    901. What a fool I am

    Posted by Bill Kowalczyk on 6/3/2002, 15:46:01

    I bought the sony Net MD as a means of recording my oen music. I spent more time and energy findiong the right microphone set up than I did the the minidisc player. I just assumed sony would be the best, due to their continued excelence in sound quality. But now I can't even make copies of my OWN music. Since when did sony copywrite my music.

    902. University Lectures would be made much easier

    Posted by Rafal Kubat on 6/3/2002, 17:47:48

    Simply put, when i bought my NetMD recorder, one of the main selling points was the quick transfer of music. As i quickly came to realize, this transfer only occured downstream to the MD, and could not be done MD to PC. As a university student who wants to be able to record lectures for future reference, the current transfer process is very cumbersome. I would love to have a high-speed upload from MD to PC.


    903. Microphone Created Audio

    Posted by Willem v/d Zel on 6/3/2002, 18:49:55

    Microphone Created Audio files should be recognized as free of copy-right and allowed to be uploaded to the PC.
    Thank you,
    Willem J.


    904. Uploading is important

    Posted by Todd Moore on 6/3/2002, 19:58:14

    I need fast audio uploading. When i record tracks for my band they all have to wait for me to get the time to record all of the tracks onto my computer (80)Min and then i have to go in and split up the tracks (even more time)since the recorder will record the whole disk as one track. Then i have to convert the files to mp3's from the wav files i create. The only reason i was so interested in the Net MD was for uploading. Downloading is defiantely nice but for me uploading is more important.


    905. audio upload would be helpful....

    Posted by ken vigil on 6/3/2002, 20:28:53

    i would like to see the possibility to upload tracks to the pc. As a semi-professional musician i often record simple demos and ideas on to md so i can send them to other players I work with over the web. It is possible now by recoding through the analog input of the computer but a direct digital upload would be far simpler and useful.

    thank you.

    906. Audio Upload Is A Necessity!

    Posted by Dustin Palmer on 6/3/2002, 21:01:31

    Audio upload is a necessity for the minidisc product line. You do not want to wait for 1 to 1 upload time. You can buy various MP3 player/recorders that will do this!


    907. I regret purchasing your product now

    Posted by Dr. Kevin A Swartz on 6/3/2002, 21:23:31

    I did not realize the limitations that you built into your minidisc player (MZ-S1) and frankly, at close to $200 I regret buying it and will candidly tell anyone who asks that this is how I feel until your OpenMG software allows the user more freedom to use THEIR OWN data. I understand your concerns for copyright protection, but just because you CAN severly limit the utility of your digital product doesn't mean that you SHOULD or that it is the most APPROPRIATE manner.

    Again, I like this MD player, but the software stinks and I would have taken it back, but the retailer refused to take it back since it was opened and was not defective.

    - Kevin


    908. Perfect NetMD

    Posted by F.L. on 6/3/2002, 21:33:39

    Please allow it, that will make NetMD perfect.


    909. Let's Just Try It!!!!

    Posted by Chuck on 6/3/2002, 21:45:43

    Allow us to make the choice


    910. For the student

    Posted by Edward Frankovic on 6/3/2002, 22:01:32

    This would be very helpful because it would allow for easy archiving of recorded lectures.


    911. Re: I regret purchasing your product now

    Posted by Rich on 6/3/2002, 22:47:38 , in reply to "I regret purchasing your product now"

    I agree in as far as the software issue is concerned and find it really retarded that you are limited like a way one way street in the fact that you can upload to minidisc but not from minidisc to computer? I mean if piracy or copyright is an issue then that is an issue totally thrown out the window since this if need be can still be achieved by anyone if they wanted to. It would just take more time, duh.. making the Sony limitations a joke and an utter insult to its customers as well as their own ingenuity. Also... what gives... near $300.00 and the best they can do is give a backlit controller? Nice but what about the unit itself... I don't use the remote so it really sucks when you are in a low light situation period!!! This unit would have scored a perfect 10 if it had only included these two other additions which many myself included deem more as necessity as opposed to just additions. I could have included one or two others but these are the main complaints right now as far as i can tell with the 1st of the aforementioned needing priority! -Rich-


