Sony’s Hi-MD and MZ-RH1 Hi-MD Player are now officially dead!

Sony’s Hi-MD and MZ-RH1 Hi-MD Player are now officially dead!

Sony announced yesterday its plan to phase-out its latest 1GB Hi-MD products including the 1GB HMD1GA disk with an end schedule for September 2012, and Sony’s only Hi-MD player the MZ-RH1 with an end schedule for September 2011 in Japan.
Despite all you can say about Sony, MD and Hi-MD have been a HUGE success and was a great technology it is really pity however that Sony never did anything to improve this technology and better adapt it to nowadays audio format, and never succeed to make the Hi-MD a successful way to store DATA.

    I used MD and HiMD for years, but finally gave up when it was apparent that Sony had no interest in truly developing the tech any further. Sad to hear as those little discs were very tough. RIP MD/HiMD.

    Before the arrival of Zip (and even a little after that), then (re)writable CD and DVDs, I had rather hoped that MD would have become a more accessible format for both audio and data.
