    well the bad thing for minidisc is you can't transfer songs from it.. or atleast what i was told. I used line out or the mic port on my soundcard ( take off the 20db thing for mic in ) and use any live audio capture program. Be sure to disable all other sounds if you use it though

    Correct, you can't digitally export songs from the Minidisc to the computer.

    Wrong!! You can transfer songs from an MD to the PC. However, you can only do this if the songs were originally transferred using the SonicStage.

    I don't know of any other software available for transfer of songs in the ATRAC3 format except for the SonicStage software.
    Also, transferring songs from your MD to PC will retain it's ATRAC3 file format. You'll need to find a way of converting it to MP3 so that you can use it with other players.

    :confused: I always understood that it wasn't possible, because of copy protections etc.

    The lesson here for the kiddies is to stay away from MD or ATRAC-3
