Please consider adding this the capability of uploading private recordings to a computer at high speed (for non-digital recordings only, of course) to the NetMD specification.
This feature would greatly enahance our use of the format in various community radio and webcasting production tasks, and I don't believe that such a move is at any way in odds with Sony's current policies for protection of copyright material.
I presently own an NetMD, and am part of a small community of programmers and engineers associated with KFAI community radio in Minneapolis. We all use privately owned MD for interviews, ad-hoc music recording and as a fallback recorder for important concerts we record for airing (with permission, of course).
Allowing digital uploading of things we have recorded via the analog input would save us hours.
We presently are finding that non-MD solutions (such as direct HD recording) save us time this way, but we would much prefer to exploit the MD device's unique properties and to help Sony further both their product's success and our own desire to help ordinary people produce radio programs of professional quality.
