    Does anyone else use Sony Hi-MD software with a minidisc player? I am on a large research project with 10 of these machines and about 7 Mac laptops running everything from 10.3 to 10.5. This software was working fine up until about a week ago, when all machines stopped recognizing the minidisc player. When you plug in the minidisc unit via USB, it doesn't even launch to the desktop, although you can still see it in System Profiler.

    Sony says that because you can see it in the System Profiler, it is not the Hi-MD software's issues, but is instead a OSX problem. Could there have been some kind of OSX modification within the last couple weeks that rendered the software incompatible?

    We have a huge project and collecting all the data depends on using these machines. We're all Mac based and of course Sony is Mac incompetent.

    Any help is greatly appreciated..

    It's unlikely that there has been any change to 10.3. Do you have access to multiple minidisc machines or just one?

    We have multiple machines, about 9 overall. Apparently some (3) are working fine still, but the rest have the same problem. Thanks for any help..

    Which machines are working and which aren't? Post specs if you can.
