    you might be better off getting a cd burner... just because no one has mini disc players and you would have to listen to headphones... if you're burning your mp3s on it anyway, i say use the technological medium for listening to music of the age; this year (and a few to follow) being the CD.

    I LOVE MINE!!! I have almost put all of my digital music and burned Cds onto MiniDisks. super convenient. expensive, but so worth it. My only problem with it is that my computer takes a really long time to convert the tracks to the proper format.



    oh and I've replaced the AA battary a total of once in the last 6 weeks of almost nonstop playing.

    i used to love mine... then it kind of broke and, no, actually someone broke into my car and stole the power cord, thts what happend. but yeah, i loved it. BUT that was two years ago.
    unless you're recording shit with a mic, live, i say go with an mp3 player, and infact, even if you are recording live, go with this here 300 bucks. 20 gigs, plus it plays movies.
    thing is dope. ya heard.

    i just ordered an external cd burner, should be receiving it shortly...it looks like my days of buying cds, at least new cds, is comming to an end.
    in terms of MDs, get a good one, like one that just came out. i bought a sony one probably about 3 years ago and now it won't record anything. i use it alot for recording live music, like bootlegging shows and what not, and it sucks when you get home and say "oh lemme put on this md of this great show i just saw" and then it reads it and all you see is "BLANK"...
    i hear portable DAT recorders are the way to go if you plan on hooking up a mic to record live shows. they go for a little more but i hear there are less problems with those, and you can use them in the studios, you know DATS...i dont know really, but yeah it works better

    i have the Sony net md type r MZ-N1
    .. whatever i love this thing its my third player/recorder i have gotten.
    its got a wonderful interface and adocking port for both recharging and loading music from the computer.

    It runs on a file format called Atec-4 or something.
    its a compression format like mp3 except designed for md's. It allows for you to store 2, 4 or 6 hour md's rather then 74 or 80 minutes. although the sampling rate/ resolution does change i find that its better then mp3 in terms of garbling noise and bunk.

    I can carry 3 discs and be set for days. I take alot of long trips and im rarely home so i find this really worthwhile. 5 yrs ago really buying into md technology in America was worth it unless you were a vinyl freak.
    but since digital rather then analog conversion has become more standard here its actually a nice device.

    positives. you arent restricted to a computer for sampling sounds and music like you would be with an ipod or any other mp3 device.
    although there is no harddrive and its disc based it is not like a cd and allows for countless re-recordings without losing quality. Although i cant say its 100% perfect when it comes to skips. its still pretty damn good.

    aesthetically theyre beautiful little machines. magnesium and aluminum cases (im not a fan of plastic), control wands, analog and digital input.
    what its lacking at least in consumer models is digital output.

    the program thats packaged with it is called OpenMG jukebox or something.. i dont mind the interface its actually laid out pretty well and simple to learn. What i cant figure out is how to import audio in from my md unit. (if someone knows id really appreciate it) the reason for the md compression format (atec-4) from what i understand is an attempt to limit file sharing... im sure some smart person has figured a way around this. Transfer speeds from computer are relatively fast depending on your computer (up to 32x) which is great. when it has to convert files.. lets say from mp3 or wav it may vary.
    The second program packaged is a simple cd to md burner for converting a whole cd album. this is lives up to its namesake.

    Im a big supporter. but im not going to lie ive had some hardships with mine.
    heres a good site if youre just getting into MD technology

    www.minidisco.com

    if theres any other md heads in here or anyone knows an MD forum please let me know.

    i got a slimx mp3cd/asf/fm/cd player and i love it. nice metal tough, looks good. real slim (as the name says) and i can put a couple hundred mp3s on a cd and be set for weeks on end. its got a great control stick with a kickass menu system and i can even listen to Morning Edition on the way to class on it.
