Sony Walkman, getting info off disks faster than one to one

We have a Sony Walkman MZ-N707-r It uses Mini disks We have all the programs that come with it. eg: Jukebox How can we move all files on disk to computer for editing without transferring hour for hour . The program that comes with the Walkman only goes for a few min. and then shuts down. Some times we have hours of information that we would like to down load but it takes the same length of time that it took to put it on. Any programs out there?

Belt replacment on Sony tape deck TCWR535 resulted in auto-reverse and one direction not working. Any ideas??

I just replaced both sets of belts on my Sony TCWR535 tape decks, per the excellent Instructables directions. Getting the belts on was a bit tricky, but I think I did it correctly. But now both decks only run in one direction, and won't auto-stop/auto reverse. At the end of the tape, they just sit and clunk. Any suggestions on what I did wrong?

Making a phone headset from soney erricson into a pair of normal headphones?

Hi, I have a pair of Sony Erricson Inear Phone Headphones, I'm wanting to make it into a plain pair of headphones. To do this i have chopped off the phone adapter and stripped back the outer insulation. What i have now are 5 wires. One uninsulated copper one that i presume acts as earth and an aerial, one black, one white both with plastic insulation and one green/blue and red with some form of wire insulation. All cables bar the copper uninsulated have a kind of fibre in the middle, can anyone help me identify which are the audio channels?

Generic MP3 player to Sony car stereo

SONY must pay $150 for music virus damages; how to collect?

A few years ago Sony BMG Music was putting wicked rootkit viruses on the PC's of anyone who played their CDs with a computer. Less than 2 years ago, the US FTC settled with Sony that they should no longer hide malware on CD's and that people whose PC's got infected with their viruses be paid up to $150 for the expense of fixing the PC's. Soon after that, Sony sued the company that designed their viruses for $12,000,000 to pay for the damage. While searching the internet I find lots of cheering but no info on how to claim this settlement. I'm sure there are many people out there whose PC's were infected a few years ago after playing a Sony CD who wouldn't mind getting $150 now.

How to connect Xbox 360 to older Sony stereo amp? Answered

Whenever I plug my Xbox into my amplifier, the sound comes out extremely loud and distorted. I am only using the standard RCA plugs, because my TV is kind of old. I would really like to use my Xbox to play music and movies, but my TVs speakers are pretty awful, and I would like to have volume control when using my headphones. The audio settings on the Xbox are very lacking, so there is nothing I can do there.

Need pin connections and source of connectors for Sony 8GB Walkman MP3 player and Ipod

My girlfriend's Sony Walkman 8GB MP3 player is a Model NWZ-E430. It is difficult to find docking stations and accessories for Sony units in retail stores, and few options exist even online. I'd like to build a docking station with high-quality amp / speakers for her. I am an electronics and computer tech by trade, but this is my girlfriend's player. I don't own one, and have not experimented with them. I need to know the pinouts (connections out of the Walkman) to connect it to the docking station... polarity of power connections, speaker outputs, etc. I also need a source for the Sony connector to fit into the Walkman. Finally, I need to know what the pinouts are for an Ipod docking station, in case I find one that I want to buy and hack, so it will work for the Walkman. Not having an Ipod, I do not know if they are the same type of connector as the Sony, but I assume they are different.

Broken Playstation controller. Help? Answered

Well, last Saturday I bought a Playstation controller from a yard sale. It was an original PS controller, you know, the ones without analog sticks or rumble motors. Anyways, I plugged 'er in, and it played fine. I was able to play for hours with no problems. I woke up the next day, plugged it in, and nothing. The controller just stopped working. I've tried several times since then, and it still is not working.  I cleaned it all out on the inside, I made sure the buttons and button contacts were clean, I cleaned the part that connects to the Playstation, but it still won't work. I tested out a couple of working controllers in the same controller port, and they both work fine.

