Net MD MiniDisc Windows 7 64-bit Tutorial

Note (Updated 9/15/2013): Window’s 8 32bit & 64bit users, you will need to disable driver signing security in order to install the Net MD driver. You can visit for a step-by-step tutorial on how to do that.

A quick and easy solution to fixing the issues with Net MD devices not being compatible with Windows 7 & 8 64-bit. I did not create this fix and unfortunately I don’t know who is responsible for it, so I can’t take credit…

  5. don't forget to download drivers from this page link under video.

  6. WINDOWS 10 it works, I have installed this 5mths ago on Win 8.1, you can see if you scroll down the comments section. For Win 10 you have to follow these steps again. Firstl you need to watch video – on disabling driver signing, reboot computer. Secondly in control panel – view all devices, right click, choose hardware tab, update drivers which should be in a folder on your PC. Wicked can't believe it Works with Win 10 lol

    Do you have any idea how to get the Print a Label function to work?

    I got the SsLabelPatch.exe from Sony's site, but it fails to write to the registry.

    I tried running as Admin and various compatibility settings.

    Hope you can help.

  16. can't transfer tracks to the libary get an error saying recorded by Net MD

  17. SonicStage says to me : "you are logged as a limited account user.Transfer is not available"…. 

  18. I tried to install SonicStage 4.3 for use in Windows 8.1. I used this link:

    It's not installing it. Can someone please tell me if this is the right place to find a SonicStage compatible with Windows 8.1? I want to be able to move files from MiniDisc onto my computer as mp3s.

  19. It lives on!! Thank-you!  Sonicstage is still as hopeless as always but it's worth the hassle so I can us my MD.

  20. Thank you.  it works on windows 8.1, i did the disable driver signing thing but not sure if i really need to. i had to go to device manager instead of finding the device is my computer because for some reason it doesn't show it in my computer but watever
