Hey, you seem like a Minidisc guy, so you might know: How do you get a recording OFF a Minidisc and onto a PC? Today a friend needed me to take a concert recording from MD and put it onto a CD - I eventually just put a line-in into my PC and recorded it through the sound card. Is there an easy way? Can you convert those .hma files somehow? Just curious, I guess. edit: MD players have an awesome eject action. Very dramatic. I could just sit here all day clicking the open button and having it go KA-CHACK! Well mnemonic isn't really around much right now due to him being at DLI in Monterey. But its pretty simple, you hook the data cable from the "out" plug on your MD player into your computer (usually a usb or firewire plug to 1/8 jack or optical/optical) and if you have the MD drivers installed, it should show up as a drive in your "my computer" on a PC or in the dock/desktop on a mac. If it doesn't work, and its something with its own program (like SonicStage), open the program, and look for an "import" tab or button. Then it should either show up as a drive in a pulldown menu or just automatically import from the device.. If you can't find either one of the above - it means you haven't installed the drivers or software for the MD player. edit: I just looked, and .hma files are ATRAC3 sonicstage files, so you'd need sonicstage to pull em off.
