Sony NetMD


Sony portable Minidisk player NetMD, minidisks and accesories.

Model number: MZ-N1

Can play and record all in one unit. Support 2x and 4x modes, for extended record times (4 CD's worth of music). Provides a quick and simple way to take your MP3 collection with your on the go.

Very cheap to expend the memory compared to MP3 players.

Mono: Double capacity of disk size
Stereo: Capacity of a single disk
Stereo 2x: Approximatly twice the capacity of disk

Includes a battery attachment which mount onto the base of the player. This will increase the playback life of the unit from a single charge.

Bettery life was quoted at 10 hours whilst using a full charge and a new battery int he holder. I have used it for approximatly 30 hours on about 3 hours usage a day (at which point I would charge it. It has never had a full discharge).

Sony MD unit

I make a lot of recordings onto MiniDisc using a microphone - will the software allow me to download these (copyright free) recordings to the PC?

At present I have to "play" the MD and capture it via the live in socket - works well but takes ages!

Sony NetMD

On this device, no. Only recording made using the Atrak software on the PC can be transfered.

Nothing is actualy every transfered off the device, only on. It will simply delete tracks on the device, and update the DB to reflect it.

Beyond that, this device sold on Friday anyhow Smiley
