I still think the minidisk idea is a good one for the following reasons: 1) For 129 sony sells one that has usb built in. 2) With 1 AA battery ...plays 55 hours! 3) Records in digital! 4) 32 x speed if you download mp3's into it...so you can use it as mp3 player. 5) Since you only have psr540 at this point, makes sense to me, rather than 450 cdrw external! 6) you can than store your music on minidisk until someone lets you use their computer that has a cdrw in it! Then ask them to show you how to make a cd! Really simple! 7) ONce you buy pc ... most have cdrw in it... so then you are set!
I think the external professional cdrw and mixer is for Bands! Not for a solo with just a psr540! IMO rgtaa
P.s I got a SONY home deck minidisk and a SHARP minidisk portable recorder/player... I bought them a couple of years ago ...so with new tech level ...figure the news ones are even better! Good LUCK! Just do a SEARCH on the web for Minidisk Recorders/Players ! Maybe go to BEST BUY and see what they got... I think you have 14 days to check it out ... to see if it works for you! If not Return it!