    912. Sony Should Offer Free Digital Out Software Upgrade to its Minidisc Customers!!!

    Posted by Rich on 6/3/2002, 23:44:08

    As indicated as far as the software issue is concerned I as most others find it really retarded that you are limited like a way one way street in the fact that you can upload to minidisc digitally but not out from minidisc to computer or other digital source? I mean if piracy or copyright is an issue then that is an issue totally thrown out the window anyway since this if need be can still be achieved by anyone should they want to. It would just take more time, duh.. making the Sony limitations a real joke and utter insult to its customers as well as to Sony's own ingenuity. Also... what gives... near $300.00 and the best Sony can do is give a backlit controller? Nice but what about the unit itself... I don't use the remote so it really sucks when you are in a low light situation period!!! This unit would have scored a perfect 10 ( I am referring to model MZ-1N) if it had only included these two other additions which many myself included deem more as necessity as opposed to just additions. I could have included one or two others but these are the main complaints right now as far as most are concerned with the 1st of the aforementioned needing priority! I have seen similar mistakes made before on products that could have really kicked ass in the past but except for the companies short sightedness and lack of customer concern failed to do it... One company that comes to mind is Sega.. now rightfully out of the arcade hardware business! Granted the minidisc itself may probably not make or break Sony but Sony can enrich itself, the future of the much deserved and under appeciated minidisc format as well as it's loyal customer base! C'mon Sony do the right thing! Propell this great audio format into the statosphere and don't hold it back as has already been the case as set by the restrictive limitations already imposed! I suspect the limitation is none other than software related and can and should be updated to include the digital out as a free upgrade and offer to its minidisc customers! I play in a band situation and record and it's a real pain in the ass and theres nothing pirate or infringing about that (my or our own music being recorded and transferred digitally out to my pc hardrive)!!! But no.. instead i have to wait 74-150 or 320 minutes while the damn thing records manually!!!

    913. Upload

    Posted by Lee Hardin on 6/4/2002, 0:42:02

    Pleas add the upload functionality. Ready for a REAL user friendly Device? I AM!


    914. Please add MD to PC upload

    Posted by Steve Dossick on 6/4/2002, 1:30:15

    It would be great to finally use my MD portable as a way to move music from one of my computers to another.

    It would be great, too, if I could transfer non-music files somehow between computers.


    915. Please i need it 4 a school science experiment

    Posted by peter on 6/4/2002, 1:59:55

    Please i need it 4 a school science experiment
    that goes like this
    REcording -> minidisk -> Computer


    916. it's a shame ......

    Posted by keko on 6/4/2002, 2:02:28

    all is made as usual to protect the billionaire interest of the big recording and music production houses wich are getting rich with with
    the talent and creativity of the bands and musicians .
    This big shit must change and it will soon ...fortunally .


    917. Necessary FEATURE!

    Posted by Jason Wright on 6/4/2002, 4:14:17

    Please make it happen!


    918. i need this.......

    Posted by Chris Hayden on 6/4/2002, 4:29:39

    not only does the sheer weight of atrac3 files on my pc slow it down, its also crippling my storage space. having waited for ages for this netMD, then paying £200 for it, am i going to then have to expand my already 20gb hard drive just to save myself time?


    919. This restricts Live recording & editing

    Posted by BillDelPrere on 6/4/2002, 8:36:19

    I purchased my MD to make live recordings of my band. My hopes were to be able to easily (& digitaly transfer these recordings to my pc for editing & archiving. This restriction is silly & should be changed.


    920. why not?

    Posted by jolle on 6/4/2002, 9:53:46

    This recorded-md to pc feature should be a necessary next evolution


    921. audio upload - pétition pour Sony

    Posted by Nicolas Presseau on 6/4/2002, 10:28:09

    un plus pour le NetMD !


    922. Please make our dream come real

    Posted by Nicolas on 6/4/2002, 11:03:49

    We think that if you give us this facility, you will certainly give more attration to your product making it one of the more interactive and pleasant item in the high technologies market, please make it ...


    923. A true digital MD computer interface goes both ways.

    Posted by Steve Torrens on 6/4/2002, 11:16:52

    I was so disapointed to fine that I could record digitaly on my new MD-707 which has USB but could not send audio out through the connection. Mac and PC support of this would make the MD a hit.


    924. Would be a great thing

    Posted by Saul Areyzaga on 6/4/2002, 12:47:47

    I just switched to MD from CD-MP3 and although Net-MD's are great, the possibility of uploading your recordings digitally would make MD the best music product.


