NetMD Upload Petition to Sony: Collected Entries

(Sign the petition)

    2000. Definately!

    Posted by Adam on 8/4/2002, 21:18:26

    I combine my minidisc equipment with my C-Band equipment for the best ever quality. If I can fast upload it, then BOOM! I have no reason NOT to buy all new equipment.


    2001. WHY DID I EVER MAKE SONY

    Posted by GOD on 8/4/2002, 21:25:40

    I WAS HOPING ONE DAY MY CREATION SONY WOULD DO GOOD TO MAKE A MINIDISK TO UPLOAD MUSIC TO COMPUTER FOR MY HUMAN SUBJECTS!! BUT NO NO NO ONE COULD ONLY DOWNLOAD TO MINIDISK. IM DISSAPOINTED! I SHALL NOW RETURN FROM HEAVEN TO GET A REFUND AND SHOWER THUNDER IN THE STORE!! FOR I GOD HAD WAITED 1000'S OF YEARS TO WAIT FOR A MINDISK TO COME OUT SO I COULD UPLOAD MY EXPIRED GOD SONGS TO MY HIGH TECH HEAVEN LAPTOP!! KUM ON SONY! SORT IT OUT! MAN MAN!


    2002. I also bought the MD thinking that it was able to upload word recordings!

    Posted by Dr Andrew Lamb on 8/4/2002, 21:32:19

    I also bought this device assuming that audio recordings would be uploadable to my PC. I use this for primarily recording meetings using a microphone and wish to store and catalogue these on my PC. At this point the NET MD feels like a bit of a waste of money!


    2003. No upload, No chance to win MP3!

    Posted by Caihuihong on 8/4/2002, 22:19:26

    MP3 players have quickly developed, If sony still stays on the old position, it will be a over.


    2004. md-net

    Posted by rev ken campbell on 8/5/2002, 0:23:09

    god give us md, not mp3


    2005. We need our freedom

    Posted by Michael Braunwart on 8/5/2002, 0:23:13

    I returned the mds-z7 due to the fact that I couldn't upload songs to my PC. I own the cd's, I should have that right. I want that freedom, we all do.


    2006. Uploading

    Posted by Minidisc man on 8/5/2002, 5:00:58

    With up-loading feature, it will allow users more control of the editing of their disc.


    2007. this feature is really important!

    Posted by bill on 8/5/2002, 6:06:27

    !!!


    2008. upload function = i buy your product

    Posted by Erik S on 8/5/2002, 6:39:55

    market logic i guess...


    2009. sony upload

    Posted by deniss on 8/5/2002, 6:40:48

    we need it ! :-(


    2010. Frustration with an otherwise excellent tool

    Posted by Mark G. on 8/5/2002, 7:40:01

    I use an MZ-R50 to record my gigs. I purchased an Net MD (MZ-N505) so I could transfer the recorded information without having to transfer (re-record) it in real time.
    I must say the unit is now next to useless to me.

    Going cheap 1 very unused MZ-N505


    2011. net-md without uploading?

    Posted by nadlern on 8/5/2002, 7:48:31

    by making net-md's upload capable you'll open new possibilities to people and more customers to buy this portables!
    uploading is necessary for students who want to edit lectures,for people that recorded live concerts etc etc...
    pease make net md upload capable!
    it'll benefit your company!


    2012. WHY DID I CREATE SONY!! NOOOOOOOOO!

    Posted by GOD on 8/5/2002, 8:03:22

    I COMMAND THEEEE SONY TO CREATE SOFTWARE WHICH CAN BE DOWNLOADED OFF THE NET WHICH ENABLES ME TO UPLOAD MY CHEESY OUT OF DATE GOD MUSIC TO MY COMPUTER. EVEN JESUS HERE ISNT HAPPY, HE'S SENT HIS MD MZ-N1 TO HELL ALREADY! >;(

    AND IVE BEEN WAITING FOR 20002 YEARS FOR SONY TO SORT THIS OUT! KAM ON! EAT YOUR WEETABIX AND GET ON THE CASE.
    THAT WAY IT WILL SAVE ME FROM SKY DIVING FROM HEAVEN TO MY SONY STORE TO GET A REFUND ON MY MD MZ-N1 WHICH IS ONLY 1/2 USEFUL TO ME RIGHT NOW.

