Try a lead from the headphones from minidisc player to input of the pc soundcard  so a 3.5mm jack to 3.5 mm jack.

 

Its what I use to record tapes to my pc with, using a walkman.

Hi Ankarra, per my PM if you have any issues let me know. I have an MDS-JB980 professional deck which I can rip quite easily from (including if recorded in MDLP which doubled or quadrupled the recording space, albeit at lower quality). It is a beast of a machine with digital inputs and outputs. It recorded many a Jules show for me back in the day! Because of the great build quality people are still buying them up today to use them as a high quality slave DAC (Digital to Analog converter) in the middle, which is quite clever.

Anyway however, to preserve the digital format I transfer Minidisc to CD-R via S/PDIF, into my Pioneer PD-609 CD recorder , then rip the CD to mp3 in my PC. A bit cumbersome, but it was the only way I could think of that I was content with to ensure the entire process involved only digital routes, not analog. If only they made decent PC sound cards with digital inputs and outputs and I could skip this! Again, a great machine:

Minidiscs were awesome back in the day, packing in almost everything of what was audible into a physically smaller space than a CD. They were encoded in Sony's ATRAC compression algorithm. I read somewhere this was equivalent to a mp3 today encoded at about 256kbps :)

damn i miss those days  1997 when i bought minidisc, a friend of mine had so much music from vinyl and importet cd's what a time it was.New music 2-3 times every 2 months that where awesome(still have some) and the sound from minidisc where good quality too.Today i think there is just so much music ,and the sound from mid 90's-2000's are still awesome ,but gone from most of the dj's today! Sad to hear tiesto play today,he was 5 min from where i live last weekend,i had a listen what crappy music
