In this situation you may not be able to select USB Audio Device even though the USB drivers seemed to install fine when you first plugged in the DG2.
Installing MusicMatch Jukebox Plus
After the DG2's USB drivers have loaded, you will be ready to start recording. The DG2 works with any Windows compatible media player, although to help make things easy we've included a full version of MusicMatch Jukebox Plus. This powerful software will let you quickly rip and encode tracks from CDs, run customized playlists, and apply graphic equalization to all of your recordings. After exhaustive testing, we definitely think MusicMatch is one of the best programs around for getting superior results. To install MusicMatch Jukebox Plus please do the following: 1. Insert the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus CD into your CD-ROM drive. 2. When the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus splash screen opens, click on the option Install Jukebox Plus and follow the onscreen instructions. A users manual detailing how to use MusicMatch Jukebox Plus is contained on the CD. If you wish to view the manual, simply insert the MusicMatch CD into your CD-ROM drive and select User's Guide.

Recording from PC to MiniDisc with the DG2
Wearing the headphones connected to the MiniDisc recorder, start to slowly raise the volume control in MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, or your favorite media player. You will start to hear the volume increase through the headphones.
WARNING - It is important to read through these instructions carefully and to adjust the volume
controls as directed. Do not at any stage place headphones on your ears without first checking that the volume controls are set to a minimum and slowly raised to a comfortable listening level.
Make sure that you raise the volume control only to an appropriate level for your MiniDisc recorder. If you increase the volume past the signal level that the MiniDisc recorder can tolerate, it will cause distortion in your recording. Many MiniDisc recorders have a level display that lets you monitor the input signal strength.
10. The DG2 has two recording modes: continual and discrete. The continual mode is for those MD recorders that require a continual digital stream to initiate their recording mechanisms and automatically track mark. The discrete mode works with certain models by playing tracks as individual digital blocks, thus supporting automatic track marking on those MD recorders that operate without needing a continual digital audio stream. If you are using a late model Sony or Aiwa portable recorder, you can use either mode. For Sharp and JVC owners, we recommend using the continual mode. For recording to home MD decks, the continual mode is also recommended. For all other recorders, we suggest trying both modes to see what provides the best results for you. 12. Discrete Mode Recording 1. The toggle for switching between continual and discrete modes is located next to the USB input on the DG2. Put the switch into the up position to set the DG2 into discrete recording mode. 2. Before starting, make sure that the Wave Balance volume slider is set to a minimum. You can access the DG2's volume slider by double clicking the speaker icon at the bottom right had side of the Windows task bar. 3. 4. 5. Plug a set of headphones or monitor speakers into your MiniDisc recorder. With the supplied TOSLINK cable, connect the DG2 to the Line-In of your MiniDisc recorder. Start MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, or your favorite Windows media player, and load a selection of wav or MP3 files to be recorded. 6. If you are using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, go to point 6 now. If you are not intending on using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, you'll have to verify that your preferred media player controls the Wave Balance slider in the DG2 Volume Control panel. Press play on your media player and open the DG2 volume control panel by double clicking on the speaker icon down in the Windows task bar at the bottom right had corner of your screen. Move the volume control up and down on the media player and watch to see if the Wave Balance slider moves in the DG2 Volume Control panel. If the Wave Balance slider does not move, your media player is not correctly controlling the DG2 and may not be running to the Windows protocol. If this is the case, you will have to manually set the volume output of the DG2 by using the Wave Balance slider rather than the volume control in your favorite media player. You may also consider using a media player that is Windows compliant. 7. Set the volume of MusicMatch Jukebox Plus or your favorite media player to minimum. Press record on your MiniDisc recorder. Press play on MusicMatch Jukebox Plus or your favorite media player. Your MiniDisc recorder should start recording. 3. 4. 5. 2. 11.