    925. It will not sell if this is not done

    Posted by Paul Riley on 6/4/2002, 12:49:16

    If this capability is not added, I would never buy it and neither would most people. Please help keep MD alive by changing. thanks


    926. This is why everyone hates the RCAA

    Posted by Jim Gardner on 6/4/2002, 13:48:50

    This is highly oppressive and just plain wrong. There are many things which someone may need to record an item and then email the sound file to someone else. I can think of many times this could be used in the law firm I work for. This is just like Microsoft and their "copyright protection". Someone will find a way around it, so why even try to stop it?


    927. After calling tech support. I want to return NetMD.

    Posted by William Ho on 6/4/2002, 13:52:58

    Having connected the idea of having a RECORDER, MICROPHONE IN, and USB, I bought the MZ-N707 minidisc recorder without reservations.

    I called into tech support for some answers prior to seeing this petition. The engineer, Doug (call no. E17251859) (1-866-456-7669), said it's not Sony's problem, and to look for answers elsewhere. I was very disappointed by the call. Having seen this petition, the problem I have with the product is widespread.

    The main reason I bought the minidisc recorder (MZ-N707) was to import audio for digital video onto my Macintosh or PC via USB. Turns out there's no support for Macintosh, and I can't import audio recorded via USB on either platform.

    Please, add this capability to NetMD. It WAS the main reason why I bought it in the first place.


    928. md is a optomagnetic cdrw

    puting softawre/hardware restrictions only makes it a less appealing device.


    929. National Geographic needs digital uploading to justify supporting the format

    Posted by Brian Strauss on 6/4/2002, 15:15:12

    Currently i have 10 Sony MD recorders in inventory for recording natural sound and interviews for National Geographic Magazine's Award winning website.

    Why must i re-digitize my digital content to use it on our website?

    In order to transcribe interviews, i must dub the digital recordings to tape.

    If i had a simple digital upload method, i could rapidly inventory the MD recordings on a server and have a business model to justify supporting the format.

    Please enable this needed functionality for analog recorded MD content

    930. archiving my band's rehearsals

    Posted by Arnaud Bourge on 6/4/2002, 15:25:48

    I am a musician and I use my portable MD recorder as a powerful tool in the scope of rehearsals. Any improvised idea is caught on the MD and can be included in a song even after everybody has forgotten it. The only drawback for the moment is that it is painful and time-consuming to archive all this on the PC (where I could easily organize the data in appropriate folders). This is why I would greatly appreciate the possibility to UPLOAD the my music from the MD to the PC.


    931. ever heared of the snowball effect ??

    Posted by Uli on 6/4/2002, 15:28:45

    Hi . first of all: in the past i was very satisfied with Sony Products . i`ve got a sony monitor a sony amplifier(over 15 years old and still doin its job) a sony Dv cam (PC 100) a sony tuner a sony cd player , and : a Sony NETMD
    . i would like to have the sony broadcast mobile , too . but it `s a bit too expensive ...:-)
    so i come to the point : please solve the problem we have with the NETMD-mans .



    933. Minidisc Upload : a need

    Posted by earion on 6/4/2002, 15:37:40

    We need uploading for practical reasons !


    934. Semiprofessionals

    Posted by Christoph klenert on 6/4/2002, 15:48:11

    I bought a sony quality product. And it doesn´t keep what it promises. It´s so restricted, i could cry. I just want to take to my computer what i created myself. Manage what you want, don´t manage MY RIGHTS!


    935. le md upload pour remplacer la disquette

    Posted by david on 6/4/2002, 15:57:33

    Je possède quasiment tout les accessoires MD et je pense qu' avec le MP3 cela aiderait pour le transferts de données et le stockage.


    936. Please don't let this technology die.

    Posted by Nick Smith on 6/4/2002, 16:25:44

    I enjoy using the minidisc in making field recordings. However, the limitation of digitally inputing the MD audio onto a PC is a pain. The quality suffers, and more time is required to cover up 'generational loss'. Screw this, I'm going back to DAT for now.


    937. Allow us to save Recordings.

    Posted by Don on 6/4/2002, 17:32:04

    Allow us to save the recordings that we make and share or personal recordings of our family and the events that our children perform in (i.e. band and choir).

    Thanks for your consideration.

