My advice is to move on.

I was an early adopter of the minidisc format. Had the Sony rack component and the portable discman for travel. I loved the editing features and nonlinear operation. Before podcasting, I used minidisc to record audio streams from the web.

Not quite a year ago, the component recoroder kind of went nuts and failed to correctly update and read table of contenets info. I wound up with bad discs and wiped out some stuff I considered precious.

In doing some web research, I found a couple of places in the UK that did "surgery" on the file structure, but it was pricey and they can't guarantee successful recovery. Ultimately I gave up on it. The industry had dropped the format and, considering what you can do with cheap and reliable PC software, there's no reason for me to keep pushing that rock up the hill.
