Multimedia, AV Currently, .mp3 players are all the hype. Everyone has one, and if you don't, you're old-fashioned. I do not have an .mp3 player. I tried to have one, but for various reasons it did not please me. I'm a MiniDisc guy. I've always been. MiniDisc has some serious advantages over .mp3 players, whether they be flash or HDD based.

I had MiniDiscs for a while. They were great before MP3 players had enough storage to be practical. I started using them as you would a tape deck, going from CD over optical directly to MD.

Then I started using the NetMD, where you could take a CD or MP3 file and "burn" it to am MD over USB.

Let me just say, Sony's software is, as has been said, a steaming pile of crap. It's slow in it's responsiveness, it's badly written, awkward to use, and overall combersome. Burning takes longer than one would like, but primarily it's the software.
