Re: PC minidisc drive
Almost, except not as an external unit. I used to see
them on eBay all the time, basically a minidisc drive
that fits a standard PC drive slot (much like a CD-RW
drive would, except in a different format) with a
software bundle that allows editing of the minidisc
audio/data. The internal ones I've seen have been
about 1/3 to 1/2 the price of the MDS-PC* models, and
don't seem to show up as often on the 'problem lists'
of the MD fora. (That might be because they're nearly
impossible to find? Few units = few problems, maybe.)
I don't really *need* one, but setting up an 8 space
rack next to my computer every time I want to transfer
samples is a major drain of creative energy.