    938. Why microphone

    Posted by Chris on 6/4/2002, 17:40:48

    I just purchased a MZ-N707.. one of the reasons I went for the expensive model was that is has a microphone input. I was shocked to learn that the things I record with my minidisc I cannot transfer to my pc without using a plain old record function. We are back in the days of analoge tape here.. we need upload as well please.


    939. I want to upload audio

    Posted by Patricio Oelckers on 6/4/2002, 18:54:33

    Sometimes I record the audio of my clases and conferences. I had the idea of doing with my Sony minidisc recorder, but it is very disappointing to have to play it and transfer it in analog format to my computer for storage. I believe that audio uploading will make the big difference with MP3 players


    940. upload is absolutely necessary for this product to maintain its presence.

    Posted by greg payne on 6/4/2002, 23:31:52

    I have 5 minidisc recorders that I use for recording live masters for garage bands. If I want to master these I then have to record via analog or digital to my desktop via a high quality digital capable sound card in real time. It would be so much easier to be able to upload directly from the disc. This makes the minidisc a viable and convenient component of my mobile studio. Soon I will have to consider bypassing the MD altogether and recording straight to a computer or start using Recordable CDs. Until upload is available I will have to return the NetMD unit that I purchased. If it does come available soon I will continue to support MDs, if not it will go the way of my DCC decks.
    Thank you


    941. Stop the restrictions and let the a great product go where it should, the top

    Posted by Joe Tran on 6/5/2002, 0:04:27

    I love the sony minidisc format. Everything about it is awesome. But given that, why is it being nindered by software restrictions concerning unploading/downloading via PC? Stop playing games and give the format some freedom to grow; it has the potential.


    942. Uploading Capabilities

    Posted by Eddie Smith on 6/5/2002, 0:39:41

    I bought the Sony MD MZ-N1 for the single
    purpose of taping my teaching, uploading
    it to my PC, editing it, and making it
    available to my students. The salesman
    told me it was no problem. So I bought
    it and brought it home. The first thing
    I discovered was that it would not do
    what the salesman and common sense would
    say it should. What do you suggest now?


    943. I agree, there needs to be a way to import audio.

    Posted by Brian Hartvigsen on 6/5/2002, 1:05:11

    I am attending college this fall, and it would be nice if I could record the professor, and upload his lectures to my pc for later reviewing.

    947. Field Recording

    Posted by George Macklin on 6/5/2002, 2:29:03

    I would like to use my minidisc as field recorder. Simple as that. Presently it is too much of a hassle to record and then have record again when I get home.


    948. A benefit to all

    Posted by Daniel Lopez on 6/5/2002, 2:30:10

    I don't play any instruments but love listening to music. I could see original artists really getting use of an upload feature. DJ's and other artists already use MD because of its convenience but I'm sure would be thrilled to be able to upload and give themselves much needed exposure. I would also appreciate the upload feature so I can record interviews and upload them for videos I shoot and edit.


    949. Fixing the Netmd Bugs

    Posted by Marcus on 6/5/2002, 3:21:59

    There are some Nasty Problems with NetMD that should be fixed.

    1. Linux support
    2. upload audio recorded over line-in or mic in to pc (allows minidisk as replacement for dat recorders)
    3. Allow to "burn" Atrac 1 instead of atrac 3 via usb-upload (for playing ion old players)
    4. remove the deleting and managing lock that prevents to kill or change netmd tracks directly on the player. I am not willing to keep 10 gb of "playlists" in order to be able to delete my disks
    5. 32x upload with 66 kbit/sec (lp4) was said by the marketing. 3x is reality. please change that
    6. netmd players should also run on an active usb hub
    7. many people reported on problems with openmg: crashes at 8%, even without a hub, only solvable by reinstalling windows.
    this is bullshit! please fix this open mg bugs! this has to run without reinstalling every 3 weeks
    8. Add a line-out to the players. The headphone out is not the best way for analog recording to a pc. a digital line-out also would be interesting

    Even if point 2 and 8 will not be done because of the copyright problems (but who is such stupid to use netmd for mp3 exchange? this means 3 conversions mp3 --> atrac3 ---> mp3. ) such a loss of quality! everyone exchanges mp3 via cd-r and that can never be prevented with such childish "copyright protections". ) , the other points are normal bugs that do not infrige copyright and should be fixed!

    Noone would buy a car that only runs with the fuel of one brand and where the motor stops working all 20 miles!!!!
