hi,

i want to burn mp3 files to the Sony MD's:
http://www.amazon.com/SONY-MD80-Minidisc-Neige-Minute/dp/B0007MAJBQ
but it will only take 80 minutes of mp3 file to burn to one disc.

can you suggest if i can use any other MDs that will allow me to burn more minutes of mp3.
*my biggest mp3 file is 202 minutes long and smallest 13 minutes.
(these are Bible books which I am to record for somebody else for http://www.amazon.com/Sony-MZ-NE410-Speed-Walkman-Recorder/dp/B00008IHOZ usage)

Thanks for any suggestions.

Do you burn this as audio or as data (audio cd or mp3 files)?

The later md recorders allowed X2 and x4 recording speeds - recording as atrack.  This would give you 320 minutes on an 80 min disc.
I used this for music and the quality was quite acceptable.
There are/were 1GB discs available if your machine could use them, but last time I looked these were way overpriced and rare.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Your Sony MZ-NE410 supports ATRAC 2 and 4 (MDLP mode) so you can record up to 320mins on a standard 80min MD.  The issue is about playback, the player that it's listened to on needs also to support MDLP mode on a standard MD player tracks recorded in MDLP mode playback as silent.

If you are using SonicStage to record you need to put it into ATRAC3-LP4 mode (66 kb/s) . For spoken word he quality of playback will be fine, provided that your users have MDLP devices the playback type will auto-select.

See bottom of p.17 in your manual for the MDLP specification

I do, where it says 'record more than 5 hours of music on an 80 minute disc'.

MZ-NE410 is the only place the MD will be used. then are we in good shape to use 320 minutes using the setting you mentioned? ( ~ATRAC3 - LP 4 mode )

If you're playing back in the same device then you've no problem, just make sure you record at LP4 (80min x 4) speed to get the maximum amount of space on the MD :)
