    Hello to all. I just bought a used sony mz-rh910 minidisc recorder but, as it came from ebay, it came with little else but the unit and the seller's recorded disc, so I'm trying to figure out how to use it. I went out and bought some blank discs to "start from scratch." I got to the gig to record, inserted the blank disc, plugged into the PA head and pressed record, only to get the message "No track." I tried the used disc, and it at least recognized that there was a blank track, looked like it was recording, but did not.

    So I'm thinking at this point that there must be a way to format a disc before recording. It would be best to start with a blank disc and understand how to use the thing. Any suggestions on formatting/best methods/techniques for recording from a PA head or mic using minidisc recorder would be appreciated.

    btw, I am only using the unit to record my band's practices and gigs, so no worries about recording other bands w/o permission here.

    Recording on MiniDisc

    You do not need to format new minidiscs to use them.

    To record on portable MD recorders like the 910, all you should have to do is connect your PA feed to the line-in jack (Usually white), check the level when the unit is in pause-record mode (Usually when you press the record slider) to make sure it is not clipping and then press the Play or Record switch again to start recording.
