NetMD Upload Petition to Sony: Collected Entries

(Sign the petition)

    1350. Just like everyone else.

    Posted by Darwin Conley on 7/2/2002, 22:08:18

    I am a national trainer and have found quite possibly the best tool to record my talks but can not use the tool to publish my talks after recording. It would be an outstanding piece of hardware if it could be uploaded to a PC where I would be able to edit the recording for duplication and publication.


    1351. NETMD -please consider

    Posted by maku on 7/2/2002, 23:27:33

    Dear Sirs,

    Please consider the way you are packaging your product comes accross as deceptive to the average buyer. When there is a USB port attached to the NETMD player and you are told you can upload files to the computer a purchaser will assume that they can record onto the MD device and then upload as well. On behalf of all the very disatisfied customors, who are going to be your best advertisers, please re-evaluate what you have done. For a purchaser like myself, I cannot even return the device since the country I live in, does not take returns on working equiptment. -I bought it to record teaching sessions and save myself time by upload to computer and burning out to CD so we could distribute to the students.
    Thank you for your consideration!


    1352. Can't upload, will return NetMD Player

    Posted by Darren D. Croom on 7/3/2002, 1:10:21

    I will be returning my recently purchased Sony NetMD Player this weekend because of the enability to upload analog recordings to my PC.

    I'm thoroughly disappointed.

    1354. too many resrictions

    Posted by George Iannetta on 7/3/2002, 1:40:17

    Your customers pay good money for your NetMD players because of their convenience and portability, not to indulge in copyright infrigement. You are restricting your way out of the MD business (your own invention!)


    1355. Please add upload capabilities

    Posted by Masud A. Khan on 7/3/2002, 3:08:13

    Hi,

    I make a lot of live recordings of lectures and [non-bootleg] performances and this capability would greatly help me at my editing stage.

    1358. Pourquoi?

    Posted by LeLaulau on 7/3/2002, 5:40:33

    Le minidisc coule petit à petit. Dans quelques temps on en entendra plus parler, il faut réagir!


    1359. 2-way functionality

    Posted by Miles Golding on 7/3/2002, 6:16:09

    I was thinking of acquiring a Sony NetMD with USB. Now I won't, because I have discovered that such a supposedly sophisticated tool surprisingly does not allow live uploading of audio from MD to PC. I am incredulous. I won't buy until I find a machine that has this facility.

    You know it makes sense. without this capability netmd will be oboslete in a couple of years! do it before it's too late!


    1361. NetMD : content à moitié

    Posted by Patrice ODDOS on 7/3/2002, 7:59:05

    JE suis musicien, et je l'avoue que le minidisc est très pratique. cela fait 8 ans que je m'en sers et quand j'ai vu que la nouvelle Génération comportait la Fonction NetMD, j'ai tout de suite acheté un nouveau produit. Qu'elle a été ma désolation de ne pas pouvoir uploader du minidisc vers le PC. J'enregistre beaucoups de prestations live sur MD car la qualité est largement suffisante et le prix de revient est moins cher qu'un DAT . C'est vraiment dommage que le transfert ne soit possible que dans un sens car je suis obligé d'attendre chaque fois 74 minutes pour le transfert alors que celà pourrait etre fait en 10 Minutes. Donc je vais ramener mon MZN1 en attendant que vous ou un de vos concurrents ( SHARP-Panasonic-AIWA ... ) sorte un protocole pouvant marcher dans les 2 sens. En attend

    1363. Usable software AND upload feature thanx!

    Posted by Erik Almqvist on 7/3/2002, 8:11:51

    I've bought a MZ/N1, it costed 4300 SEK (~$480) and I can't even use the OpenMG software!
    It crashes all the time. I've tried re-installing both Windows 2000 and OMG, but the crashes remain.
    Not being able to upload music also is a petty.

    Preferably I would like to see a Linux/OSX version as well (pretty similar systems, could share alot of work) or at least want to see the specs opened for the Open/NMD guys (http://opennmd.monochromatic.net).

    You really need to do something about this, you really do.

    Thanks in advance
    Erik


    1364. Feature please

    Posted by Rob Ward on 7/3/2002, 9:09:46

    There should be an upload feature as many people use the recorder for recording other sources than CD - it would be great to upload interviews rather than recorde again in real time. Make sure its an new feature of the software sso we don't have to buy a new MD again


    1365. OpenMg ver 2.2 SUCKS ! pathetic software !

    Posted by Andrei 76 on 7/3/2002, 10:24:36

    Fix it !

    yes to the upload


    1367. Please incorporate uploading

    Posted by Brody McDonald on 7/3/2002, 11:34:55

    As a music teacher and a member of several acappella ensembles, I rely on my MD for rehearsal and even concert recording. Having the option to upload from it via USB would make it much more useful.

