Need help with new sony mini-disc mz-s1. Recorded cd in auto volume control and it was way too soft volume wise for the wing. I had to run the mini disc at max volume and the wing audio at 26 to even hear it very well. I see there is a manual set for vol on the mini-disc but it doesn"t seem to work when recording for the computer. Thanks

I haven't set anything when I have recorded from my computer. Never a volume problem. I have a 707 which is last years model.

Make sure the auto volume on the mini is disabled for playback. That has been the cause of most low volume problems!

For playback set the MiniDisc volume to its max setting, turn it up as high as it will go, turn off the Automatic Volume Limiter, you can consult your instructions on how to do it with your model.

With mine set like that, I run the Wing's stereo at 18 for listening at highway speeds.

Found the recording level has to be set manually. Recorded off many CDs and the song level changes with every one played. Some good, some to soft. Still love it thou.

KC........The mini disc unit is the burner/recorder also. You plug it into the your computer with the supplied USB cord to record. You can also record straight from cable boxes, TV, stereo, and probabaly many other sources onto the mini player/recorder.

Ho much does it shorten the battery life when you run at max volume?
USUALLY, high earphone volume has little effect on battery life, but, on a unit with an amplifier and speaker, high speaker volume shortens battery life considerably.

The media is similiar to a floppy disk, not a cd as you might think. Can rcord up to 4 hours on the older style, and I think almost twice as much on the newer style. Use the dc adapter with mine, but 40 hours play with one "AA" battery is easy average. Use the shuffle and never get bored with the play sequence. Love it, not sure what is first and second place. My XM or Sony disk recorder.
