I have a basic Sony MZR500 portable MD recorder.
I have a creative soundblaster 51. Live! soundcard.
I want to record music digitally from my PC to my MD
I have an optivalt cable, but the connector on the end that does not plug into the MD itself is, I'm told, a miniTOSlink or something.
Anyway, its a tiny square with a little but sticking out (that sounded good :S ) which doesn't fir into the labelled 'DIGITAL OUT' on my souncard.
Seeing as it says 'DIGITAL OUT' I assumed it would create a digital output from the souncard. If this is the case, there must be some cable to connect the 'DIGITAL OUT' on my souncard to the 'Line In Optical' on my MD.
Cheers for any help lads
(and please dont tell me I have to buy an audigy. I sold my Ps2 which is what I used to use to record CDs to MD before, and I have no money left after buying a new TV. There must be some way? :P )
Sure you dont have platinum?
> I think SPDIF is the port you need to plug it into on your computer
And let me guess.... SB Live! 5.1 doesn't have it?
A bit more explanation please? =]
Played music, pressed record 'no signal'
Tried switching audio settings to 'digital output only' - no signal