You have set the levels of your DG2 for recording. You can now load a playlist and start a full session. MusicMatch Jukebox Plus includes a 3 second gapping feature designed to automatically add track marks when recording to MiniDisc with an AN1 or in continual mode with the DG2. Due to the advanced design of the DG2, track marks will automatically be added during discrete mode recording without the need for a 3 second gap of silence. Make sure that you therefore disable the 3 second gapping feature in MusicMatch Jukebox Plus before recording. To do this, Start MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, click on File, then scroll down and click on MiniDisc Analog Trackmarking. The check mark will disappear to show the feature is no longer enabled. During recording it not advisable to use any other applications on your system. Most MP3 players require large amounts of resources to ensure flawless MP3 decoding and playback. If you interfere with the computer during recording, it can affect MP3 decoding, which can in turn affect the quality of your recording or the addition of track marks. Read the next section for further tips on getting the best results out of your DG2.
Note: When set in discrete mode, the DG2 automatic track marking feature is defeated by the way the Windows Media Player spools its digital audio in Windows ME. We recommend users of Windows ME use MusicMatch Jukebox when requiring automatic track marking. Note: If you are noticing a large amount of track marks being randomly inserted into your recordings, or are missing the first few seconds of audio at the beginning of each track, please try recording using the continual mode. If you are still getting multiple track marks using the continual mode, please refer to the troubleshooting guide at the end of this user manual for further information.
Continual Mode Recording 1. The toggle for switching between continual and discrete modes is located next to the USB input on the DG2. Put the switch into the down position to set the DG2 into continual recording mode. Before starting, make sure that the Wave Balance volume slider is set to a minimum. You can access the DG2's volume slider by double clicking the speaker icon at the bottom right hand side of the Windows task bar. Plug a set of headphones or monitor speakers into your MiniDisc recorder. With the supplied TOSLINK cable, connect the DG2 to the Line-In of your MiniDisc recorder. Start MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, or your favorite Windows media player, and load a selection of wav or MP3 files to be recorded.

If you are using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, go to point 7 now. If you are not intending on using MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, you'll have to verify that your preferred media player controls the Wave Balance slider in the DG2 Volume Control panel. Press play on your media player and open the DG2 volume control panel by double clicking on the speaker icon down in the Windows task bar at the bottom right had corner of your screen. Move the volume control up and down on the media player and watch to see if the Wave Balance slider moves in the DG2 Volume Control panel. If the Wave Balance slider does not move, your media player is not correctly controlling the DG2 and may not be running to the Windows protocol. If this is the case, you will have to manually set the volume output of the DG2 by using the Wave Balance slider rather than the volume control in your favorite media player. You may also consider using a media player that is Windows compliant.

The first is that the original source MP3 or wav file contains distortion, or is being corrupted during playback. Because the DG2 plays these files exactly, any anomalies in an original recording, or that occur during playback, will also be played. To reduce the likelihood of distortion in your source file, make sure not to use your computer for any other tasks during ripping, MP3 compression, or playback. Contact the vendor of your ripper and encoder to make sure you meet their minimum system requirements and are using the program correctly. If your source file does not contain any distortion, another place that it can be corrupted is in the MiniDisc recorder. Make sure that the DG2's output level is not set too high. Having the output of the DG2 set higher than the maximum input level of your MiniDisc recorder can cause degradation in sound quality. Most MiniDisc recorders have an input level indicator that allows you to monitor the strength of the input signal. Verify that the MiniDisc recorder is not being overloaded. If distortion is still occurring, make sure that the lens of your MiniDisc recorder is clean. The DG2 automatically adds track marks on supported MD recorders without the need for a two or three second gap of silence between each track in the discrete recording mode. Many media players offer a gapping facility as a plug-in. Make sure to disable any gapping feature before recording with the DG2 in the discrete recording mode. MusicMatch Jukebox Plus includes a special feature for users that record using an AN1 or in the continual record mode with the DG2, that automatically adds a 3 second gap of silence between tracks during playback. To turn the MusicMatch Jukebox Plus gapping feature off, click on File in MusicMatch Jukebox Plus, then scroll down and click on MiniDisc Analog Trackmarking. The check mark will disappear to show the feature is disabled.
Set the volume of MusicMatch Jukebox Plus or your favorite media player to minimum. Press record on your MiniDisc recorder. Press play on MusicMatch Jukebox Plus or your favorite media player. Your MiniDisc recorder should start recording.

