Open the device manager and check to see if the audio drivers are there. Any device that needs drivers will have a yellow question mark next to them. If they aren't there, you will need to go to Dell's support site and download them. If they are, then unistall the audio/sound drivers and reboot. The machine will find the sound card and reinstall the drivers. With some sound drivers, but not all, they do not automatically adjust the sound settings, leaving the volume very low or muted, therefore you may need to manually adjust the sound settings.

Casette to disc


to convert music from cassett to disk u need to connect the cassett player headphone jack / line out jack to ur PC/laptop mike / line in jack....then play the music and record it in a software(Nero Sound editor etc)
then once that's done save it as mp3 file on to ut PC and trf it to ur cd/disk....u can just copy it as mp3 or create a music cd using Nero...from the mp3 file
the difference is if u just copy the mp3 on to the cd then only a mp3 player/mp3 music system deck can play it... if it's created as a music cd then any cd player can play it....just like any music cd that u buy in the mkt...
a 700 mb disk can hold almost 7 to 10 hrs of music in mp3 format....
but a music disk can hold only 80 mins of music

Dell Latitude D800 PC Notebook" Problem No sound


Which sounds? Do system sounds work? Are you unable to hear music from CDs?
There could be one of several things wrong. In the device manager, you will need to check to see if you have a sound card that is functioning. In Accessories>entertainment, you need to check the sound settings to be sure your speakers are not muted.
Most often it's a sound driver issue. When you go into sounds from the control panel and try to play system sounds, the little arrow that lets you test the sound is grayed out--meaning you have no sound drivers.
If it seems to be playing, then you have either turned the volume down or off or you have a problem with the hardware.

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.
Good Luck! - Chris Proia

Unable to clear non music files from mp3?


I'm a bit confused by your description, but you ARE talking about non music files... Is it possible at all that you deleted system files from your player? If so it really wouldn't respond. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Another thing to try is recovering you system files through a firware upgrade/install. I'm not sure it will work, but would you mind being a guinea pig? let us know how it turned out. Good luck
