I'm using a sharp MD DR77 which is similar to the DR420.

I connect the audio output of the MD to the input of my sound card with the
4-wire to 3-wire cable.  Then in Adobe Audition I record while playing the
track(s) on the MD. If you don't have Audition other audio editing software
such as Cooledit will work.

The MD's pic input supplies enough voltage to power an electret mic. The
acquarian hydrophone, model H2, is designed for this type of input. I'vew
had great success with this equipment.

I have recently purchased a Sharp IM DR420H MD recorder. (This is what my
budget allows) Is anyone familiar with this unit?

If so, how do I get my MD recordings to my PC sound card and hard drive for
analysis and editing.(and eventual CD production)?

Sharp supplied the Remote/EArphone cable, the "connection cable (for digital
recording)", the "connection cable (for analogue recording)" the "output
conversion cable (4 pole to 3 pole plug conversion)" and the USB Connection

Also, will the DR420H accept the signal from a hydrophone?

Thanks you all.
