You need some form of software to port it out. Basically, you can use windows sound recorder and hear it for the duration of the recording and play it back that way but it's only 30 seconds at a time. You need software to feedback the audio all the time. Maybe DJ software or something like that would do the trick.

Wharfedale s20030 speakers broken?


First, check input power (electricity) of your speaker. You can see lamp indicator on speaker (usually LED lamp, Light Emitting Diode, green light or else) must be light ON.
Two, jack line out (usually green) on the speaker, you must touch that jack. Don't worry, you can't heart attack cause of it (for touching that jack, DC-Direct Current supply). If you hear some noise, sound of droning, buzzing, that is indicate of sound will be come out from that speaker.
Three, you play WinAmp software (or Windows Media Player, from Microsoft) and get in one of mp3 file, and load it into WinAmp player. Make sure if your mp3 file is normally sound.
Four, plug in your green jack (of speaker) to the line in of your sound card (refer to mainboard PC, if your soundcard get in ONBOARD or plug in PCI slot). Green jack line of speaker to socket green of sound card.
Five, now you can hear sound of your song....

To connect a music player or other audio device to your laptop


<br />If your laptop has a line-in jack, follow the instructions above for connecting a music player to a desktop computer. But to connect a music player or other audio device to most laptops, you'll have to plug it into a microphone jack. To do so, follow these steps:<br /><br />Click to open Sound. <br /><br />Click the Recording tab, click Microphone, and then click Properties.<br /><br />Click the Listen tab, click the Listen to this device check box, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Click the Levels tab and make sure the Mute button looks like this . If the button looks like this , click it to turn on sound for this connection, and then click Apply.<br /><br />Play some music or other sounds on your device to test the volume coming through your computer speakers. Select the slider under Microphone, drag it right or left to increase or decrease the volume of your audio device, and then click OK. You might also want to adjust the volume on your device.<br /><br />Note<br />If you hear noise coming out of your speakers, try reducing the volume on both the music player and in the Levels tab. The microphone jack is designed to receive sound from a microphone, which is different than sound coming from a music player

Is there a program out there that will convert my old cassette tapes or vinyl...


The short answer is yes. There is a program out there that will record cassette tapes or vinyl records to CD. Today, I will show you how. If you have the right software and the right cords, getting your cassettes and Vinyl onto your computer, then onto CDs, is a pretty easy task. Just follow the steps below and you will be on your way to bringing your audio into the 21st century! What you need: To make the conversion, you will need a (free) audio recording program, a tape or record player and a cord to connect the device to your computer. Here's a breakdown:
1. Audacity. This is the program that will record your audio to your computer.
2. LAME-encoder. This is a file that will convert your audio to MP3.
3. A record player or cassette player. Hopefully you already have one of these.
4. A cord to connect the player to your computer.


The first step is to install Audacity and LAME,
Now that we have the software installed, we can look at connecting your tape player, or record player, to your computer.
Your player will have one of two types of outputs. You will either have a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, or RCA audio output jacks.
If your device has RCA outputs (left image)to connect to your computer.
If your device has a 3.5mm jack (right image) to connect to your computer.
The other end of the cable will connect to the line in jack on your computer

Now that we have the software installed and the cassette/record player connected to the computer, let's record something!
Put a cassette or LP into your player. Get the player to the place where you want to start recording and pause or stop the player.
Now, let's stop messing with all this hardware and get the computer set up. First, go to your control panel and open your audio settings.
In XP, go to the audio tab and click "volume" under sound recording. Place a check next to "line in". If you don't see a "line in" option go to options and click advanced. Place a check next to "line in" there.
In Vista/7 go to the recording tab. find your line in, select it then choose "set default". Click on "properties", go to the levels tab and turn up the level to 80 or 100. (This varies depending on what you are recording so you may need to adjust this to get it right).
As you can see, Audacity is pretty much a more advanced sound recorder. To begin recording, press the play button on your record/cassette player then click the red "record" circle on audacity. You are now recording to your computer! When you are done, click stop on audacity and press stop on your player.
After recording, you can now export your audio as an MP3. Go to the file menu and click "Export as MP3". You can now choose the name of the file and save to wherever you want. You are done recording!

I can not use my computer microphone for live talk my computer acer aspire 5570z, other person to whom I talk can not hear my voice


Make sure the microphone jack plugged into the right jack socket
and that the microphone is plugged into the socket at the front of the pc.

In WinXP go to Control Panel\Sounds and Audio\Voice\Test hardware, this will test your mic by recording from it and playing it back.

If you are using a sound card go through the software setting.

I have acer extensa 4220 laptop when i plug in head phones in the laptop the sound still keeps on coming from the built in speakers and not the head phones


khalid276,

I had this problem also on my acer aspire 5520. This laptop has 2 3.5mm jacks. It was a bit embarrassing, but I had the headphones plugged into the input jack. Make sure that you have the head phones jack plugged into the correct jack.

I hope this helps!

Make recovery discs for travelmate 5520


Hi,

There are two (2) versions of the Acer TravelMate 5520; TM5520-5313 (LX.TKU0Z.001) & TM5520-5678 (LX.TKU0Z.003).

There are two (2) possible ways you can get Recovery CDs:
1. Purchase from Acer here. You would need your 22 character Serial Number or the SNID which is 11 chars.;
2. Borrow from a friend with identical model, copy and burn to CD(s).

Alternately, you can install Windows Vista using an OEM CD (which again can be borrowed). You need to use the Windows key normally found in a sticker underneath the laptop. Thereafter, you need to download from the Acer website the appropriate drivers and install. You would need to select your Product Line, the Product itself and eventually the driver(s) that you need.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