During recording it not advisable to use any other applications on your system. Most MP3 players require large amounts of resources to ensure flawless MP3 decoding and playback. If you interfere with the computer during recording, it can effect MP3 decoding, which can in turn effect the quality of your recording. Read the next section for further tips on getting the best results out of your DG2.
Tips for getting the best results with your DG2
The DG2 is a high fidelity, digital medium for transferring audio between a PC and MiniDisc recorder. Because its digital, it will only ever send what information it receives and cannot therefore effect the quality of your recording in any way. If you're finding distortion in a recording, there are a couple of possible reasons.
1. My computer doesnt seem to have all the right drivers in Windows. Problem: After plugging in your DG2 for the first time, Windows doesnt seem to automatically default to where the drivers should be and you cant seem to find them on the Windows CD either. Fix: A lot of the large branded computer manufacturers ship their systems with a cutdown OEM version of Windows that does not always include all the USB audio components. Because this is specific to each manufacturer, you will need to contact the one who built your system and ask them to send you a USB audio upgrade to bring your version of Windows up to the same standard as the retail version.

Page 12

The DG2 does not need any special device drivers, using only the following generic Windows ones that are usually stored in the listed directories for each USB component: C:\win\inf\usb.inf - driver location for USB Composite Device C:\win\inf\hiddev.inf - driver location for USB Human Interface Device C:\win\inf\wdma_usb.inf - driver location for USB Audio Device These drivers are all that is needed to operate the DG2. 2. My DG2 looked to install fine, but I cant select it as preferred device.
The main instances where this occurs is if: USB frame rates are out of specification - isochronous data transfer (required for audio) is not possible via USB with a frame rate that is too fast or too slow. Controllers do not enumerate devices correctly - some controllers do not send USB resets at the appropriate times or may enumerate one part of a composite device. Corrupting audio data - some USB controllers introduce artifacts into sound data (i.e. CATC traces of USB data have shown non-zero vales in data that should be all zeros). To solve this problem, we firstly suggest recording using the DG2s continual mode setting. Also make sure
Problem: Your DG2 went through most of the driver install, or all of the driver installation fine, but now when you try to select it in the Playback section of the multimedia control panel, there doesnt appear to be any option for USB audio device. Fix: The symptom occurs where large branded computer manufacturers ship their systems with a cutdown OEM version of Windows that does not always include all the USB audio components. Because this is specific to each manufacturer, you will need to contact the one who built your system and ask them to send you a USB audio upgrade to bring your version of Windows up to the same standard as the retail version. The DG2 does not need any special device drivers, using only the following generic Windows ones that are usually stored in the listed directories for each USB component: C:\win\inf\usb.inf - driver location for USB Composite Device C:\win\inf\hiddev.inf - driver location for USB Human Interface Device C:\win\inf\wdma_usb.inf - driver location for USB Audio Device Even though these drivers may be present on your system, if the OEM version of Windows you are running does not contain all the underlying USB audio components, you will not be able to select USB Audio Device as the preferred playback device in the Multimedia Window. You will need to contact the supplier of your system to obtain an upgrade patch that brings your entire USB audio system up to the minimum specification of the retail version of Windows. 3. My DG2 fails to set itself as preferred audio device automatically. Problem: When you plug in the DG2, it is not automatically being configured as preferred audio device.

you are not running any other programs in the background when trying to record with the DG2 - anything that causes a lot of hard disk access can effect the data flowing down the USB bus. Virus checking programs that continually run in the background are particular bad. Some drastically effect the isochronous data flow down the USB bus and starve the DG2 of data. It is therefore important to disable all virus checking programs if you are getting multiple track marks. Also, make sure that you are running the most up to date drivers for your graphics cards and modems. If you are on a network, it is advisable to log off. Note: If you are using a laptop or notebook computer, the data flowing to the DG2 can be severely effected by the processing power management of the CPU. Ensure that in the System control panel your computer is set to Desktop. To verify this, go to Start, then Settings, then Control Panel. Click on System and go to the Performance Tab. In Performance, click on File System and make sure your laptop is set to Desktop and not Server. Some laptops are not suitable for the decoding and recording of MP3 via USB due to the variable operating speed of their CPU and other power management features. 5. My MD recorder is cutting off a fraction of a second at the beginning of some tracks. Problem: When recording through the DG2, your MD recorder seems to be losing a fraction of a second worth of audio at the beginning of some tracks. Fix: If the MP3 or audio file you are trying to record starts with a series of rapid attacks (such as loud drum beats etc) it may take a fraction of a second for your MD recorder to set its digital recording levels. This is a normal function of the MD recorder. To overcome this, it is suggested you record in the continual mode. 6. My MD recorder is cutting off seconds at the beginning of each new track. Problem: When recording through the DG2, your MD recorder seems to be cutting off a second or more worth of audio at the beginning of each new track. Fix: This occurs on those MD recorders that do not support discrete mode recording. Make sure to set your DG2 for continual mode recording.
Fix: This occurs if a systems soundcard is ISA based common for standard on board audio solutions (since Windows cannot automatically take a setting away from an ISA soundcard and give it to the DG2). It will also occur if you are running an audio program when you plug in or unplug the DG2. Make sure to therefore close all audio programs before doing this. You may need to configure your computer manually by selecting USB Audio Device in the Multimedia Control Panel or the Sounds and Multimedia Properties control panel. See the section "Checking that the DG2 is selected as preferred device in Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows 2000" earlier in this manual for further details.