    (God WITHOUT Upload capability software) >(

    (God when he can upload his music to PC eventually!) <=)

    Okay im off for a nice smoke with my angels! TATA!


    2013. I agree the upload issue

    Posted by Tony Yang on 8/5/2002, 8:20:20

    that is the most resonse not buy the Net MD


    2014. Just do it !

    Posted by Bursztejn on 8/5/2002, 9:36:24

    I perform live recordings of amateur musicians and singers with my MD; The results are excellent and can be put on audio CD.

    It is time consuming and totally illogical to re-numerize the MD recording in order to obtain a WAV file.

    Sony should allow this capacity, which is probably easy to implement.


    2015. Allow Uploading Please

    Posted by Trax on 8/5/2002, 10:17:04

    Please allow uploading. It would make getting my live recordings on my computer a lot easier.


    2016. Sony MZ-N1 - Ability to convert my recordings into Digital Format

    Posted by Curt Leeson on 8/5/2002, 10:55:12

    I recently purchased a MiniDisc (Model MZ-N1) with the express idea of being able to transfer audio recordings of conferences and speeches to digital format for editing on computer.

    I support the protection of copyright and controlled distribution of copyrighted material.

    I have still not established if I can transfer my own information from a recording to my computer. I want to use the fast transfer to PC of my own recorded information that is not copyright protected. I also want to do this while making sure that the MiniDisc cannot be accidently deleted. I want the write-protect tab to be activated while I transfer (copy) my information from the MiniDisc to my computer.

    If this is not available, then I hereby appeal to Sony to provide for this functionality as soon as possible.

    If this is not possible, it defeats the purpose for which I bought my MiniDisc recorder.

    It should be easy enough to distinguish between copyrighted recordings and my own recorded information.

    I trust that you will be able to implement a software solution in the next few weeks.


    2017. Please

    Posted by ron on 8/5/2002, 11:31:01

    please enable us to upload our own recordings.


    2018. Why not Direct Upload To PC????

    Posted by Philippe Martin on 8/5/2002, 11:57:05

    I'm a saxophone player. I reciently bought a Sony Minidisc to record my own performances as working tool for practicing. It's obvious that the impossibility of directly upload the recordings on my PC strongly limits my interest for this device. This protection doesn't have any sense, because Minidisc is tipically a device for personal use... People who really dedicate themselves to piracy of commercial recordings won't use this tool for illegal purpose when CD perfectly fulfil all their needs.


    2019. Upload?

    Posted by Stephen on 8/5/2002, 12:19:32

    Why not. It allows for more efficient use of the equipment.


    2020. Please Add Upload Capability

    Posted by Stephen Sheasby on 8/5/2002, 13:12:24

    I record sermons at our church and we are wanting to place that content on the web without a myriad of other equipment and hassle to do so. Having the ability to do so from a NetMD device would save time and money for those who cannot afford high end equipment. thanks for your consideration.

    Sincerly,

    Stephen Sheasby


    2021. Add NetMD Upload

    Posted by Michael Stimets on 8/5/2002, 13:42:03

    thanks


    2022. Need UPload. May be Sony doesn't know how to make it works

    Posted by Jim Kim on 8/5/2002, 13:55:28

    Net-MD is GREAT techknowledge.
    But without Uploading function. It's a half product.

    I do record the lectures using my N1 and hard to upload to PC.
    Please add upload function...
    May be Sony don't know how to make this thing??


    2023. MiniDisc recorded Interviews

    Posted by Glenn on 8/5/2002, 14:47:54

    I record interviews on my Sony MZ-N707 MD recorder.

    But - frustratingly - I can't record them onto my hard drive for transcription or storage.

    That sucks!

    Please introduce this facility, and while you're at it, add Mac OS X software because PCs suck too!

    Thanks
    Glenn


    2024. Uploading via NetMD

    Posted by Doug Mandell on 8/5/2002, 15:30:54

    By crippling NetMD you cripple the minidisc format, allowing uploading from minidisc would help make MD the preferred recordable music format worldwide.

    Please reconsider,
    Doug Mandell


    2025. Next Logical Step...

    Posted by steve on 8/5/2002, 16:38:42

    I know you'll live up to your reputation that I've come to expect.