PSP Fix, Need Help

Hello all! I recently aquired a broken PSP 1000 as sort of a challenge to myself. Now however, I actually want it to work. I need some help with the fix, so here are the problems I have been able to identify: -PSP won't always charge, I strongly believe it is the battery though. When I tilt the PSP around at different angles, it will charge. Also, fiddling with the battery makes it charge. -PSP won't tun on. I have checked the power fuse, and it was burned out. I placed a jumper across it like so many internet guides say, and it now has continuity. When I hold the power switch, the PSP will do one of two things:                                  1. The light will turn off, and then turn back to solid orange (charging)                                  2. The light will turn green for about 0.5 to 1 second, and then turn off -PSP will make a rythmic clicking when not charging, doesn't seem to be a problem though. -Battery is cracked, and I don't know if it works properly because it won't maintain proper contact with the PSP. I have also checked the backlight and USB fuses, they both have continuity  so I'm not worried about fixing them. Right now I would just like it to turn on. If anyone knows anything, please make a comment, perhaps someone else has this problem. P.S.  What is a pandora battery? I keep hearing about those, what do they do? Also, what exactly signifies a "bricked" PSP? Thanks UPDATE: 11/08/2009 I had a friend test the battery, he said the battery works and he charged it for me.  Now the PSP turns on. But, (there's always a but) there is no activity on the LCD. I tried bridging the backlight fuse with tweezers to see if the fuse was the problem, no luck. So what now? All I have learned is that the charge circuit doesn't work and that the PSP turns on with no activity. I held a white LED flashlight up to the screen, but I didn't see anything. any suggestions?

How Do I make an Alien arm like wikus's in District-9 in time for haloween?

I wanted to see district-9 since May when I saw one of the super creepy propaganda flavored commercials and became rabid with curiosity. I tried to sneak in (twice!). I finally saw it today. I loved it. Now, my heart is set on making an alien arm like Wikus's for Halloween. If I had seen the movie earlier, I would probably build the whole alien costume, but as things are I am a little short on time. I'll have to go for the genetic-recombinant-halfway-through-transformation look. I won't be going as Wikus specifically(I am female, so that wouldn't work anyway), so the arm & claw have to be all the more recognizable as district-9 alien stuff.  (I suppose I could bring a can of cat food along, but that feels like a badly contrived substitute for doing things right.). There are no reference pictures for me or anybody; because of  sony's secretive media campaign there are hardly any pictured of the aliens to be found, and I have yet to find one of Wikus in which his arm is visible. My dad says I should use paper-mache to make the thing, but I've had bad luck with the stuff in the past. I was thinking of using plastic on foam base, but that seems rather inefficient. the only other option that comes to mind is plaster, but I would have to make all the molds myself which would be quite a pain. any suggestions? I sure could use some.

Old Stereo headset found, but it has an odd array of solder points and i can't seem to get any sound, any ideas? Answered

Hi there! I recently found two old sony headphone speakers, but i can't seem to get any sound out of them. It's a standard L/R speaker set that was enclosed into each ear piece. The odd thing is though that there are 8 solder points on the speaker pieces. One which is black blobbed and two that are white blobbed (i'm assuming it's to prevent shorts). Two wires are connected to two of the solder points (they don't seem insulated though...) I've tried various connection methods to make them produce any kind of sound, but nothing happens. I'm assuming they still work because they look intact, but...well any ideas? I don't have any expertice with audio equipment, but i do have basic electronics experience... I know it's kind of an odd question, but i'd really like to use these speakers and i wanted to make sure i wasn't doing anything wrong. Basically i've been trying to connect various music players to a mini jack port using a microphone mini jack cable (seems to work for all other purposes) and then tried to connect the speaker wires to the jack port solder points (in various ways).I'm probably going to feel really stupid as the answer is probably really simple x3 I hope it makes sense!i should probably specify that the main problem is that i can't get any audio output from them, aka. they're silent no matter what i hook them up to