4. My DG2 seems to be putting trackmarks all over the place. Problem: Youve installed the DG2 and it seems to be recording fine, except there are track marks appearing all over the place. Fix: Some USB host controllers do not function within USB specification. Also Windows, in conjunction with other hardware in your system, may be consuming all the isochronous bandwidth of the USB bus. Both of these interfere with the data flowing to the DG2, causing it to randomly insert track marks.

Automatic T rack Marking

In order to assist your MD recorder in adding track marks, you can use the Analog Minidisc Trackmarking feature that comes standard with MusicMatch Jukebox Plus. By enabling this feature, a three-second gap of silence is automatically inserted between tracks, helping your MD recorder insert track marks. To verify that this feature is turned on, in MusicMatch Jukebox Plus go to Edit then Preferences. Down the bottom of the screen is a selection box next to the title Minidisc Analog Trackmarking. Put a check in this box to enable the gapping feature you should find that it already has a check by default. If you dont want to use this feature,

Recording to MiniDisc with the DG2

Xitel Overview

Product Backgrounder:

HiFi-Link

The Xitel HiFi-Link represented Xitels first major thrust to become a worldwide brand delivering a range of precision digital audio products to both consumer and professional markets. It allows for the connection of a Windows or Mac computer to a home stereo or boombox to get the most from MP3s, streaming audio and Internet Radio. Users can take advantage of the HiFiLinks advanced rendering technology to process digital audio directly from the USB without the signal degradation, distortion and hiss of an inferior soundcard. Bypassing the generic soundcards included in most computers is critical to obtaining high fidelity audio. Soundcards are typically a poor source for high quality audio simply because they act as rudimentary audio processors for output devices such as headphones and multimedia speakers. Soundcards also reside in a noisy environment inside the computers case, caused by electromagnetic radiation emitting from all unshielded components. HiFi-Link is an entirely external device. Because it is effectively isolated from this radiation, and due to its specific design for connecting exclusively to stereo equipment, it produces an optimum signal for superior performance. professional components and advanced ground loop isolation to ensure the best possible results. Aimed at the millions of people keen to digitally save their valuable LP records and tapes, the INport dramatically improves the recording capabilities of any computer without having to open the case. Incorporating a sophisticated digital-rendering engine, the INports high fidelity USB interface bypasses typically inferior soundcards to transform a desktop or notebook into a powerful recording studio in a few simple steps. Designed to work with all Windows compatible recording and editing software, the INport comes with its own powerful suite of applications that greatly simplify the recording the process, making it easy to achieve fantastic results with an absolute minimum of fuss.

MD-Port I/O

Xitels prominent involvement in USB audio design and manufacture led Sony to bundle the MD-Port AN1, DG1 and DG2 with its MiniDisc recorders worldwide.The newest MDPort I/O builds on that success by allowing users to record music from PC to MiniDisc, and from MiniDisc back into their computer with the highest possible fidelity and convenience. The MD-Port I/O has been specifically built for MiniDisc applications and offers a totally custom platform by bypassing the generic soundcards found in most computers. Soundcards are a typically poor source for MiniDisc recording because they act as rudimentary audio processors and lack digital output capabilities. The MD-Port overcomes this through its external design, fully isolating it against distortion or interference caused by radiation sources. Integration of unique features and components ensure superb fidelity with advanced optical digital output and ultra clean analog input for maximum clarity & definition. The MD-Port I/Os digital optical output supports all music formats not recognized by NetMDs transfer software, including real time streaming content. Meanwhile its input works seamlessly to record from a MiniDisc headphone jack back into the computer. The MD-Port I/O works with all Windows compatible recording and playing software, including Windows Media Player, Winamp, RealAudio Player, LiquidAudio Player, MusicMatch Jukebox, and many others.