    1369. I like the upload idea

    Posted by Sal Ochoa on 7/3/2002, 15:26:25

    I like the upload idea because it allows me to edit some of my music more easily by recording live vocals or instruments. It is a good idea.


    1370. for NeMD Audio Uploading

    Posted by Michel Cremieux on 7/3/2002, 15:30:04

    I am a Sony Minidisc French end user that would like to point out the importance of having a NetMD uploading functions for recording sounds on the Minidisc via a microphone for those how would like to upload ATRAC3 file to pc's...

    1371. add upload function.

    Posted by Jen on 7/3/2002, 16:24:03

    i've been meaning to switch from my cd player to an md player. with the information i have found here, i am thinking twice. this would be such a great device but the limitations [software and absent upload function] make it too bothersome to even consider. if you want the MD to become more popular, take out all the limitations.


    1372. Can't upload easily, Regert on buying limited hardware!

    Posted by Oren Elimelech on 7/3/2002, 18:57:51

    I am sorry for purchasing the MZ-N1 from Sony.
    I have expected better from them!
    Please think about the users.

    1373. Upload function will expand your market

    Posted by Francisco on 7/3/2002, 19:24:21

    many more people would go into your product it that function was available.


    1374. Freedom

    Posted by Roy on 7/3/2002, 20:49:58

    The 1st Amendment guarantees freedom of religion, speech, and the press. I think we should have the freedom to use people's music without paying for it. That is why we buy an md player. We dont buy a 300 object to make replecas of objects we already have.


    1375. Easier fhan digital out

    Posted by Nick Dan on 7/3/2002, 21:04:48

    If I could upload my filed recordings with full digital quality and without haveing to buy a minidic deck with gital out and a sounndcard with digital in that would be great. It might even be able to upload at more than realtime (1x) speed. This would make all my hours of recordings interface much more easily with my PC.


    1376. NetMD

    Posted by Gary Fesler on 7/3/2002, 23:18:31

    Please upgrade NetMD to allow digital transfers from the MD to PC. Also please allow Simple Burner to transfer in SP mode as well as LP LP4 modes. Thank you.


    1377. Guilty until proven innocent?

    Posted by Matt K on 7/4/2002, 0:30:31

    I am not a criminal. I do not steal music. So why am I not allowed to upload my perfectly legal recordings from my MiniDisc player? Oh yeah, because some other loser might try to steal music with it. And pissing me off is going to do *so much* to fix that...

    Sony, take Apple's approach. Piracy is a social problem, not a technological one. Trying to stop it with annoying DRM "features" like check in/out and no NetMD uploads that unnecessarily restrict fair use will only annoy your previously loyal customers.


    1378. Check-in

    Posted by Duan Wei-Shin on 7/4/2002, 5:38:41

    Dear Sony MiniDisc Designers:

    Sony's NetMD extension is a wonderful boon to the Minidisc format and has helped bring Minidisc into the networked world of online music distribution. Our petition seeks an enhancement to the Minidisc's NetMD facility to enable Minidisc users to move their audio recordings directly from Minidisc to PC. It is not our intention to cause general trouble or engage in ad hominem harassment of Sony. On behalf of all MiniDisc users, we kindly ask that you heed our petition, as follows:

    WHEREAS,
    Minidisc recorders are ideally suited to making digital field recordings, and WHEREAS,
    Users frequently need to move recordings they make onto a computer (PC, Mac, Unix/Linux or otherwise) for processing or further distribution, and WHEREAS,
    A Minidisc recording is intrinsically a digital format, and WHEREAS,
    The only existing method of moving Minidisc recordings onto a computer involves "recording" the signal through the computer's sound card, a lengthly and cumbersome process that generally degrades the signal by converting it to analog format and back to digital form, and WHEREAS,
    All Minidisc recorders already flag their recordings to indicate those tracks that have been recorded through the digital inputs (and are copy-protected) and those that have been recorded through the analog inputs (and are not copy-protected), thereby allowing the upload function to prevent unwanted copying, and WHEREAS,
    Sony's existing NetMD function already provides for direct transfers of compressed audio from computer to Minidisc,

    WE THE UNDERSIGNED,
    kindly request that Sony extend NetMD so that it can be used for uploading compressed audio directly from Minidisc to PC, thereby providing users with a quick, convenient, and lossless method of moving their Minidisc recordings to PC.


    1379. I have conformed to the masses :|

    Posted by Martin Parzonka on 7/4/2002, 5:39:09

    I don't have any original thoughts, I think the hundreds of previous points sum it up quite well so I won't recycle old words into my own pearls of wisdom, I just support them.


    1380. Upload! Upload!

    Posted by Boon on 7/4/2002, 6:16:11

    I will only buy a NETMD when the upload feature is in!


