Fast Mini Disc > CD Tranfer?

Hi!

I have a lot of mini discs to transfer to CD. At the moment I am playing them on my portable mini disc player, outputing through an analogue cable to my soundcard. Recording with CD Wave Editor and then burning to CD.

Is there a faster way than transfering the audio in real time? What about using a different mini disc player, a standalone player, not a portable one?

Thanks!!!

Mate, have done a few myself ....there is no faster way - analog playback is real time and nothing else.

If you can .... get access to a proper deck for your transfers. Remember that everything is built to a price, so there will not be anything fancy in an MD recorder

Why a deck ? Proper line output of a deck will be miles better as opposed to running through the ouput / headphone stage of the portable (unless the MD has real line ouputs). .
Minimal distortion from the MD deck O/P and no need to dial in 20db of gain via your sound card or software.

Your transfers will sound better for it.

Cheers

if you can find one with a digital out that's the best of all... mine only has a digital in

I don't believe you can get around doing it in real time
