4 and 1/2 years on and I've got the MZ-RH1 uploading my LP2 and LP4 minidiscs to my Mac! All is not lost and I've basically future proofed my music collection by giving me the option to copy my old Minidisc onto another MP3 player if I want to.

How did I do it you ask? VM Fusion 5 and an old copy of Windows XP. Sometimes to get features companies only build into the Windows version of their CE software you have to run Windows on your Mac.

The MZ-RH1 Minidisc is still going strong for field recordings and my wife helped collect vox-pops for a Christmas feature using it. The final feature was eventually broadcast on a string of local radios round the UK on Christmas Eve! I was so impressed with her machine that I got one myself for my birthday last year (probably my last chance to buy a MiniDisc player :-(). It is really great build quality and will outlast my mum's iPod Nano for sure.

I get the feeling iPods are more fashion symbols than great products. The Nano doesn't even have AM on the radio to listen to BBC Radio 5live (sport radio) even though my old MZ-G755 Minidisc had both AM & FM back in 2002!