    Thank You for all the Great stuff so far!


    2026. Digital Uploading is essential

    Posted by Josh G on 8/5/2002, 17:21:04

    I am an instrumentalist who frequently records my practice sessions. I think all instrumentalists would love the ability to make digital recordings which were able to be transfered to CD without the use of an expensive DAT deck or hard disc recorder.


    2027. Uploading Net Minidisc to a computer

    Posted by Gary Bainbridge on 8/5/2002, 18:53:02

    I agree that would be a very useful facility. As an audio professional, a fast method of uploading files from Minidisc to, say, .WAV files would be extremely useful. Whilst I can understand why this feature is not available due to Sony's desire to protect copyright (for Sony Music?) the existing SCMS bit could prevent illegal use. Also PLEASE allow full quality transfers without reduction to LP quality.


    2028. Restricting our MD's are also restricting your selling market.

    Posted by William Heffernan on 8/5/2002, 20:23:53

    Please do not restrict the inventiveness and artisticness of users by restricting the usage of the md. Use a little imagination and you can see the usage possibilities of the MD are endless, hence selling the sony md to a larger market.


    2029. Please give us upload

    Posted by Andrew on 8/5/2002, 21:29:18

    upload will be such a cool addition. Not to mention peek ppls intrests in going with the netmds instead of mp3 players


    2030. MD uploading

    Posted by S. Redding on 8/5/2002, 22:24:41

    I have 2 minidisc home decks, and 3 minidisc walkmans, all Sony. I was extremely disappointed that my newest net MD will not allow me to upload to my computer. I almost feel as if Sony is trying to abandon us loyal MD users, and force us to use MP3. I have never ripped off internet music. I only make re-mixes from my extensive private CD collection.


    2031. Re: Restricting our MD's are also restricting your selling market.

    Posted by S. Redding on 8/5/2002, 22:28:16 , in reply to "Restricting our MD's are also restricting your selling market."

    An excellent point. Let the marketplace decide if the technology is economically viable. I believe Sony could really increase MD hardware sales if they allowed uploading to PCs.


    2032. sony rocks / why stop there?>>> md uploading

    Posted by not saying on 8/5/2002, 22:58:33

    sony ,your stuff is the best,however uou could do md uploading,it would make computer audio transfers easy.


    2033. Uploading helps people who take live recording and edit through computer

    Posted by Lndmi on 8/5/2002, 23:11:47

    Uploading helps people who take live recording and edit through computer Also, it can save our time to wait record the audio track back to the computer wave file.


    2034. Sony or Sharp who will be first?

    Posted by Patric Early on 8/6/2002, 1:41:38

    Although Sony is clearly the gold standard of a/v products, surely the competitive nature of the informed consumer demands some attention. I buy the best that the market will provide. I have recently purchased my third Sony MD product. But, if Sharp issues a better product...


    2035. NetMD Upload

    Posted by Sylvio LAURENT on 8/6/2002, 2:28:27

    Dear Sony MiniDisc Designers:
    Of habit I am especially satisfied with creations of Sony, because it corresponds a lot to what I wanted.
    Unfortunately, big is my disappointment to note that this time Sony didn't hold his promise: " I have him IMAGINES and SONY MADE him!.
    Only one detail misses so that it is again true: To take the liberty to recover my own MZ-N707 registration on my PC in numeric ".
    My confidence is acquired you, thank you for advance
    Sylvio.


    2036. MD Upload Necessary for Quality Business

    Posted by Ken Jackson on 8/6/2002, 2:41:38

    Please allow the upload - I shoot weddings and other events which require the best quality - I want it to be all digital! Please listen to your customers and give us the capability!


    2037. Looking for other technologies

    Posted by Harri Keto on 8/6/2002, 3:17:31

    My old MD recorder was broken and I was about to by a new one. No will look for other technologies.
    I was very disappointed when I found out that net MD will not allow me to upload to my computer. I've been using MD for live recordings of a band and a choir for training purposes. Mastering and mixing the recordings is done with the computer. BUT IT'S VERY FRUSTRATING TO RECORD VIA AUDIOCARD. IT TAKES TOO MUCH TIME TO GET INTO WORK. COME ON SONY!!!! Today I think I'll go to by a digital recorder with all necessary technology in it. It's not SONY until SONY have better technology form me. SONY, YOU ARE LOOSING EASY MONEY!! Your MD technology is so close what I need.


