The MiniDisc or MD minidisk is a magneto-optical digital disc developed in the 90s by  Sony. It is  smaller than a conventional CD and has an increased capacity compared with it. The Japanese company wanted to move on with its flagship device, which was released in Japan in January 1992 as an attempt to replace the tape cassette. Sony  has announced that it will stop the distribution of the device from March 2013 on, due to its low demand .