    1381. Je suis musicien...

    Posted by Antoine on 7/4/2002, 6:43:01

    ... et la fonction d'upload ferait du MZ-N1 un bon produit. Fidele acheteur de matériel sony depuis de nombreuses années, je suis de plus en plus souvent déçu par les nouveaux produits, et j'ai beaucoup de mal à de comprendre la politique de sony ; Exemple : avec le MZ-N1, il est impossible d'effacer une piste enregisté en Net-md (avec O-MG), alors que cette même piste est effaçable avec N'IMPORTE QUELLE AUTRE platine MD !!????
    Aujourd'hui, je regarde aussi les autres marques....


    1382. upload NetMd

    1383. Uploading keeps MD alive

    Posted by Markus Wahl on 7/4/2002, 7:09:49

    In order to keep MD alive amongst all the competitive systems launched in the last years, it'll be essential to allow high speed transfer in both directions and in all kinds of compression, especially in the native ATRAC-format!


    1384. Musical rehearsal and live recordings

    Posted by Laurent Burgbacher on 7/4/2002, 7:56:17

    I have a MZ-N1 MD, great device. I use it to record my musical rehearsal and live performances. Then, I just record the result back on my PC to encode it to mp3 and send it to the other members of the group. Since I can't do it directly through openMG, I loose a lot of time doing it analogically, and also loose some quality.

    Please allow your customers to bring back to the PC via USB the songs that were recorded analogically on the MD (like live sessions).

    If another MD constructor does it before you, I'll hapilly forget Sony and buy the other one. Please listen to your customers.


    1385. FREE NET MD

    Posted by Charles on 7/4/2002, 8:04:44

    Please, Mr Sony, let me upload my baby first talk to my PC to send it to her family!

    ...and if I could use it as a storage device, it would be great !

    1386. if SONY does not offer PC compatibility then somebody else will

    Posted by Klaus Stabert on 7/4/2002, 8:55:34

    I am a SONY enthusiast, my home is full of SONY consumer Video/TV/Hifi/cellphone/car stereo equipment. I bought NT1 and I am very sorry for that. I was believing to buy a machine for up and download of sound. I record conferences with MD and have a need for convenient editing. Now I still have to use my HIFI equippment connected to the digital port of my soundcard. It doesn't prevent me from recording. I know the problem is: 'Sell something and keep it at the same time'
    -Klaus


    1387. Sounds great!

    Posted by John Nielsen on 7/4/2002, 10:38:36

    That would really be nice! It's about the only thing that the NetMD is missing...

    Posted by Claudio on 7/4/2002, 11:30:42

    1390. NetMD

    Posted by Dams New on 7/4/2002, 12:24:15

    I totally agree with your ideas about NetMD : Sony could have a great benefit in production and distribution by allowing a direct transfer, I can't even understand why they haven't done it already !!


    1391. C'est vraiment pénible....

    Posted by Cédric on 7/4/2002, 13:16:03

    J'ai des morceaux PERSONNELS que j'ai enregistré avec mon MZR-35 que je ne peux pas les transférer sur mon PC tout ça à cause d'une stupide protection qui de toutes façons n'entravera pas le piratage.
    Enfin voilà maintenant je me suis bien cassé les c.... à transférer ces fichiers via ligne analogique.
    MERCI SONY.

    Posted by Ricardo Solorzano on 7/4/2002, 15:06:58

    Please allow the feature. I´m a musician from Caracas, Venezuela, and always record my rehearsals and original songs on my MD, It would be perfect if I could send them to my computer and mix them up.

    Thanks in advance


    1397. Allow two way transfer on USB and real ATRAC-R !

    Posted by Eric on 7/4/2002, 17:22:26

    I have returned my MDS-NT1 recorder, because it does NOT allow two way transfer of audio data through USB (f.i. my own recordings). Also it does not allow me to make real ATRAC-R recordings (292 kbps), only LP2, converted to SP.
    I consider this to be two very serious flaws in the current NET-MD machines !!!!


    1398. Uploading Speech Samples

    Posted by Christie Priem on 7/4/2002, 17:54:17

    I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and work with children to improve their communication abilities. I would like to use the versatile mini disc recorder rather than a tape recorder to record speech samples from my clients. The purpose of the recordings would be not only to listen to them later, but to upload them to my computer in order to run them through speech analysis software. I am currently unable to efficiently do this with your portable consumer product and I request that you make this capability possible.


    1399. upload

    Posted by Chris Rynders on 7/4/2002, 18:20:26

    Dearest Sony,

    Please consider this proposal. I have chosen Sony MD products because of their ease of use and versatility to record live performances. Unfortunatly the only thing left out was and easy way to upload this audio back into my computer. Because of this I have had to invest in costly udio cards, adaptors and software. Please consider this proposal which will greatly help promot Sony in the fast growing competitive MD market.

    signed,
