.

When I try to uninstall it, it asks if I'm sure and warns me my computer may not run the same as before. I chose yes, and it wants me to type in a series of 7 letters and numbers displayed above the text box as an uninstall validation. I do and it closes the box but nothing happens. If I type it wrong, it doesn't close the box and says the code is invalid.

Also, when I log in, two "iexplore" processes start without any internet explorer windows opening.

there seems to be some problem with the mp3 files.whenever a mp3 file is played with winamp the sound seems to be skipping(fast forwarded).
i recently downloaded a file from the net and it contained an two .exe files . i ran one of them .but it suddenly disappeared and was nowhere to be found.
as a habit i always scan all the files that i download before running them .i have ESET smart security business edition but it did not detect any threat in them.since then the pc began to act strangely.i have windows XP sp2 and since then the shut down process had a problem.the series of events that take place during a normal shut down took place except that at the time when the pc must shut down a dark blue screen with the error message was displayed.it read "windows logon process terminated unexpectedly with status of 0x00000000
the system has shut down"

i was desperate to solve the problem and ran SD fix.that solved only one of the two problems .the error message wasnt seen since then.but my audio still remains distorted.the twist in the tale is that when i play the audio with media player classic ,windows media player it seems to be ok.but when i transfer it into my portable mp3 player the the sound remains distorted.the windows environment seems to run fine except during the first two minutes.

hope someone looks into this matter at the earliest .

I just installed Windows 10 on my PC. I have had it on my laptop for a while. The install was perfect except for one problem - sound on certain files.

I have a sound card installed with the SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio Driver version 1.4.90 driver software installed. Most things have fine sound, example: youtube videos. Some files have no sound, (I think the sound starts for the first second and then fades out?). An example is a .mov file I just got emailed. I tried the clip on my laptop which is also windows 10. The sound is fine there.

For the .mov file I have played it back in the default player, vlc and quicktime, all the same problem.

I have installed the latest driver for the audio card. I also tried removing the current drivers and letting windows install the default, and also removing and then installing the drivers myself.

I have not been able to get sound on the video clip. I have noticed the problems on other clips also.

Any clues appreciated, I am stymied.

I am not familiar with surround sound cards, but have been wondering whether it is possible to play different wav files out of each of the channels of a surround sound card?

I have written a small program that allows me to 'merge' 2 mono wav files into a 'stereo' wav file, and play them at the same time - wav1 to left, wav2 to right. What I am hoping to do is extend this to at least 4 wav files, each one coming out of left front, left rear, right front, right rear. Is this possible? If so, where can I get more info on this? I havnt been able to find anything so far on the net.

Thanks for any advice

A:wav files & 5.1 surround sound

Most audio file formats are stereo only - you can't possibly put more than two channels in there. AFAIK the only free codec for surround sound is Vorbis.

Since re-installing W7, I have no sound from MOV files shot on my Canon from Quicktime, VLC, Mediaplayer and Adobe Premiere Elements. I can convert the files to mp4 and they play fine in iTunes but still not with other players. There is sound for the first second but it quickly drops off to a muffle. I have installed a few codec packs but nothing has helped. I've attached some file parameters. The files also play on my W8 machine, no problem.

A:Solved: No Sound from MOV files!

So technically I've solved the problem. Started thinking it couldnt be a Codec issue so I ran some diagnostics, etc to no avail. Then went to Control Panel - Sound - Playback and found alot of options for speaker systems. I just started changing the default speaker system until I got sound. What I dont understand is why iTunes and my system sounds still worked when the default sound system was incorrect. Any ideas?

Hi, I'm using ASUS W5F Lappie, and windows XP SP2 OS.

I use winamp for music player. About two weeks ago, I tried to play my mp3 music files, but all of my mp3 sound like scratch... nothing else but scratch sound...

Then I tried to play them using iTunes, still doesn't help.
And then when I used WMP, the sounds come out fine.

So I decided to use WMP.(I think there must be some error with other player, so I uninstall winamp)

However, when i put my mp3 to ipod, all the files sound like scratch again. (but works fine in WMP). The same thing happen when I burn the mp3 into CD and play it in my car. Even my mates copy the mp3 into usb drive, and play them on his lappie, the error still occur.

What is the problem? I did reinstall the sound driver but doesn't help.
