Many MiniDiscs do NOT have a digital output - you can record through the analog stereo line or mic inputs any stereo source that matches the proper levels (these levels vary depending on which Mac)
In order to record digitally, you have to have a digital source with a TOSLINK optical output, and a Mac that has an Optical input. Otherwise, you can buy USB and FIrewire interfaces with ADAT optical, S/PDIF stereo inputs, Tascam TDIF 8 track digital connectors and AES/EBU connectors, depending on the source of the signal and how much money you can spend.
Ex = former, no longer. Spurt = a leak, esp. when caused by water pressure. Expert = a has-been drip under pressure.

I may be oversimplifying this, but if you're trying to take something you've already recorded on your Minidisc and record it to your Mac's harddisk, then I would say you can do this in real time by simply using a standard cord with two small jacks from the headset output on the Minidisc, to the line in on your Mac. Then you can use a free app like Audacity to record, and can export the file (for instance to mp3).
In my experience, you can do this fine with a Powerbook, but if you have a Mac Mini, you'll need something like the Griffin iMic. The input from the Minidisc then plugs into the mic port of the iMic (the iMic is USB).
Or did I completely misunderstand the question??
