E-Mail group of individuals interested in recording natural sounds.Hi all,

I have a small MD machine (Sharp DR 7 A), that I use largely for playback a=
nd also recording.

It is about 3.5 ys old and I have used it a lot as I also play music in it.

All of a sudden it stopped working. The problem is that it won't finish the=
 TOC (table of contents) READ, and it'll remain running the disc, until som=
e times it'll display that it cannot read the disc.
In the process it makes this "mechanical" noise as the disc is being read (=
as a fast clac clac clac - not a good noise I guess!).

I was suggested to clean the reading lens with a dry cloth. I thought that =
would be done with alcohol.

I don't think I can get it repaired where I live, in Argentina.
Prob the best is to buy a new one.

Thanks a lot in advance,


Juan Mazar Barnett
