I am getting the Sony NHF-800 Hi-MD recorder. Not only it can do live
audio recording, the spec indicates the 1GB cartridge ($7 ea) can be
used as a storage purposes. The files can be easily transfered using a
computer but I am wondering if there are add-on devices that can allow
transfers from memory card to the Hi-MD disc.

I would take a gander into the rec.audio.minidisc group before leaping.
Minidiscs have some awful limitations, imposed by Sony. Transferring to
DVD would be a lot better - and easier.

Sony has a card-reader add-on for the Hi-MD line, the MCM-DR1--you can
see their announcement at

And there are pictures (and Dutch text) at

Unless you're uploading music files, a Hi-MD recorder appears as a
drive--though you do have to install the rather clunky Sony software to
make the connection. Only music files get the pain-in-the-butt
treatment.

This info comes via Minidisc.org.
