Inspired by a recent thread here on MiniDisc I dusted off my Sony MDS-JE520 with the idea to use a MD walkman in my car for albums / music that aren't available on streaming (don't have a CD player in my car, in fact I never had ... I did have at one point an in-car soundsystem that had a MD player). So I hooked the MDS-JE520 up to my Marantz CD6007 using the optical connection and started recording a CD but sadly it records it as one track which is a bit of a drag. I had hoped that using the optical out / in of both that the Automatic Track Marking would work. Checking the manual it does say that it should possibly work with non Sony players but not guaranteed. Since I have still plans to convert one of my spare bedrooms into a home office where I will need a decent sound system as well I am thinking about at least getting a Sony CD player that will communicate well with my MD deck so I don't have to edit post recording. I guess a CD player that was released by Sony around the same time as this MiniDisc deck would be a safe bet but have no clue which one that might be. Anyone have any experience with said MiniDisc deck and Automatic Track Marking using a Sony CDP that might point me in the right direction?
