The Sony Net MD is defined as an extension format of the MiniDisc which is capable of providing solutions for the direct transfer of compressed ATRAC media files. The data transfer process from a computer system to the MiniDisc is made possible by the connection of the supported hardware component to the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the host computer system. The corresponding device driver must be present in the machine to successfully achieve this process as well as for the host computer system to correctly identify the connected hardware component. According to the manufacturer of the device the audio transfer rates that can be achieved by this connection is considerably faster compared to real time. This means that depending on the actual Net MD unit used, the audio transfer rate for an LP4 media file can reach up to 64 times faster.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
NetMD is primarily considered as a format extension because it requires a complimentary software application installed in the computer system intended to host the device. This means that the device driver for the Sony Net MD is normally bundled with a corresponding software application. In this context one of the most important roles of the device driver is to ensure that the software application can communicate successfully with the attached hardware component. The device driver also makes it possible for the corresponding software application to assume control over some of the feature sets of the Sony Net MD as well as the data transfer routines initiated by the computer user. The manufacturer works on the premise that since the protocols for the Universal Serial Bus interface port are standardized there will be no problems during the connection, detection, and data transfer process. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Sony Net MD errors before installing any driver updates.
