Converting MiniDisc to CD digitally
« on: March 07, 2018, 11:27:08 AM »
I have a MiniDisc deck with optical out. Is there a cost effective solution to transfer the MD's to CD digitally other than going to a soundcard with an optical input?  I'm looking for ideas and/or someone who already has this capability and would be willing to help. Please pm me or email at adam.meyer@gmail.com.  Thanks in advance!

This is how I run the MDs I get...

Sony MDS-JE510 > Hosa ODL-276 > Tascam HD-P2

Seems to work just fine.

***Do you have PHISH, VIDA BLUE, JAZZ MANDOLIN PROJECT or any other Phish related DATs/Tapes/MDs that need to be transferred???  I can do them for you!!!***

I will return your DATs/Tapes/MDs.  I'll also provide Master FLAC files via DropBox.  PM me for details.

Sony PCM R500 > SPDIF > Tascam HD-P2
Nakamichi DR-3 > (Oade Advanced Concert Mod) Tascam HD-P2
Sony MDS-JE510 > Hosa ODL-276 > Tascam HD-P2

That would absolutely work great.  Just not very cost effective. For me anyway...  :(

You can use any recorder with a TOSLINK or SPDIF input (with a Hosa ODL276 or MAudio CO3). 

How many MDs are you looking to Transfer???  I might be willing to do them for you...

Ok. Thanks! I'll check into those items. Thank you for offering to help out. I'll PM if I can't find anything in my budget. Also, to answer your question, I only need 3 MD'S converted

I may have been doing it all wrong, when I was running MD, but I just did a real time playback to the PC via Line In to the native Windowz Recorder app. Then dealt with the wav files from there. With only 3 discs in question, it really wouldn't be that big'a chore.  :shrug:
