    This stylish player lets you store up to 5 hours of digital music and bring it with you on a single, skip-free MiniDisc for about the price of a large coffee. The Net MD is compatible with MP3, WMA, WAV, and ATRAC3 audio formats, and it even comes with a MiniDisc so you can start recording right away. Its USB connection delivers burn rates at up to 32x for your MP3s and CDs. A handy Jog Dial provides easy navigation, and SonicStage and MD Simple Burner Application software let you group your tunes and customize your playing environment.

    The player's 3-line LCD display provides album, artist and song title information on a clean, single screen. A headphone jack and headphones are included, but not the single AA battery, which you'll need to take the device away from your computer. Battery life is estimated at a whopping 56 hours (maximum).

    NOTE: The Net MD's recording features and bundled software are not compatible with the Mac OS operating system.

    What's in the Box:
    Sony MZN420D Net MD Walkman, headphones, SonicStage software CD-ROM with MD simple burner application, USB cable

    Not as good as an MP3 player with internal memory, as it is bulkier.
    M. Lamarca
    A disk I started (using ATRAC) sounds roughly as good as some disks I dubbed using an MD deck some time earlier.

    My husband just carries his as he runs, but I can't stand to hold stuff while I workout.

    My husband has the white one ($99). He has had his for a year and loves it. I got this one(blue - its cheaper, but the same model) for myself with some birthday giftcards from amazon. I love this. It does not skip or anything. I does take a little while to burn the music, not just drop/drag/ and go. But it makes up for that when you can put the number of songs on it that will last you for ever. And add to it the fact that the battery lasts a lot longer than in other players. My husband and I went through 2 different players before this one...lets just say we will stick with this player for a long time. We have his and hers players and love em. He runs and I walk and they do not skip. I also bought the carry case made for these and I love it. My husband just carries his as he runs, but I can't stand to hold stuff while I workout. I have run with it, using the case and it is so much easier. You won't go wrong with this player.

    The Sony Portable Minidisc is a piece of pure digital craftsmanship. I recently bought one from the store and I believe this is best things I have ever bought. It weighs about 4 ounces and is very compact.

    Each disc can store about five hours of music. The best thing about this player is that it records its own music. The mini disc is inside of a protective case so it makes it virtually impossible to scratch it.

    The cd-rom that comes with the player has two different programs on it to use. The first one is called md simple burner and this allows you to burn straight to your player without any delay. The software finds the names of the song and burns the name of the artist, the album, and the individual track. Simple burner also lets you put songs in its own group and name the entire disc including each group.

    The second program sonic stage takes it a step further. A person can personalize the name of each song such as "my favorite' or give it dates of when the song actually came out. Sonic stage lets you keep a media library, buy and download music and many other things. This is the only program I know that would let you remove certain songs without erasing the entire disc.

    I would recommend this line of players to any person that is on the run most of the day but really enjoys their music. If you are not totally, computer savvy this is for you.

    It is truly worth the cost.

    Ok, first off the MD player does not convert your existing MP3s on your hardrive to a new format on said same hard drive, but only when transfering to the player itself. The format the player uses isn't called alltrack but ATRAC3 (Adaptive TRansform Acoustic Coding).

    [...]ATRAC of course is a proprietary format that is in compitition with MP3 and any music you download from [...] site will be in that format, however I will restate that it is the player that does the conversion not the software on your PC. When you build your library in the software it just points to the MP3s. I would have seriously noticed if my 7.3GB of MP3s were duplicated on the drive where the software is installed since I do not have that much room left on that drive.

    Does anyone ever miss their portable cassette recorders? I mean, what does one use in today;s world to record a conversation or a performance without having to get the computer or complicated equipment involved? Anyone? We all have digital cameras and most even take pictures, but how often do you wish you could have recorded your baby;s first giggles or when Uncle earl visited and told all his corny jokes but is now passed on? Seems no one pulls out a recorder any more. MD appears to be the last bastion of handheld recorders that don't require additional equipment. Record onto it and play from it. No muss, no fuss. I will always feel it was a shame MD's never "took off", but do hope they'll always be around. I am a big fan.

    And by the way, I prefer to carry a $5 disc on my pocket to carrying around my $350 iPod!!!! I mean really. Isn't anyone nervous about carrying around their thousands of songs and multi-hundred dollar equipment? If we all had MD players, one could do like we did with cassettes/removable media: "Hey man, check out this recording I just made of _______!". Ins=trad, most opf us run around shooting pics with our cell phones and have no idea how to share them. Does ANYONE know how to record audio to share any more? Does anyone care? I do, and that's why I want another mini-disk to replace the one that recently broke (Thanks Sony!).

    this minidisc is really good. but the only problem i have is that it is not compatible with online music stores.the antishock works perfectly, as i walk home everyday, i have never once had it skip on me. and as you may get the wrong impression from one of the other comments, the song title will keep displaying over and over again if you know how to do it. obviously that person did not read the manual. and also the display is perfectly easy to see. sonicstage is very user-friendly. it is not slow to load at all, i don't know what these people are talking about. the problem i have is that the wires are quite long and get in the way if the player is not in a bag. but the hi-md is much more worth the extra hundred dollars, as it fits much more music on one disc. and the discs ARE available in sony stores, probobly at your local mall.