    2038. I need it to

    Posted by Laurent HUBERT on 8/6/2002, 3:57:13

    I use to sing with friends and record our performance with Sony MiniDisc.

    But to create a CD (which is the most common audio format) we have to transfer our audio via an audio cable and it is really long.

    I bought a NetMD just to be able to transfer from MD to PC.

    I think I am gonna return my MD to my seller, because he did not warn me that it was impossible to transfer from MD to PC.



    2039. Stop limiting potential

    Posted by Linh Nguyen on 8/6/2002, 3:59:48

    This is one of the few items that has held back MD.. especially in the US. Sony, you need to start listing to your users rather than the RIAA.

    I too would like to record lectures, my friends who play guitar, and be able to upload them to pc. MD is so much better than anything else, but this missing feature is holding it back (it wouldn't hurt to give your software a look at too).


    2040. Yes !!!! We all need it :-))

    Posted by Jurij Kienbaum on 8/6/2002, 4:29:00

    My header says all what I wanted to say


    2041. COME ON, SHARP, BE THE FIRST!!!

    Posted by Gus on 8/6/2002, 6:04:51

    Sharp, come on! This is your chance to be the first in this race in the 21st century. There is a huge queue out there waiting to clinch your latest technology, if you can BOLDLY take this BIG step ahead of sluggish SONY!! Can't you SEE??? There is no space for sluggishness in the 21st century!!!

    So SHARP, come on!!! You can do it, NOW!!! Give us a software to upload MINIDISC to the PC!!!


    2042. transcription using voice recognition technology

    Posted by Lee Chee Hoong on 8/6/2002, 8:47:14

    I bought a MZ-R909 basically to upload to PC to transcribe my church's sermon using voice recognition technology. It is important that the voice file be digital and that the upload speed be very fast. Sony should enable not only NetMD but all minidiscs to upload their speech and dictation to computers for further processing.

    2043. NetMD Upload!

    Posted by Quirin Hauzenberger on 8/6/2002, 8:49:34

    I use my NetMD MiniDisc Recorder for recordings of live music as a technician & roadie for live bands. They want CDs of their concerts, but I can't use the USB connection to the PC for uploading the songs. I bought THIS MD Recorder because I thought this is possible. I NEED this feature - and I think it would be possible to manage the rights of copyrighted songs and only be able to upload self-recorded songs!

    Regards,

    Quirin Hauzenberger


    2044. Upload is my Dream.

    Posted by George on 8/6/2002, 8:50:01

    To Upload recoreded information data to PC had been my dream. Wish it comes true soon.


    2045. Without upload, NetMD is useless for me

    Posted by Ricard Wanderlöf on 8/6/2002, 9:34:14

    I make a lot of original recordings, from lectures and the choir I sing in, to ambient sounds of nature etc. I thought NetMD sounded like a good idea at first, and I was considering getting a Sony to replace my current Aiwa MD recorder. However, after having learnt that NetMD does not permit me to transfer audio from MD to PC, I decided not to go this route (instead I'm considering getting a digital soundcard to communicate with my Technics MD deck).


    2046. Coming second is not good enough

    Posted by D Tam on 8/6/2002, 10:23:48

    All those familiar with Michael E. Porter (professor of buisness, Harvard) you would know srategic positioning is one of if not the most important factors for a succesful buisness. And the netMD upload function is a perfect way to gain it. Sure other manufacturers will catch on but like a quote i heard "we all remeber the first person on the moon, but who remembers the second?", so i finish off by saying, come on Sharp, are you not sick of always being in second place?


    2047. upload - A must!!!

    Posted by Henrik Rydell on 8/6/2002, 10:32:08

    I have alot of mic recordigs from partys and and stuff that i whant to upload and send as mp3 to my friends!!!!


    2048. No buy Sony until No upload

    Posted by Chaporon on 8/6/2002, 10:39:40

    When you do a record of your voice, you must to upload her.
    I have a Sony Mini Disc and if the upload stay not available, i don't brought SONY.


    2049. UPLOAD PLEASE

    Posted by tom on 8/6/2002, 10:43:04
