RE: My Newbie Question
MD uses a compression algorithm similar to (but different from) MP3 designed to discard information not easily detectable by human hearing. This tends to cause problems with audio-based data formats.

Generally you have to use an uncompressed or lossless format (e.g. .WAV files) to successfully record/play back the old cassette signals from vintage gear on digital media.

But I don't think I've heard of anyone trying MD for this, so who knows? Please let us know if it works!


PS It might be worth a peek inside your cassette recorder at the tape counter. I'll bet it's just aged/disintegrated drive belt which may be an easy fix.