Pro HiFi-Link

Pro HiFi-Link builds on the HiFi-Links architecture by allowing DVD surround sound, Internet Radio, streaming audio and MP3s to be digitally played from a PC to a home receiver, amplifier, or portable boombox, creating a listening experience that is more alive, vibrant and natural. Its unique plug n play interface transforms the PC into a high quality digital media center, allowing users to radically improve their existing audio performance in a few simple steps. Its superior rendering technology digitally processes audio directly from the computers USB into an optimum signal perfectly matched with the coaxial, optical or RCA inputs of a home stereo system. By totally bypassing the computers soundcard, the Pro HiFi-Link sophisticated hardware engine ensures the same level of performance typically associated with premium audio components. Its versatile technology even allows users to play DVDs on their computer and send Dolby Digital or DTS Digital Surround Sound to 5.1 channel receivers via distortion free coaxial or optical digital cable for an amazingly rich home theater experience. Due to its outstanding performance, the Pro HiFi-Link has received numerous awards including PC Magazines 5 Star Rating of Excellence & PC Worlds Editors Pick.

Digital Audio Pioneers

Since 1996, Xitel has been a pioneer in the field of precision audio technology and has delivered a range of innovative products, including a line of critically acclaimed sound cards targeted toward the PC gaming market. Xitel commenced a relationship with Sony in 1999, when Sony first approached Xitel about using their MD-Port product line to form a MiniDisc bundle. The MD-Port leveraged Xitels proprietary digital audio rendering technology and almost overnight Web-enabled Sonys line of portable MiniDisc recorders. This allowed the MiniDisc bundles to successfully compete against an array of MP3 players that entered the market in 2000 and 2001. Sonys MiniDisc bundles went on to become the highest selling digital audio products in North America for both 2000 and 2001. With its proven manufacturing ability, Xitel was not only able to meet the rapid increase in demand, but was also able to provide such exceptional quality that not one field failure was returned by Sony. As a testament to Xitels thorough product development, support calls were received only on a fraction of a percent of the total number of units shipped. In recognition of its high standards, Sony has since awarded Xitel the prestigious status of Sony Green Partner. The success of the MD-Ports inspired Xitel to use its core audio technology in a broader range of applications. This resulted in the launch of HiFi-Link in June 2002, a device that allowed consumers to connect their computer to their home stereo as though it were a piece of high-end audio equipment. Xitel quickly followed with additional high fidelity audio products including Pro HiFi-Link, MD Port I/O, Ground Loop Isolator, INport and SOUNDaround.

SOUNDaround

SOUNDaround is the first product in Xitels new line of ground breaking consumer electronics. It allows users to turn DVD movies and games into vibrant home theater surround sound using two normal speakers.With SOUNDaround, you can convert your existing stereo TV or home stereo equipment into a fantastic sounding home cinema without having to install any additional speakers or other expensive equipment. Most audio companies would have you believe that in order to create realistic home theater sound, you need to fill your room with speakers.This is largely because they want to sell you those new speakers along with the necessary cables and amplifiers.This can be expensive and also requires precise installation to get things right. If a speaker is placed wrongly, or if you install the wrong speaker, the results can be very disappointing. SOUNDaround is a solution that gives you a movie-like experience without any complex installation or the additional cost of expensive equipment. SOUNDaround transforms the two normal speakers in most of your existing equipment into a rich cinema experience. It is based on advanced principals of psychoacoustics, which is the technical way of describing how your brain processes what your ears hear. Using complex mathematical calculations, the SOUNDaround stimulates your brain into believing sounds are coming from all around using just two ordinary speakers. In a matter of minutes you can enjoy home theater sound through your standard home hi-fi, stereo TV, or even headphones.
