A video about Sony Minidisc from the beginning to the end.
.....................(ebay links etc below) - click SHOW MORE.
In this video you'll see the first machine and the last machine as well as some in-between. There's talk about MD-LP, Net-MD and HiMD. It's a personal retrospective of a format that was loved by many people around the world but one that is all too often is judged purely on it's lack of performance in the US market.

-----UPDATE/ADDENDUM-----

IMPORTANT UPDATE: +++++++++++It is possible to get Sonic Stage running on Windows 10. +++++++++
However the software is no longer officially supported or updated by Sony.

More info was posted in early comments.

Q) Why don't you do a video about (Insert format here) [e.g. UMD]
A) I aim to make a video about... EVERRRRYYYYYYY (said in the manner of Gary Oldman in Leon) Format over time. If you see something appear in one of my videos that I haven't made a separate video about - you can safely assume that a video about this item is in the planning stages. The planning stages can take me years before the video gets made.
